The Skuut™ Now Available at Specialty Retailers Worldwide
Award-Winning, Wooden Bicycle Turns Preschoolers into Easy Riders The Skuut™

SAN FRANCISCO (February 12, 2008) – Kids can walk it, ride it or glide it. But they will all want to Skuut it! The Skuut, a European-style wooden bicycle is now available in specialty stores across the country. Toddlers to preschool ages can Skuut along on the pedal-less bike to learn key developmental skills needed to learn to ride a bicycle with pedals – and without training wheels. The Skuut is recommended for ages two – five and retails for $89.99.

Who can forget the simple joy of learning to ride their first bicycle? The Skuut combines the European tradition of wooden bicycles with a modern and surprisingly ingenious design: unlike a conventional bicycle, the Skuut does not have pedals. Children as young as two-years-old who are just learning to "scoot" on trikes can ride the wooden framed bicycle using their sturdy and growing legs. In a world of electronic toys, the Skuut helps these aspiring cyclists stay active and gain a little independence along the way.

"My own children learned how to ride a bicycle without training wheels by starting out on the Skuut," said founder and dad, Peter Emblad. "It is also great for Skuuting around town with your toddler and more fun than just walking or pushing your child in a stroller."

The Skuut will remind adults of the toys that they played with when they were young. The Skuut is a hand-made wooden toy with the durability of a metal bicycle. It is made out of Birch and Basswood and coated with weatherproof enamel. The tires are made of rubber, treaded for maximum traction and inflate to 25psi. The saddle can be raised or lowered to precisely fit individual children and grow with them. The Skuut weighs 11 pounds.
