Toy Fair Scoop: The Kixi Mixi Convertible Scooter
Out of the tens of thousands of new toys at the 2013 American International Toy Fair, the KIXI MIXI convertible kick scooter from Razor was one of my favorites! Here’s why I think kids will love it too.
Toy Name: The Kixi Mixie convertible kick scooter by Razor
The Scoop: Razor has come up with a “why didn’t I think of that?!” Scooter that grows up with your little one. The Kixi Mixi scooter quickly and easily changes from a three to a two wheeled scooter. A child will certainly feel more comfortable starting on a scooter with three wheels. As the child gains better balance and more confidence with improved scooting ability, it’s time to make the switch to two wheels! Sturdy construction, comfy foam handle bars, and large wheels will help the little one hit road. The Kixi Mixi comes in two colors – a blue/green model and pink/blue/purple one as well.
A Great Gift For: The get-up-n-go boys and girls ages 3 and up (up to 45 lbs) who can’t wait to get their wheels. Helmet owners only!
When & How Much? Available this Spring for around $40
