I grew up learning how to bike by using a tricycle, and then a bike with training wheels. I vividly remember the moment I first felt what it was like to balance on two wheels, on my own. By the time I had learned to balance without any aids, I was six or seven years old. But now, a few companies, such as Burley, are changing the way kids learn to bike.
Travel with a toddler can create enough stresses on its own. We found our last trip was made easier by adjusting our travel style and bringing along items that alleviated the draining effects of caring for a busy little toddler while away from home. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but it definitely highlights our favourite items.
The holiday season is fast approaching, and with that comes my annual tradition of providing you with some gift ideas for the outdoorsy and adventurous parents in your life! By helping them get outdoors with their little ones, you are helping them fulfill their own passions. From experience, the value of that goes far beyond the gift itself.
With that, here are 7 (more) gift ideas for you!
There are some products you don’t even know you’ll need until you go through the process of trying a million others, only to realize that none of them do the trick. Thankfully, Suzanne from MyMayu, a North Vancouver-based company, intervened before I had the chance to see my toddler fall flat on her face thanks to loose and clunky rubber boots. I didn’t need to see it happen to know that it was possible. Suzanne sent a pair of MyMayu Muddy Munchkin boots ($48.95 USD) and liners ($16.95 USD) in the mail for Maya to try, and right away I saw their potential as the perfect play boot for rainy, muddy days.
We’re giving away a pair on adventurousparents.com (Canada only).
