As you may have guessed, they're sort of like ice skates. But instead of ice, Junior gets to slide around your home on the carpet. Carpet Skates slip over your foot and also fasten behind the heel for a secure fit. Then you push off with the toe grips and off you go! You may not want to let Grandma on them because, just like traditional ice skates, they take some practice to master. But before too long, you'll have a troop of carpet Tanya Hardings sliding past your Wedgewood Plates and Limoge Figurines. Yep, the kids will have a blast even if you're a nervous wreck! Oh yeah - and did we mention they're One-Size-Fits-All And come in a slick black and silver color... Awesome!
