*ENDED* Skuut Bike Giveaway!

Training wheels, big boy bikes, Hot Wheels... and then there is Skuut ((skoot)). Skuut is a new kind of bike, just for kids, that involves no peddling, and allows your child to feel like a big kid on just 2 wheels. Skuut has a smaller range of motion than traditional bicycles, which keeps the rider from veering too far off course.

The Skuut bike is for ages 2-5, but even my youngest, who is only 16 months, has been able to enjoy it. The wooden middle can be placed right side up for traditional height, or upside down to accomodate smaller children. My oldest found this bike to be super fun, and he loves skuuting around inside the house! The construction is very sturdy, and the whole bike comes together with less than 5 minutes of assembly time.

We love our Skuut and hope that would will love it just as much! And to give you the chance to have one of your own Skuut is giving Grab Bag readers a chance to win one of their own!

The bike weighs about 10 lbs, and is well distributed, so it is easy to carry when your toddler tires out.

The Skuut comes fully assembled except for the handlebars and front wheel, which are easily attached. Instructions are provided. All you need is a screwdriver.

mastering the SKUUT allows kids to transition easily to a traditional bike!

gahome2mom said...

Kids learn balance and coordination while quickly gaining skills to transition to a regular bike - without fear and without clunky old training wheels. :) Thanks.

Children kick off the ground and scoot around with it, thus the name. What a neat item!

Barbara said...

What a wonderful giveaway (ending on my B-day...would be a great gift to give to my little one to celebrate)

I love that you can not only glide with it, but that you can skuut it, ride it and walk it. It looks very cool and sleak; something my little one would adore and wear out the wheels on!!!!

Please count me in (hopefully being the first commentator will bring me luck)!!!!

What an awesome bike! I just love it!
How do you stop it? Fred Flintstone style. You just use your feet. Thank you for this wonderful chance!

Maryann said...

The bike comes almost fully assembled. And I think it would be great for Matthew since he has vestibular (balance) issues because of his autism. mehmig at BTB

It helps kids learn to balance and ride a 2-wheeler. We had one of these on our wishlist for our son this winter. I've heard great things about them.

These are so neat! I love that the tires are made of pneumatic rubber.

Danielle said...

I like that it teaches balance a key to learning to ride a 2 wheeler. It is also only 10lbs, so it is easy to carry if it needs to be carried home from the park etc.

Aprilshowers said...

Looks like a great bike. It makes sense that this would help the transition to a traditional two wheeler bike

LN said...

It's called a Skuut because the child scoots by pushing his feet off the floor :) What a brilliant idea!

makeetis said...

Way less scary than a traditional two-wheeler (and less likely to produce scraped knees), the Skuut also teaches steering, coordination, and independence. brewerchickey78(at)yahoo.com

jenn said...

also helps transition to a traditional bike w/ pedals easier! very cool!!

jenn said...

PS said...

My daughter already "scoots" with her trike. She is not a pedal girl. Maybe this would help with the transition like they say it does.

It only weighs ten pounds (which makes it all the more perfect for us, since we'd be carrying it to the park for our little guy to ride).

The seat is adjustable so that it can grow with your child, or adjust to multiple children, if they can manage to share :-) lnjane at yahoo dot com

I definatley want this for Kayden! It is a great idea to learn how to balance without the nuisance of peddles and helps kids graduate to a 2 wheeled bike without training wheels at an earlier age!

cdziuba said...

OK, I think the coolest thing is that the bike is almost all the way assembled, very little work required when you get it home!

Katherine said...

I love that this bike is intuitive and is easy for kids to figure out very quickly.

Brian said...

I like that the child can choose to walk or glide as they're ready.

Alexia said...

The Skuut is actually able to coast for quite a few feet once kids have practiced. How neat!

Becca said...

My daughter is tall for her age, so I was glad to see that the seat is adjustable.

Do not leave or store the Skuut outside for long periods of time. Though it is protected by a lacquer veneer coating, it is still made of wood, and is susceptable to warping, rotting, etc from too much exposure to the elements

The seat is fully adjustable, which is a good thing. That means when my son finally grows out of it, I could pass it along to his younger cousin who is much shorter.

Staci said...

The skuut has won several awards, including The Toy Man Seal of Approval. Also, most kids are able to coast after a week or two of practice. Thanks for the chance to enter!

ladydi115 said...

The seat is adjustable for a range of children and the bike weighs only 10 lbs, so it's easy to carry. thanks!

Kelly said...

Wow! Cool! Something I would note is that seems to be smaller in size than you would imagine at first, if you're basing your conception on regular pedal bike; if you watch the video of the kids using it you can see it looks really small proportionally when you're used to seeing a pedal bike. At first I thought, geez, that's low, won't they drag their feet, but it's obviously designed that way to allow them to easily catch themselves, and they all easily tucked their feet up when they wanted to coast. :-)

Meg said...

There is no learning curve for most kids on this bike!

Thanks,
Megret

calabaza said...

I have been eyeing these! This is great for developing large motor skills and balance which is nessecary for many tasks, not just bike riding!

sdog said...

When first riding the Skuut a child will tilt from one side to the other and her feet stop her from tipping over like training wheels. Soon balance becomes second nature and she can ride for several yards with her feet off the ground.

It is called a Skutt because the child scoots it along with their feet

Easily adjustable seat- great - now I can do it before my husband gets home!
