Brayden has wanted a pair of Heelys for the past couple of years after seeing his older cousins cruising around on them. So when I learned that Business2Blogger was looking for reviewers as part of their Heelys Campaign I jumped on the opportunity to get a pair.
Not familiar with Heelys? Heelys are the two-in-one shoe that lets you take life at your own pace. With the wheels out, the stylish designs perform and look just like any other shoe. When you easily put the wheels in, you roll at a different speed. Heelys are about exploring your freedom, unleashing the fun and empowering you to be fearless.
Brayden was so excited to try out his Double Threat Heelys as soon as they arrived. We put his Heelys on and my husband guided him around, letting Brayden hold onto his arm to get the feel of things. We've been working on Brayden using his Heelys all by himself, but unfortunately it's taking a little longer than we expected. I don't know if it's lack of coordination on his part or the fact that he's only 5 years old, but either way he still hasn't quite figured it out yet. The great thing about Heelys is that the wheels come out, so when we're not practicing he can still wear his Heelys on a daily basis.
Though Brayden quite hasn't mastered his Heelys yet, I would definitely still recommend them to others. They're very stylish and lots of fun for older kids and even adults! Heelys come in all sorts of styles and sizes for boys and girls, as well as men and women. Just remember, stay safe when wearing your Heelys..
