Got these for the kids (4 and 2 years old) to introduce to the feel of skis. Put them on the kids to walk around the carpet and house to get the feel of skis. These ski are a good intro and will help to avoid trying to introduce skis at a resort. Get skis on the kids at home first so they will be ready when we go to the lifts with the real thing.

This are great skiis for kids from age 2-1/2 to 4 or so. They are great for my 3 year old. They are probably not suitable for a child older than 5 unless they are tiny, but they are light and well-made. As others mentioned, the bindings are not as easy to adjust as they should be, but seem functional.

After a great deal of research and numerous visits to ski swaps and sport shops, we ordered this pair for our 2 year old daughter and are very pleased with the purchase so far. My husband, a former ski instructor, insists on letting her become familiar with the sensation of skiing as soon as possible. She walks and runs well, so he thought it was time to put her on skis. This will be great for her first winter of snow sporting - mostly at the park and in the yard. We won't be taking these up the lifts, as they don't meet release regulations. However, we will likely be using the magic carpet on our local ski hill's bunny slope. As long as she's on a "leash," we will have a qualifying release for that. The skis fit nicely on her Sorel snow boots and have a very attractive design. For the life of me, I don't know what we'll use the poles for - she probably won't use poles for a few years, at least. Next year I think we'll move up to real bindings, but for now, these are great!
