Heelys Are Still Brilliant FUN

I remember back to when we were on a family holiday to Florida 2006 and we were strolling around the shopping area at Universal Studios waiting for it to open that we noticed a trainer shop. We had previously seen children zipping round the Disney parks with absolutely no effort and did wonder what on earth they were wearing it was like roller skating but only set in shoes. Once we were in the trainer shop we noticed what all the fuss about it was a trainer shoe called Heelys! At the time J was about 6 years old and a whirlwind everywhere ( though that hadn't changed) .

The Heeleys were perfect for gentle zipping down the Broadwalk at Disney.

Heelys are great for getting your kids outside , wearing a helmet along with arm, elbow and knee pads are a good idea as well it is better to be safe than sorry. Heelys really suited J's whirlwind nature as he had to concentrate on how to use them and this was a lesson in patience for him !

Heeleys would also be perfect for fun in the park , I remember this was the place where I started to learn to roller skate though in the 70's roller skates weren't as hip as they are know and certainly by the 80's the roller disco was a real buzz and draw for teenager . Sadly for me my core skills have never be brilliant and neither is my sense of balance !

Spring is just round the corner ! did you know today is the last day of Winter and that means more sunshine , I am more inclined to get out in the sunshine as it makes me feel better in myself . I know in the next few days I am going to go exploring in my local woods for signs of Spring , and it won't be long till the Spring lambs start appearing.

It is really important for children to get outside as it is for anyone , and getting outside improves everyone , I know when I had my racer bike as a teenager it gave me such independence from my parents that I blossomed. Perhaps your child could use their Heele
ys to zip round to their friend who lives next door maybe.

This is a collaboration post.
