Heelys

A few years ago Shriek received  pair of Heelys for Christmas. She worked on them very hard mastering them, and loved every minute of it. Lets now focus on current day. She grew out of her 1st pair and gave them to shout and has gotten another pair and lets just say she rocks! She can turn and go in circles. She is my Heelys hero.

I love things that I can do with my Kiddos so when I had a chance to get a pair of Heelys in my size I was so thrilled. Seriously how cool would my kid’s think I was if I was wheeling around in Heelys? (I mean for now. I know the thinking I am cool part is going to be short lived)

I chose Black and purple heelys and they are super cute, awesome quality and are very comfortable. When I first tried them on I was super nervous and Shriek could literally do circles around me. But little by little I was actually doing it. After I got over the initial fear of having wheels on my feet I was surprised at how easy it was. I still have a ways to go but I am enjoying the practice part of it.

The best part was when Shout, Shriek, and I got on our Heelys. We went outside and Shriek began to give us a crash course. It was such a sweet moment. the three of us learning things from each other. This was why I had wanted them in the first place. I loved watching Shout holding Shriek to keep her steady.

We had the best time. I can’t wait to keep trying and get better and better. maybe I’ll even be better than Shriek one day! I doubt it.

Some times I feel so old and fuddy duddy watching my kid’s outside having fun. Now that I have my own pair of Heelys it includes me in the fun and also gets me off of my tush and doing something active.

I love that Heelys has a skating 101 page on their website. That helps you with the ins and outs. They also have a lot of great safety info.

Heelys is throwing a Labor Day/Back-to-School special!! Between Sept 2-Sept 5, Buy one pair of Heelys, get the second pair for only $30!

They are seriously fun for the family and created lots of laughter. Even though I knew most of the laughter was aimed at me because I am super super slow.

* I received a pair of Heelys through buisness2blogger to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

    You really think I can do it, cuz this post tempts me.

    Or gives me false hopes..

    You decide.
