Skuut Giveaway !

What is a Skuut ?
Skuut is an Eco-Friendly beginner wooden bike with no training wheels or pedals.

Who is it for ? The Skuut is designed for children ages 2- 5.

How does it work ?
Kids first walk the bike forward. As they go faster they stride with feet off the ground for longer and longer periods of time, ultimately being able to pull both feet off the ground and coast. At first they tilt to one side or the other and their feet catch them like training wheels . Very quickly balance becomes second nature and they can coast for yards with their feet off the ground.

The Goal : The goal is that they will be able to transition to a bike without ever using training wheels !

As a mom of boys that love to be outdoors that has bought more bikes than I can remember, I wish I would of had this Skuut for my older boys which are 9 & 13 now. I remember when I was trying to teach them how to ride their bikes without training wheels I would let go and keep saying petal...petal....petal. Of course I was terrified of them falling and hurting themselves. Now that we have the Skuut I hope that my 2 year old will go from the Skuut to a regular bike and skip the training wheel all together !

See the Skuut In Action !




If you are looking for a bike for your little one or gift for that special child in your life, you can not go wrong with the Shuut !

    Do not leave or store the Skuut outside for long periods of time. Though it is protected by a lacquer veneer coating, it is still made of wood, and is susceptable to warping, rotting, etc from too much exposure to the elements.

    The Skuut box ships with the picture of the bike on the outside

  175. cathleen nash said...

    This has probably been mentioned already, but I did in fact visit Skuut's site: The box comes shipped w/the picture visible (best to find it first before it spoils the surprise for the kids!). Also, Skuut is easily assembled w/ a screwdriver (I forget if it's Phillips or a flathead!)-front tire and handlebars. Thanks for the entry!

    The adjustable seat ranges from just over 13.5 inches to 16.5 inches high, fitting most 2-5 year olds - so so cute!!!1

    Skuut is partnered with Trees for the Future and ensures that one tree will be planted for every bike sold! Sounds like a great company! Thanks for the chance to win. My daughter would LOVE this!

    I like that it's adjustable so you child won't outgrow the bike.
