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.
My 7 yr old granddaughter has decorated her entire driveway with the Chalktrail and then drove across the street and did ours. When I returned from out of town there were pretty designs everywhere. Since it had been misting I was afraid the designs would be gone but they lasted through the mist. While her parents worried that maybe I had bought her permanent chalk (LOL) a good rain came and washed it all away. Now she's waiting for everything to dry up so she can design again. This present was a winner!
Easy to use but keeps falling off the bike. Chalk doesn't last long at all..Once around the block and the chalk was 1/2 gone. Overall my 5year old grandson was excited by it but disappointed because the chalk line was hardly visible on the sidewalk.
We contacted our customer promptly. When properly attached, chalk trails show visibly on the sidewalk and last 1.5 miles. Please note, the instructions are a fantastic reference, and describe how to achieve the correct fit. Contact us if the trailing action falls beyond your expectations. We'll help you adjust to achieve excellence
The device itself works well. But it only comes with one stick of chalk and that is used up *very* quickly. Thank goodness is ordered the pack of an extra four sticks to go along with the basic device. Otherwise it would have been a very disappointing gift for my 6 yr old granddaughter.
Information about Chalktrail®
Posted 3/24/2013 by Jaime Studer
I got the chalktrail for my seven year old daughter for her birthday as she rides her bike daily during the warm weather months. She was thrilled with the idea of the chalktrail and immediately made us install it on her bike. It worked well on smooth sidewalks, but not so much on our cracked and more bumpy street, so I can't give it a full five stars. However, we still think it's a great idea, and its ease of installation means our youngest daughter will be able to use it, too, on her little bike. I imagine we'll be getting a second one for her so that they both can have one for when we take rides on the paved trail by our house.
