Kick Flipper ~ Holiday Gift Idea
My two younger boys have always wanted a skateboard. However at 6 & 9 I am not quite ready for that. Especially the 9 year old since he’s a little magnet for injuries.
Recently I was introduced to the PlaSmart Kick Flipper, which is essentially a skateboard without wheels! It’s designed to help kids develop balance and coordination and is targeted at kids age 5 to teen. Kick Flipper can be used on carpet, grass, or pretty much any smooth surface. Because of this my boys can safely use it both in or outside.
The Kick Flipper is great for my boys to practice basic skills like balance, footwork, and coordination. All of those are essential for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfboarding. This toy isn’t meant to ride like a skateboard, but more for learning and doing tricks.
I think the Kick Flipper is the perfect way for kids that don’t already know how to skateboard to safely test out tricks. It is lightweight, and can be taken anywhere easily. My boys take it everywhere! Since it supports up to 200 lbs, even my husband has given it a go and loves it! Plus you can find lots of great tips & tricks on the Kick Flipper website.
The Kick Flipper is available on Amazon in both red and Blue. I think this is a great toy that keeps my boys busy and moving. It gives them the ability to pretend they are skateboarding, all while being safe. A big plus is that it’s small, lightweight and easy to store. If you have a sports crazy kid on your holiday shopping list, this is a great gift for them.
Like a skateboard without wheels, Kick Flipper is an excellent way to learn the balance, footwork, and coordination basics that are essential for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing. Boys and girls ages 5 and up will have fun perfecting beginner and advanced tricks. Fun and creative way to exercise. And, because Kick Flipper can be used on carpet, grass, or sand, beginners can safely learn techniques in their own homes and yards. Made in the U.S., Kick Flippers are cool looking, lightweight enough to slip into a backpack to take to school, the park, or the beach, and rugged enough to support up to 200 lbs. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
