5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and clever invention, October 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me 1,2,3 Roller Skates (Toy)
These skates are fun and clever; kudos to whoever invented the mechanism that allows you to change settings between no wheels rolling (walking mode), forward only (toddler can push forward and not risk one foot rolling away behind them), or forward and backward rolling (normal skating).

These are excellent skates for puttering around the apartment. Our son is not quite 4 yet, so he wears the skates over a pair of socks and shoes to get a snug fit. If they are being used on a hard surface like hardwood floor or parking lot, I'd recommend helmet, knee and elbow pads. Puttering around on the carpet is actually doable in these skates. You should let your child try to skate without holding onto you though, so their hands and arms are free to move around and help them keep balance- my son seemed more likely to fall while he was holding onto my arm than when he was just holding his arms out for balance. You will want to stay close to spot/catch your child if they slip an odd way on a slippery floor or stumble otherwise (it takes a bit of leg muscle/control to keep feet moving in the same direction when the skate wheels are fully unlocked), but the skates are generally sound.

He can also put them on and off by himself which is a plus for convenience and confidence.

Excellent beginner skates for small children to get comfortable moving around on skates. I'm not sure I'd bring my child out to a skating rink on these- too much traffic, but good around the house.
