Before you scoff in disbelief at the $450 price tag on this adorable children’s toy, remember that you’re actually getting two ride-ons for the price of one here. The Mini Runner, made from a hydroformed lightweight aluminium frame, converts from a sit down balance bike to a standing scooter with minimal fuss and muss.
The enormous price tag has nothing to do with the tiny four-ring Audi emblem on the front of the toy. What you’re paying for here is craftsmanship and functionality. Try loosening a few bolts on your child’s Huffy and flipping it over. All you’ll be left with is a pile of useless bike parts, and the regret that you didn’t buy this for their birthday.
