Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These were so simple to put on (3.5 year old). I thought they looked way too big and clunky in the box but they fit over her shoes pretty well and the sliding adjustments were secure, no slipping at all.

There's a little blue slide on the side of the skates that controls which setting you want the wheels at - locked, forward only or forward and backwards. We're at the forward-only stage and while it works really well, there's a metallic clinking sound, I'm assuming from the gear stopping the wheels from moving backwards, each time she lifts her foot. She's also caught herself on the toe stop a few times (but that can be blamed on some inherited klutziness).

Right now we're only using these indoors in the basement so they're not scuffing up much, but the wheels are a soft enough plastic that I can see them getting a little chewed up if they're used on a rough road or gravel. The tops wipe clean - the design on the front is in the plastic, not a decal.

Obviously these aren't as good as fitted skates but for learning coordination, these are nice and sturdy and hot Barbie pink!
