The Ybike Explorer 3 FIND IT HERE - we own a go kart and it has been one of the best things in our garage! It is a favorite amongst the boys and it is safe as long as you are clear about your expectations and make sure that you constantly supervise. Why I love it? I think it teaches your child to be responsible and independent.

Ripstick FIND IT HERE - the counterpart of skateboards. I love watching my oldest as he gains confidence, I think it is important that he tries things that are a challenge, I love the complexity of the ripstick. Why I love it? It is a challenge that will take time and practice, I think it is great for kids to do things that they might fail at, but if they stick with it, it will be a breeze!
