Great fun using gross motor skills. J has been asking for some skates since he saw them on TV couple weeks ago. So I was out the other day and went in this Thrift store by us that get all kinds of GREAT things and found these skates still in the package brand new for $6.90 SOLD. I was so happy. Even though he was asking for them wasn't too sure he was going to like them. Well have to say they were a hit. Love having wood floors cause the kids can still have fun when it is Winter or yucky outside. Nothing a mop and vacuum can clean.
