Last Minute Gift Ideas #5 - Gyrowheel
I am not the target audience for this - I know how to ride a bike, and I don't have kids who are learning to ride. But man it is still cool and looks like fun to play with and see a kid use. It is a wheel with a gyroscope inside. You replace your child's front wheel and with the gyroscope turning their bike becomes incredibly stable. They learn to ride without the aid of training wheels. Just one of the many things that I wish existed when I was a kid. I know, you will miss out on video taping all the fun crashes that your child will have and that you will be able to laugh at for years to come...but on the bright side, you probably won't have to make them wear a 'tard helmet for at least a couple years till they start the danger stunts. Extra bonus - gets your kid out of the house for a while so that mommy and daddy can have grownup, super happy, fun time. I can't believe they don't put that in the bullet point features...what are you supposed to watch your kid the WHOLE time? They will have to learn that they are on their own in this world sometime - might as well start them young.
