Creativity for sidewalks, parking lots, and streets! Chalktrail® is so intuitive - kids see it and they get it. Adults get the urge to ride along, too.
Hook Chalktrail® to a bike in a heartbeat. Then get riding! Draw figure eights, wavy meandering paths, perfect circles, fascinating designs by retracing the same route again and again in succession. It’s freshly invigorating, beautiful play.
Create a masterpiece with a group of riders. Playing follow the leader becomes thoughtfully creative. No coaxing needed, everybody’s caught up in the fun of orchestrating gigantic Spirograph-like creations!
Need specifics? Here’s more.
What Size of Bicycle:
Bikes come in 6 different wheel sizes, (12 to 29 inch diameter). Chalktrail® fits Dad’s bike as well as it does little Sophie’s training wheels.
How Chalktrail® Connects:
A simple wishbone clamp connects the Chalktrail® device to center hubs of the back wheel. Insert chalk into another simple squeeze clamp at the other end of Chalktrail®. No need for parent help, no tools required. Safe and easy. Any kid can do it.
How Long Will the Chalk Last:
Need a breather? Go ahead and take one. You may wear out before your chalk does. Just one piece of chalk lasts 1.5 miles!
Chalktrail® for scooters - shown in the video - will be coming in early 2013!
Crazy-good fun. Miles of creative artistry. Wherever the rubber hits the road –
so does the chalk.
Bike riding and chalk creating - Miles of invigorating, colorful fun!
Designs evolve as one child rides solo or many kids cooperatively ride
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"Our son loved the colors and watching the cause and effect of trails being made where he rode his bike. Other kids in the neighborhood were interested in the trails and wanted to ride bikes with him to follow the trails he made, so it helped break down some of the social barriers my son has difficulty with. "
Bought this for my 4 year old son for Christmas. He loves it! The first time he used it, he was in awe. He went up and down the road leaving a trail that he would circle around and follow again. The kids in the neighborhood all love it too and will go grab their bikes to follow his trail. It took a little manipulating to get it at the right angle, but haven't had any problems since. The chalk has been nice and bright and haven't had any problems with it breaking. The whole piece is simple enough to put and remove from the bike. My son does have to be more gentle with going up and down ditches as this will chip the chalk. The only part that I think could use a little more work is the piece that holds the chalk in place. It can be difficult to change the angle (move it from one notch to another). However, this flaw is also a strength, because it is so durable and strong.
Review for Chalktrail®
Posted 10/14/2013 by KAMI CAPPELLO
My daughter tried to attach a rainbow rake (chalk toy) to her bike a year or so ago. This product is the solution. We love the chalktrail made specifically for fat brain toys. It is so much fun for all the little neighbor kids.
I purchased Chalktrail (red) for my 6 year old daughter. We easily attached it to her bike and she loved it! She zoomed up and down the sidewalk - very excited to see the trail that was forming behind her.
This is a well made product and easy to attach to any bike.
