Indoor Carpet Skating at Home
Most of us knows the fun you can have with a pair of socks and a freshly mopped wood floor, right? You might miss out on this right of passage if you have mostly carpeted floors, until now. Let me tell you all about indoor carpet skating at home. Oh yeah, year round fun no matter the season!
Just like socks on a hardwood floor FunSlides give you that same fun-powered-glide on carpet. When an indoor activity is needed, children will forget about the rainy day and strap on these cool new skates to participate in the newest carpet craze| Simply strap the friction-resistant plastic bases over your athletic shoes and go. The toe grips make it easy to push off and safe to walk in. One size fits all so adults can get on the action too. Use the carpet puck for indoor street hockey tourneys.
When the weather is bad outside or the sun has set for the day, the kids still need to burn off some energy, right? Obviously they aren’t allowed to roller skate inside, but what about indoor carpet skating? It’s the same idea as using socks on a hardwood floor; these plastic carpet skates get strapped on to your feet (over your shoes) and you slide over the carpet’s surface!
Don’t worry, they have straps to help stay on your feet. Plus, the area under the toes is grooved to help you start and stop. Boy, once the kids got used to sliding on the carpet, they looked like they were ice skating! They are a decent size so they fit even the adult’s feet if we are feeling goofy.
With the indoor carpet skating FunSlides, the kids have races all over the house, dance parties, and even do tricks as long as they are careful. As long as there is carpet covering a surface, the kids are skating all over it. Obviously the larger the area with no furniture or other obstacles, the better the kids enjoy them. We’ve even taken them with us for sleepovers at the church or to the babysitter’s house to use in the finished basement.
The package suggests you start by walking slowly then progress into pushing off with your toes as you would with socks on a bare floor. And that’s it! Soon, you’re pushing off and gliding over the carpet like you’re on skates. These are super light weight and easy to take with you. These would make great gifts for kids or brave adults.
