Heelys…They’re not just for kids! Yes…I, a mother of 2, just received my first pair of Heelys (I’m a kid…well, I act like a kid sometimes). I have always loved skating, both regular and inline skates, so testing out the new Hx2 didn’t seem like it was going to be very difficult for me. The new HX2 comes with 2 removable wheels in each shoe, allowing this mom to get up and roll smoothly on my first try.
Before I could test out the HX2, I had to attach the wheels. It was very simple to pop out the plug and snap in the wheels. NOTE: Make sure the wheels snap in, otherwise you have an accident waiting to happen! You will hear a “click” and then you are good to go!
I decided to be safe and practice in the kitchen. It has been over 10 years since I have attempted to roller skate… and I don’t own protective gear at this time.
I think the hardest part about getting used to the Heelys is leaning back on my heels. I was able to glide across the kitchen floor with ease, but out of habit I would lean forward and STOP. It may take a little more time for me to really get the hang of it, but totally fun and entertaining. I told my husband I should wear these the next time we go to Vons… I would be the fastest mom in the store!
These would be a great gift for that adventurist in your family!
