About Islabikes

Islabikes are the children’s bicycle specialist! They are a company started by Isla Rowntree that produces bikes and only bikes. Her experience in bike design, custom building, and riding make her the perfect person to create a range of bikes that are simply perfect for the job. Because Islabike’s understands how flooded the marketplace is with attractive looking bikes, they had to set out to create something that far surpassed the competition. Their collection of bikes are not designed to be “toys”. Every bike is created with obsessive attention to practical detailing, ride-ability, and durability. They pay special attention to every little detail. Islabike incorporates age-specific frame design as well as proportionally downsized components, including brakes that can be easily and confidently operated with small hands. The gearing, crank lengths, and components are all chosen to be perfect for the age range of each bike. Islabike wants to ensure that they are offering consumers a high quality product that will stand the test of time and be loved by multiple children. Their collection of bikes ranges from a balance bike for ages 2 and up all the way up to amazing bikes for your pre- and young teens.

About Wishbone Design Studio

The journey of Wishbone Design Studio began in a cozy bathroom in New York City in 2005. As parents to two, Rich and Jen wanted to create something that would give their children a taste of the childhood they had. Memories full of long grass and fresh air where children played on their own. The days where you ran around and played until the dark set in. As a company, they strive to create designs that not only transform your experience but also reduce consumption and deliver a positive outcome for the environment. They were able to reduce consumption with their first creation of a bike that can take your child from age 1 all the way up to age 5. One of their mottos is (which Daily Mom stands firmly behind) “Maybe – just maybe – you’ll resist the temptation to ‘buy more stuff’ because what you’ve already got is great”. Because social, ethical and environmental sustainability is important to Wishbone Design in all aspects of their company, they strive to use raw materials whenever possible and pay close attention to where and how they manufacture.


This year, Wishbone Design Studio introduced a new product. Their 3-in-one wagon is every bit as amazing as their original 3-in-one bike. This is SO MUCH more than just a wagon! It’s a wagon, a foot-to-floor car and a go-cart all-in-one! Your little ones can use it for whatever their creative minds decide. To stand behind their testament to products that stand the test of time, this wagon is great for ages 1-10.

Gifts For Active Children: Holidays 2015 6 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

The wagon has a low center of gravity and air filled tires and is crafted of birch plywood with a lightweight aluminum handle. The steering wheel is fully functioning and there is a hinged hatch door for foot-to-floor fun. Children have three different options for the handle position. They can pull and steer from the front, push from the back or stow for downhill action.

This car, cart and wagon is sure to become a quick favorite for outdoor play.

Battery Powered Monster Truck Ride-On by Radio Flyer

Gifts For Active Children: Holidays 2015 12 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

About Radio Flyer

For 97 years, Radio Flyer has been an American Icon; creating and withholding the standard for quality, classic children’s toys. It all started when 16-year-old Antonio Pasin found his calling after traveling to America in search of a better life. After working several jobs over the years in Chicago, skilled craftsman Pasin eventually saved enough money in 1917 to rent his own one-room workshop where he hand-crafted wooden wagons at night and sold them during the day.

By 1923, Pasin had a handful of employees, and his new company “Liberty Coaster” sold their “No. 4 Liberty Coaster” wooden wagons directly to stores. This was the first of many historic wagons in Radio Flyer’s history. In 1930, Liberty Coaster began producing steel wagons and became “Radio Steel and Manufacturing”. They were the world’s largest producer of toy coaster wagons. Pasin named the first steel wagon the “Radio Flyer”.

Over the next few decades, Radio Flyer became a household name, producing war gear, gardening carts, racer cars, ski sleds, motocross bikes, outdoor lawn furniture, mountain trikes and much more – all the while, staying true to Pasin’s wish from the very beginning of his journey to “bring joy to every boy and every girl”. In 2003, Antonio Pasin became the 44th toy innovator to be inducted into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame.

Helmets by Nutcase

  Gifts For Active Children: Holidays 2015 18 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

About Nutcase

Who says that just because helmets are safe that they have to be boring? Nutcase certainly doesn’t! Presented to the world in the spring of 2006, this helmet company is anything but ordinary. Creator Michael spent 6 years perfecting and developing his idea. These helmets combine highly visual graphics with multi-purpose helmet designs that are both safe and popular among bicycle, skateboard, scooter and in-line skate enthusiasts. He knew that the marketplace could use an option that was both visually fun and expressive. Kids don’t always want to be bothered to put on their helmets, but with an “accessory” as fun and individualized as Nutcase that is hardly a problem.


Nutcase scales down their adult size helmets by taking all of the best features you love from their bike and skate helmets and making them into a great (and safe) option for little ones!

No need to worry when the sun is out. All of their helmets come with detachable visors to protect you from the sun and the rain.

Gifts For Active Children: Holidays 2015 22 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

About The Gorilla Gym

The company Gorilla Gym was started by two Boston-based entrepreneurs, Peter Velikin and Kiril Alexandrov, who were looking for a way to keep their children active while indoors. In turn they created the Gorilla Gym which is essentially an indoor “playground”. It began as just a door-mounted unit from which you would hang a swing and evolved into so much more. It is now a system with a wealth of options. The two eventually developed a number of attachments for boxing, yoga and other exercises — as well as additional indoor playground equipment such as trapezes, ropes and ladders. The Gorilla Gym has become a hit with families everywhere. After all, keeping kids active, healthy and happy even when they are stuck indoors is important.


The Gorilla Gym makes it simple to climb, swing, play and burn energy in your own home. Essentially, it brings the outdoors indoors and keeps your kids occupied and burning energy. To install this system there is no drilling, hammering, or holes. Simply, the Gorilla Gym attaches to your door frame in minutes similar to a home pull-up bar. It has a patented vise grip that adjusts to fit your door frame and adds a high level of security. These grips support swinging motions. And don’t worry, adults can enjoy it too because the Gorilla Gym can support up to 300 pounds. It will install in less than a minute and is portable, lightweight and fun.

Gifts For Active Children: Holidays 2015 23 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families
