I was recently given the opportunity to review a pair of Heelys. You might be wondering what exactly are Heelys? They are these super cool shoes that look like regular sneakers but have a wheel hidden in the heel so you can skate. You can also pop the wheels out and put a cover over the hole so you can wear them anywhere like regular shoes.
Now, they were SUPPOSED to be for me...I honestly thought about it for 2 seconds. I used to love rollerskating when I was younger and eventually rollerblading but that was two kids and a lot of years ago. I'm pretty sure me being me would have broken something within 5 minutes of putting them on.
Instead I got a pair for Logan and he was absolutely thrilled. I must say when they arrived I was a little disappointed I didn't get a pair for me because they are really cute shoes without the wheel in them. We had a really tough time picking a pair out because they were all so awesome looking. Eventually we decided on ones that look like this except where these are pink his a lime green.
Logan is having a hard time learning how to skate in them though and since I've never done it I've had a hard time giving him pointers. Luckily there is this great how to video available on their website.
I can see that once he gets a hang of it, this will be something for him to do that is fun and also keeps him active. They also have a great safety playbook to go over for yourself or with your child. It is a huge peeve of mine when I am in the store and a kid whizzes by me on their skate shoes, that is something that is NOT reccomended.
