I love this swingset, but it really needs to have at least 12 inches of soft material underneath the fall zone and soft swings instead of hard ones to improve safety and lessen the chance of injury. My pet peeve is seeing swings on hard dirt or grass.

I just took the pedals off of my daughter's bike and she learned to balance and coast in about a week. And then we put the pedals on and off she rode into the sunset, without any troubles at all. This is def. the best way to learn how to ride a two wheeler!

We just took the pedals off of my daughter's (four year old) little huffy bike, but she still couldn't quite touch the ground for riding a balance bike. So then I went on Ebay and found a really small little old radio flyer with great flat wide tires which I won with a .99 cent bid (and then paid $20 in shipping for). We took the pedals off that, my daughter spent three days getting used to the balance and, after she could coast the whole way down the driveway we put the pedals back on and away she went with one little push. Easy Peasy. After a week of the little radio flyer, she's back on the blue bike with the pedals on... she likes the brakes better on that bike. So much easier than trying to just do training wheels... which is what my son did when he was ready to ride a two wheeler (years ago).

I own a home child care and use the flip and flush. It attaches to the toilet and flips down for use. Super convenient. I'd love a bamboo flip and flush. I don't like the kind that you take off and on because, where do you store it when it's not in use? Usually under or beside the toilet and it's just cleaner flipped up.

We have a real tree. Every Friday the day after Thanksgiving the whole family goes skiing into the forest to pick out a tree, we drink hot cocoa, eat candy canes, listen to christmas music, have a picnic lunch and make a day out of it. Love it, love the tradition of it, love the smell and all of it's imperfections. And, living in northwest corner of the Colorado Rockies... it fits with our life here. My Mom has an artificial tree and it makes me sad... (and, although she loves it, she does miss the smell).
When Christmas is over, we chip up the tree and use it for mulch.
