Kids have it so much easier these days than when I was little! Yes, just saying that out-loud (well, in my head, I don’t really talk to myself when blogging…much) makes me feel like I’ve aged a tiny bit more, but it’s true! When I was younger, if I wanted my bicycle to sound all loud and stuff, I had to use playing cards. To be honest, I really don’t recall doing that all too often, mostly because I was prone to losing things, and playing cards are not exactly the sturdiest objects. Nowadays (again, feeling older by the second here!), kids don’t really need to worry about losing their noise-making playing cards or getting them all bent out of shape. They can just slap a Kool Rider on their wheels and they instantly have a super-loud bike!
The Kool Rider is really easy to install. Just pick your sticker from the three different options (including one suitable for girls), wrap the velcro around the front bar thingy attached to the wheel (I don’t know the technical term for it, sorry!), and clip the Kool Rider over the velcro so that the flaps are hitting the spokes on the wheel. It took less than a minute to put it on Jake’s bike.
Unfortunately, we had to take it off his bike pretty quick because it didn’t fit right. It’s not the Kool Rider’s fault though, I didn’t realize that it wasn’t designed for his type of bike (a beginner’s bike). He did have a chance to try it out and it does make a lot of awesome noise! We’re putting it aside for when he gets a more mature bike. If you want to see it in action, check out the video below.
Summer is the perfect time for riding a bike, and it’s really great exercise for the whole family. The Kool Rider definitely adds a little extra fun and excitement to the activity. It’s made in the US, and assembled by developmentally disabled adults, which I think is really great. It retails for $9.95, but you can enter to win one right here.
