Juliet has never tried ice skating before so when Kamik invited us to a media event at Chelsea Piers involving complimentary ice skating and family fun, we HAD to go! Juliet loves ice given her obsession with Elsa and the movie Frozen. And it is with Elsa in mind that she boldly tried out her skate rentals without fear or hesitation.
Balancing on skates with a toddler in tow was a balancing act for sure! Though it was a workout ensuring neither of us broke a leg, I was simply overjoyed to see Juliet braving the ice and taking her first baby steps all over again. I must admit though that it took us over a half hour to walk over to the ice and skate one circle around the perimeter. Luckily there was delicious hot chocolate awaiting us as an award hard earned. Thank you Kamik for ensuring our first ice skating adventure was full of fun and kid-friendly activities!
We made it!
After the round of ice skating (where thankfully, Juliet neither wiped out nor cried…you never know how things will be with a toddler), Kamik invited us into a private room where arts and crafts, food, raffles and the aforementioned hot chocolate awaited us. Friends of course made the experience even more memorable!
We were encouraged to #stepoutside with our newly gifted Kamik boots and pose for photos near the Hudson River and Jersey shoreline.
Juliet and I were so thankful to receive our brand new boots. They were SO comfortable and warm! And with NYC winters being as slushy and cold as they usually are, we expect to get tons of great use out of these! Even daddy (not pictured) got a pair!
Inside, we were surprised to find how enthralled the kids were with the Kamik mannequins. Juliet especially, seemed to have started some sort of strange love affair with the boy in the green coat haha
She spent a good 10 minutes here at this display booth interacting with her newfound friend, holding his hand, caressing his coat and offering lots of hugs! It was hilarious to watch! To her, the brand (and this boy) were irresistible!
And her affection didn’t stop there. When we won the Instagram contest, she happily ran over to meet and greet Otis, a giant otter and Kamik’s adorable mascot. Here she is plopping a big juicy kiss on his nose.
I highly recommend Kamik for their durable craftsmanship, weatherproof materials, and stylish options for the whole family. Get stocked up ‘cuz as they say in Game of Thrones, “winter is coming!”
We were gifted product in exchange for the review but as always all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
