What's The Best Ice Skating Tip?
If you need a little extra glide, rent a plastic blue seal to give you balance and stability. Grab a super-cute seal so even the littlest skaters can have fun on the ice with the rest of the family, or make way for some competitive ice racing as speed skaters push their pals from one end of the rink to the other!
