Mastermind Toys Kick Maxi Kick Scooter #Giveaway

Popular toys are often a part of fads that come and go from one year to the next. Then there are the “classic” toys, toys that stand the test of time.  Classic toys have provided endless fun for many generations of Canadian kids.  The scooter is one of those classic toys.

Seven-year-old X-man is a HUGE scooter fan.  Next to his bicycle, scooters are his favourite outdoor playthings.  I don’t know about you but, I’ve never known one child to have more than one scooter at a time.  X-man has four…no…make that FIVE scooters now.  Thanks to our friends at Canadian toy retailer, Mastermind Toys, lucky X-man just added another scooter to his collection.  But…this isn’t just any ordinary scooter.  X-man is now the happy owner of a Mastermind Toys Maxi Kick T-Bar Scooter.

X-man’s new, Swiss-designed, Maxi Kick Scooter arrived in a big box. The “assembly required” alarm went off in my head.  Being DIY-challenged (do-it-yourself), I set the box aside until the evening, happily handing it over to my “master handyman” boyfriend when he arrived home.  To our complete surprise, the Maxi Kick Scooter was SO easy to put together.  Even I could have done it. Trust me, that says a lot! The Maxi Kick Scooter from Mastermind Toys is a two-piece, click together scooter.  It was ready for X-man to test out in a matter of seconds!

Did you see the front wheels on the Maxi Kick Scooter in my photo above ^.  It is these wheels that make the Maxi Kick Scooter so different from other standard scooters.  These wheels “lean” from side-to-side. The Maxi Kick Scooter has “a unique lean-to-steer mechanism, offering the exciting feeling of surfing the sidewalks”.  

Here are the stats for the Kick Maxi Kick Scooter from the Mastermind Toys website:

  • Maximum Weight Capacity: 118.8 lbs

  • T-bar: 24″ – 35.8″ from standing deck to top of the T-bar handles (adjustable)

  • Rider Height Limit: approximately 5′ 4″

  • Scooter: 58″ long x 4.5″ wide

  • Deck: 13″ long x 5.5″ wide

  • Front Wheels: 4.7″ in diameter, spread 7.9″ apart for stability

  • Back Wheel: 3.3″ in diameter, wheels connected for stability

  • Weight: 5.5 lbs

 The Kick Maxi Kick T-Bar Scooter is made for kids ages 6-10 with a maximum weight of 118.8 lbs.  Never one to stick to the rules, of course I had to try out the scooter for myself while waiting for X-man to arrive.  Let’s just say, I put the 118.8 pound weight limit to the test. I just couldn’t resist trying out this fun looking toy for myself!  To me, the wheels don’t feel like typical scooter wheels.  This scooter “glides” and gives me the same feeling I get when I use my roller blades.  In fact, the wheels on the Kick Maxi Kick Scooter look like roller blade wheels.

Scooter lover, X-Man, was pretty excited to try out his new scooter.  He jumped onto it like a pro, and took off down the driveaway.  I must note, X-man is a kid who loves everything to do with wheels.  Whether it’s “wiggly” wheels, big wheels, car wheels, truck wheels, X-man is a wheel expert.  So the “leaning” wheels on his Kick Maxi Kick Scooter were the first thing X-man noticed about his new scooter, and he loved them.  He demonstrated for us how smoothly they glide over the driveway, and to his delight, how they lean from side-to-side, unlike his other scooters.

 As long as a toy is “fun”, kids don’t generally care if a toy is “well-made”.  Parents, on the other hand, do.  We are extremely impressed with the overall quality of the Kick Maxi Kick Scooter.  All parts appear very durable and strong.  Made from “reinforced fiberglass construction, this scooter provides rugged durability for everyday use while remaining amazingly lightweight”.  Myself, I love the feel of the thick, rubbery handle bars which provide great grip for little hands.  The Kick Maxi Kick Scooter has a great “platform” for little feet to stand on, and is much more stable than many scooters I have seen.

The only problem X-man has with this fantastic scooter is the fact that he says that the brake does not work well for him.  But, he says, “that’s OK”.  He loves his scooter so much that he isn’t bothered by this.  While he doesn’t have a problem with the brakes on his other scooters, we think the brake on his Kick Maxi Kick Scooter may not work well for him because he is on the “low” end of the age/weight scale for this scooter.  After all, this scooter can hold a weight of up to 118 pounds, and X-man weighs less than half of that. No worries though, for smaller children there are many other scooter options including the Kick Mini Kick Scooter.

 X-man loves the steering and says it drives well.  He has been using his scooter a lot over the last couple of weeks and it is holding up very well.  As everyone knows, little boys are NOT easy on their toys, so we are extremely happy with the Kick Maxi Kick Scooter’s durability.  Just like any kid, X-man loves to attempt tricks on his scooter.  Apparently he has already mastered “the bunny hop” on his new Kick Maxi Kick Scooter, lol.

You can be sure that X-man will be enjoying his Kick Maxi Kick Scooter all summer long.  Guess what?  Our good friends at Mastermind Toys are generously offering one lucky Canadian Blog House Member the chance to win one of these fantastic Kick Maxi Kick Scooters ($154.95 Value!).  Here’s how you can enter to WIN!

    My kids have been so curious about the game Operation. I am really on the fence about buying it (at Mastermind, of course) because the game freaked me out so much as a kid! I clearly remember the nasty tone of the buzzing red nose and have not yet quite recovered!

      Sandy

      LOL….your comment really made me laugh, Brenda 🙂 I was a little freaked out by the buzzer as a kid too…but I still loved the game. Thanks for entering..and for the laugh 🙂
