1Unboxing with Flybar
If you've got kids, especially ones who love to be outdoors on your Christmas list this year there is literally no better place to shop than Flybar. From the daredevil to the trying tot, there is literally something to get every child (and adult) outside into the fresh air this holiday season!
Since the health benefits of being outside are all the rage, we know that rain or shine, sun or snow, we need more outdoor exercise and activity. With kids spending their weekdays stuck inside a classroom, the afternoons, evenings and weekends should be spent outdoors. Forget the tech and screens this year and give your kids a reason to WANT to go outside. This season with Flybar get outdoors and experience tons of fun and adventure all while learning and practicing gross motor skills, balance, coordination, and more!
Items we love include:
- The My First Flybar Pogo Pals is the perfect beginner pogo option for toddlers and young children. With a rectangular foam base, a stretchy cord, and soft foam handles, your younger child can get out with the big kids all while practicing his or her large motor skills, balance and coordination.
- Perfect for the gymnast or daredevil in your family, the Master Stilts are a wonderful gift for the child who loves trying new, seemingly difficult things. With a wide flat rubber foot, these adjustable stilts will let your child stand a head above the rest this season, literally!
- Every kid needs a kick scooter and the Aero Scooter by Flybar is a trendy, cool option with a back wheel heel brake and neon green wheels that light up as they speed around.
- Great for the experienced pogo-er, and even the beginning trickster, is the Pogo Trick Board. Different than a traditional pogo stick, this trick board requires practiced skill as your child must both grip the ball with their feet and bounce simultaneously.
- For whole family fun, the Swurfer is a must have this holiday season! Everyone loves to swing and this stand-up swing is both invigorating and enjoyable for the smallest to the biggest on your list this year.
- As with any outdoor adventure gear make sure to remember the helmets. Safety is always important with kids and Flybar knows this, so their helmet is durable, versatile, and comfy with a soft, padded interior for long-term use.

3Unboxing with pediped
If you have kids with feet that like to grow faster than they can wear out their shoes,
We love the flex sizing system that literally seems to grow with your child's feet. With this innovation in shoes, not only can you buy the shoes a 1/2 size larger, but the comfort your child feels now won't have to wait 2-3 months to fit correctly. Thankfully, your child will not only grow into their shoes, but they'll last much longer in style with little wear and tear, along with the size that's perfect for them.
