    We bought my 3 year old son a Skuut when he was turning two. They are AMAZING! He can now ride along with his older brother and sister while they ride their normal bikes. He barely puts a foot down and can balance around corners better than his six-year-old sister. In the beginning, he was able to ride it in the house. As a result, he could ride his “bike” year-round for the first year he had it. This gave him the practice needed to really be great at balancing by the time he was three. Now he goes way too fast for the house, but next summer, I expect to move him to a pedal bike without ever using training wheels. The Skuut is the best!

    I am a father of 3 year old triplets. Now, before I hear you gasp, let me tell you all that they are all a hoot.

    Case in point, when I come home from work at the Pentagon (I’m active duty military) I have to correctly guess that my one daughter, Natalie is pretending to be. Tail Wags Helmet Covers would quickly make this task a breeze to complete as I could effectively say “you’re a zebra” while dashing for the bathroom.

    My other daughter, Amelia is all about books. In fact, all she wants for Christmas this year are books about reindeer. (Note to self: get to that bookstore, now) The personalized story books would be a great treat for her and might inspire the other two to jump on the reading bandwagon.

    Then there’s Jacob. This little boy “lives to ride and rides to live” You should see his little legs pedal his undersized bicycle with training wheels. The Skuut wooden bike would take him to the next level and I think would prove to be a heirloom for him considering the quality and craftsmanship that is apparent in the design and details.

    Thanks to the for putting on this contest and I hope that your holidays are the best ever.

    What another great giveaway! Thanks for all the tips on buying toys for the holidays. I too am cutting back on what I am giving for the holidays and watching what I am buying. I actually pulled out the sewing machine and am sewing a few things this bean bags and a bean bag frog. Plus the BabyPlays website is such a clever idea! Thanks for the chance to win!
