These skis for toddlers are well made and a good price, the seller dispatched them to me quickly. My 3 1/2 year old son loves playing on them in the house as much as he does in the snow. They are just a toy though and will not help you to teach your child to ski. Since you wear them with soft snow boots, there is no support and since the natural response for anyone learning to ski is to lean back your child will just fall on his/her back when you try to send them off down a hill. Rent proper skis with little boots or buy a set if teaching your kid to ski is your intent. As I said at the start, these are a well made, good value toy and I would recommend them; anything which introduces kids to the joy of sliding down a mountain has got to be a good thing.
