Russell Merry of Hotwheels read yesterdays coverage on the Taiwan trade show and emailed us with his take on what was hot

Scoot for loot

You have almost everything on the Taipei show. The one thing missing is that many people called this years show The Taipei Scooter Show. The Micro scoot or Razor scooter was apparently on display in 62 different forms and there were many more versions on display out back on some stands who were keeping their locking mechanism secret.

It’s got tall inline skate wheels, is silver in colour and folds. It’s basically a traditional scooter with inline wheels.

It’s already huge in Japan, big in Australia, getting big in America. We

spoke to at least five different importers at the show who are going to carry them and I understand ML is already carrying them under the Barracuda brand.
