Skitter Toys Review and Giveaway!

Over the last six months you've read many reviews of useful and fun products, toys, clothing, and accessories. You've met some companies that are new to the market and have recognized some more familiar companies. Even though I get the opportunity to review amazing products, I would have to say the most rewarding thing I love about my job is the people that I meet behind the companies I work with. One of the companies that I've had the pleasure to work with in the past was Three Peas Company. The woman behind Three Peas Co. is an amazing mother, friend and colleague, and I am so happy that I get to work with Antoinette again while introducing you all to one of my favorite childrens toys of all time- The Skitter!

Most of the products we receive are cute girly little things that Abbigaile just adores. Alex loves getting mail, and a goal of mine is to find more products that he would love to review. We were super surprised when we received our pettiskirt to review, we also got a HUGE box with a SKITTER in it for Alex! Oh. My. Gosh! He couldn't get it out of the box fast enough! From the minute it was out of the plastic, he was skittering down the driveway and street non-stop!

A Skitter is a self-propelled, eco-friendly ride on toy. Because it's self propelled, it has helped my son with his balance, coordination and problem solving skills. Skitters are made with recycled plastics that are extremely durable and in bold, fun colors! The weight limit is very high (I need to double check it in the morning, but I think its 130lbs!), which means that even big kids can enjoy the Skitter, or that this is one toy that will grow with your child! This truly is a timeless toy, and a great investment for your children's happiness!

We've had our Skitter for about three months now, and I can honestly say that this is the ONLY outdoor toy that my kids play with every time we're outside. And they fight over it too, because now Abbie learned how to ride it! They absolutely love it! Despite the fact that it's being used all the time, the Skitter still looks brand new! Their friends come over and want to play on it, because they think it's the coolest thing ever, and their parents and I reminisce about the old fashioned scooter cars that we used to play with in gym class. My kids could seriously play on this thing for hours and not get bored, unlike many other ride on or outside toys. Alex loves to see how far he can get after riding down the slope of our driveway before twisting and the fact that his muscles get stronger every time he uses it and Abbie loves to just scoot-and-go!

I can genuinely say that this is by far the BEST toy we've ever received for our children, and I highly recommend this product to anyone who has children or grandchildren!

My kiddies would LOVE a Skitter! We spend so much time outside. The age difference in my children is rather large. Johnny is 9 and Paige is 21 months, but the Skitter is a toy they both would be able to play with!

I would choose the Red Skitter. Thanks for the chance!

I like the red skitter and if we won my son would hopefully spend more time outside. He has a hard time riding a bike and hates that he can't ride along with his friends but I'm sure the skitter would be a fav on the block

My daughter would love riding the Skitter. She's too young for a bicycle without training wheels. She would still be able to ride outside with her brother.
I like the Green Skitter.
