So I have to tell you, I was so excited to receive the Heelys X2 Inline
as an item to try out with my family!
We waited a few short weeks and then-- there they were! They came specifically for my 6 year old and he was PUMPED! We ripped the box open and plopped them on his feet.
Heelys is a pretty common name brand now. So many of our neighborhood kids have them and we see the kids whizzing by us. And in mind I would love to have a pair for myself! With the X2 Inline, they made the Heelys into inline skates! Which was the draw for my family! My family and I are so active. We are constantly outside, as long as the weather permits, playing and running around!
Heelys is that sort of combination! The fun of playing on your feet and yet your excising! I can see this being very functional for me, seeing as I’m the one usually chasing after them! Lol. *CRASH* There goes the little guy working on getting his stance and bettering his skills. We did have to watch the online videos they have HERE Which I was so grateful for! He did get quite scared of falling but we kept encouraging and giving him a guiding hand! (Note to self, buy Heelys for the 10yr old for Christmas.) I also gave him the “mom” version of the play book/safety book that I found
In the end the Heelys were a hit for the house! I can’t wait to keep shopping for Christmas. I’m pretty sure the 10 yr will get a much better handle on stance and tricks! Thanks Heelys..
