Grandma's Heely Experience #Heelys

11 November 2011

When I was younger I used to love to skate, now.. not so much. I haven't taught the kids how to skate yet, and even though I want to, for some reason skating terrifies me now. But we were given the opportunity to try out a pair of Heely's and even though I knew that I wasn't about to put them on my feet, I knew that Grandma would jump at the chance ( so glad my kids have a cool grandma!!)

About Heely's from their website:
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.

We love that they come in both Kid and Adult sizes and it also helps that Grandma, me and Harm all have roughly the same size foot ( even though Harm is in kids). We chose to review the Heely's in Wave which is an awesome black with Hot Pink accents ( we all LOVE pink), they were a big hit!

Our Heely's weren't like the ones I saw years ago, where you just popped the wheel out and then back in when you were done using it. The heel of the shoe has a little cover over it that you remove with the included tool, and then you just pop the wheels in, though getting them in the first time, gave us a little trouble; they are easy peasy to get in now. And if you decide that you are done using the wheels they pop right out and you can add the cover back in. So in reality you do get a pair of skates and a pair of shoes!

Grandma got the shoes on and was so ready to try them out.. Let me tell you, while I had a good laugh, they are really hard to get used to. Thankfully, there were no falls and Grandma enjoyed trying them out ( and she tries a little more each day), and the kids had a blast watching her! Here's a little video ( sorry there is no sound, someone decided to have a major argument half way through the video).
