Will these skates be OK on inside hardwood floors? Mar 18, 2014
We have used them on our solid oak floors (not pr-efinished) and have had no problems, it's actually quite cute and hilarious to watch them in our cold Chicago winter :) These have never been used outside, so we weren't concerned. After we can use them outside, I will have to see if the wheels are scratched up and then they will not be used inside any longer. However, if you do not have solid, or have a softer wood like walnut, I probably would not let them be used indoors.
of course we use shoes with the skates. but they are very very wide. even when buckled and adjusted properly the shoes still move. why so wide? Dec 30, 2013
mine are wide as well, I'm guessing so they can accommodate all types of shoes. But when I tighten the skates, I actually bend the plastic edges somewhat so they create a narrower area. My daughter is in a size 7 toddler shoe and i can usually narrow the gap significantly to stop the majority of the sliding. I pinch the edges while I strap the velcro. It works for us.
Not likely. We have only allowed our daughter on the sidewalk but our street is textured and these skates may do ok as they are made well but for a child learning to skate they would not be very sturdy for them in a street. Hope this helps:-)
Yes. The wheels lock, so the child can essentially walk in them. It has options for a total lock, back wheels only, or all wheels unlocked.
Is this good for 15 months old Kid? My daughter is very fast in walking/running and I would like her to try skates at this early age. Any comments? 2 days ago
These skates could be. The wheels can be locked so your daughter can get used to the feel of standing/walking on them. Then they can be set to roll frontwards only, and finally, to a full roll. My grandson just turned 4 but is small for his age and he did fine. If the skates fit her feet, and she is a stable walker, she should be OK.
Are these a good gift idea for a four year old? As I see a lot of reviews for younger kids ages from like one to three. Feb 1, 2015
Depends on her shoes size my niece is 3 where's size 7 fits big
Does your local skating rink allow you to use these on their rink floors? We'd be going to a rink, not outside. Nov 3, 2014
I don't know, they look like they would be good for a rink.
There are three settings that you can switch between, which allow your child to go from walking to actual skating. The skates are pretty good. They are sturdy and easy to put on and take off. My daughter loves them.
