Have you heard about Heely's? If not let me tell you a little about them and our experience with them! When you open the box you see these directions on the inside of the box!
Heely's are a great two for one, shoes and skates! They are super stylish shoes and are quality made to last. As shoes, they are nicely made, the sole is thick and is sturdy. They seem as if they will last a long time, which is a plus with this mom. One aspect of the shoe that I love, you can completely take out the wheel and put the bracket back on so it is functioning only as a typical shoe. Great because I don't have to fight in the morning before school trying to tell her she can't wear her new shoes to school because they have wheels! Plus, it literally takes seconds to switch from shoe to skate mode. You can be ready to ride in no time!
Brooklynn was very excited about the new shoes but was also a little nervous to use them. We watched a few tutorials on the Heely's website to make sure we knew what we were doing before going out to the driveway. I helped Brooklynn roll down the driveway a few times holding onto her arms to help her balance. Okay so here is a real problem we encountered, because she has skated before she wasn't used to needing to lift up her toes. The first few times weren't that easy and she had a hard time keeping her balance.
After using the Heely's a few more times she is starting to get the hang of it which was great. It is just going to take more practice and maybe even time practicing in the house. It is also about feeling confident enough to take off running in the Heely's to zoom like the videos displayed. Brooklynn happens to not be much of a risk taker, which means we need to practice more to build up confidence after she fell outside!
We do think it will be a lot of fun and very good exercise once she masters the skill!
