Do you offer a "Skate Aid"?

Yes! We have "Tommy" and "Bobby" skate aids for use. A Bobby is a seal-shaped skate aid, like a mini-shopping cart or stroller. A child or adult can push it in front of them to help them balance. A small child can also sit on the front of the Bobby while the adult pushes the Bobby. A Tommy is a reindeer-shaped skate aid that can be pushed.
