Don't Even Think Of It! Those Heelys are Mama's This Time

The weather was beautiful this week with a cold front on the way.  So, I figured it was the perfect time to try out my pair of Heelys.  Heelys sent me a pair in exchange for an honest review.  I will share my Heelys experience with you by writing 100% my opinion.  But, here's the one thing they asked - That I review them (not my kids).  They wanted me, an average stay at home, work at home, homeschooling mama to put on these wheels under my feet and tell them what I thought. 

 Could this mama really make a pair of Heelys sing?  Oh, imagine how I could zoom through my daily errands.  Maybe I could actually save enough time to have more snuggle time with my little one.  Imagine that I could actually stay one step ahead of my fast-moving kids.  The true test was upon me. 

Before I tell you how it went, I want to mention that Heelys is throwing a Black Friday special!! Between Nov 25-Nov 28, Buy any pair of Heelys, get the second pair for $25. Or buy a Nano, and get a pair of shoes for $25, and get free ground shipping on all orders!

I was very excited to receive my Heelys in the mail.  I was already familiar with this semi-roller skate shoe because my daughter had a pair.  However, I had never seen one with two wheels on each shoe.  The kind I reviewed were the X2 style.  I figured this would provide more stability a I set out to try them out.  You can see all the styles and learn more about Heelys in their helpful guide, complete with pictures.

If you have never experienced the Heely difference before, you'll want to check out their complete instruction guide and their safety guide booklet

Here's my experience with the Heelys:

My first attempt out on the path at our local park, I felt a bit like Bambi.  I needed Thumper standing by stating, "Looks a little wobbly, doesn't he?"  I could not figure out how to balance on them without holding onto something.  Thankfully, I had my daughter sitting in her stroller.  I grabbed the handlebar and began to walk behind the stroller, and then try the Heelys wheels.  It didn't take long before I leaned back on the wheels and began to roll.  I do think I could get the hang of them because after only a few short minutes, I was already zooming along pushing the stroller with my little one squealing "Whee, this is fun!" I continued till I reached a bench where I replaced the Heelys with my flip flops.  Funny thing was that once I took the Heelys off, I had gotten just enough hang of the feel of them that I wished I had kept them on to speed along back down the path.  I made this extremely unflattering video of the entire adventure.
