Heelys Review

My daughter has wanted a pair of Heelys as long as I can remember, but they did not come in a small enough size to fit her.  Her foot is finally big enough for a pair and she recently got her very first Heelys.  She was ecstatic!  I surprised her with a pair and she did not waste any time popping in the wheels and trying them on.  At first she didn't really get how to use them, but after a little bit of trying she got it down.

If you have never heard of Heelys before, they are shoes with a wheel that pops into the heel part.  The ones she got have only one wheel but they also come with two wheels, and now also available is an inline footboard.  There are tons of colors and styles to choose from, for both guys and girls, it was actually really hard for me to choose.  Heelys can also be worn as regular shoes by popping the wheel back out in as little as 3 seconds.  The ones I picked for her are the Sassy
They're purple and sparkly, have rhinestones on the toe, and are very girly and cute.  Totally her style!  Here is a short video that shows you how to use Heelys.

What I love about Heelys is that she can go out and skate and play with out having to lug around a skateboard or skates, everything she needs is right there in her shoe.  And if she does decide to pop the wheels out, they're small enough to fit in a purse, backpack or even a larger pocket.  Check out one of their latest styles, for those of you who love the look of canvas shoes
And if you are looking for something designed to give you more speed or to go for greater distances, you have to check out the inline footboard.
Heelys are a great way to get your kids to be more active and they make a very appreciated surprise gift, I know that from experience.  With all the new awesome styles, there is a pair for everyone.  Now I have to get a pair for myself so we can skate together.

As with any skating activity, safety gear such as a helmet, elbow and knee pads are always recommended.

* The generous people of Heelys sent us a pair for review purposes, all opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review*
