It's that time of year again! The time when your kids start making their lists for Santa and you start scrambling to find the perfect gifts for them. If you're stuck on what to get your kiddos this year, might we suggest roller skates? Here are 10 flawless arguments why roller skates will make the best Christmas gift for your child.
Your child will make memories that last forever
There’s a roller skate to suit all ages, personality types and skating styles
At Crazy Skates, we know a thing or two about roller skates. We understand that every child is different - in their ability levels, personality, and skating style.
Here’s a bit of a breakdown of the different types of skates we have - and the style of skating they are best suited for.
- Sneaker style skates, which are perfect for beginners looking to transition from regular shoes to ‘shoes on wheels’. These are ideal for younger learners.
- Classic high-cut boots that are designed specifically for artistic skating and dancing on skates. Little girls love these as they are what the figure skaters wear.
- Low-cut boots built for speed and agility, making them the ideal choice for speed skating. If your child feels the need for speed, you can’t go past our selection of Crazy low-cut speed skates.
- Size adjustable quad skates that can adapt to fit kids up to four (4) shoe sizes, so they'll fit for longer than fixed size skates. These are perfect for children going through rapid growth spurts - you won’t have to continually buy new skates every time their foot gets bigger.
- Klip-klop skates - these skates have been meticulously designed to provide the easiest learning experience for young skaters. The wheels are placed beside the skate instead of underneath it, so your little learner is lower to the ground and far more stable than on traditional skates.
Our expert customer service team will be happy to help you decide exactly what type of roller skates will be the best for your child - no matter where they are on their skating journey.
Many of our skates are size adjustable so they make the perfect surprise gift
For all the aunties, uncles and others out there that want to buy their special little person a SURPRISE pair of roller skates for Christmas this year - but have NO IDEA what size their kid’s feet are - we’ve got you covered. At Crazy Skates, we have a huge selection of size adjustable roller skates that can be easily customized using a simple lever. This lever allows you to adjust the length of the skate up to four shoe sizes - so you really can’t go wrong. Our size adjustable skates will last for many years as they are made from quality, durable materials that will ‘grow’ with the child as their feet get bigger.
Roller skating is a great family activity
When it comes to family bonding, few activities match the appeal of roller skating. Whether you're reliving your childhood on the roller rink floor, or cheering your kids on from the side lines, skating is a great way to bring people together and create lasting memories. Research shows that active participation in sports, like roller skating, has many positive benefits for both kids and adults. It strengthens family bonds, boosts self-esteem and confidence, and creates unique opportunities for fun, shared experiences. So, if you're looking for an activity your whole family can enjoy, roller skating is an unbeatable choice.
Skating is a great way for your child to get some exercise
It’s not always easy to encourage your child to give up their screen time and go outside for some fresh air and exercise. But if you give your child a pair of roller skates this Christmas, they will be begging YOU to let them hit the pavement with their mates. When it comes to keeping fit, there's no doubt that roller skating is one of the best exercises. Roller skating actually involves working every muscle in your core in order to maintain balance and control, making it an incredibly effective way to tone and strengthen your body. Best of all, it's low-impact in nature so it's an activity that's relatively easy on the joints.
Provides opportunities for social interaction with friends
Roller skating is like no other sport out there - skating is all about having fun and connecting with friends. It allows kids to skate together with their buddies - or make new friends. Skating is a great way for kids to stay engaged and active while forming lasting bonds with others. It doesn’t matter if your child is an experienced skater, or just a learner, they will have fun mastering new tricks with their friends, or their family, when they roller skate. So, give your child some good, old fashioned fun this Christmas by getting them into their very own pair of roller skates.
Improves balance and coordination
Roller skating provides a fun and challenging way for young people to engage all of the muscles in their legs, hips and core - making it ideal for building strength, flexibility and agility. It also encourages kids to develop a sense of rhythm and spatial awareness, which helps them to improve their coordination. By challenging themselves to attempt increasingly difficult moves and maneuvers, they will use their muscles in different ways than they usually would, which helps increase their strength and improve their balance. Since children can learn at their own pace, roller skating is an ideal activity for both beginners and more experienced skaters.
Skating builds confidence
By getting your child into a pair of roller skates this Christmas, you are giving them a whole bucket load of opportunities to build confidence. It doesn’t matter if they are just learning to skate - or whether they're learning to skate backwards - as they rise to new challenges, their confidence will grow right along with their skills. Roller skating gives kids a boost in their self-esteem and encourages them to break out of their comfort zone and take on even more difficult challenges. This skill is one that will carry over into many other areas of their lives and could just be the key to unlocking a lifetime of success.
It’s affordable - kids can skate pretty much anywhere, anytime!
Roller skating is a lifetime hobby
It’s a bit like learning to ride a bicycle - once your child starts roller skating, they’ll enjoy it for many years to come. Skating takes practice and patience to master, but once they get the hang of it, they’ll be hooked for life. Roller skating offers the perfect combination of excitement and freedom, allowing children to whiz around at top speed while exploring new places and having adventures. Then, as your kids mature into adulthood and start families of their own, they’ll be able to bond with their own children over a shared love of roller skating.
There’s no doubt - roller skates really are the best Christmas gift. By having a pair of quality roller skates underneath your Christmas tree, you are not just giving your kid a toy, you are providing them with endless opportunities to make memories, stay active, and interact with their friends.
You’re giving them moments for family bonding, and teaching them important coordination and balance skills. Most importantly, roller skating is something they can enjoy for the rest of their lives - it's an affordable hobby that will always bring them joy.
So this holiday season, give your child a present that will truly light up their life - roller skates from Crazy Skates.
