Amazon and PerkStreet Bank to the rescue! Amazon is my "go to". I hate shopping. Amazon makes it easy, especially with Amazon Prime ($79/year gives you free 2-day shipping). PerkStreet Bank gives you 1%-2% cash back on non-pin debit card purchases. With our PerkStreet cash back, the skates cost a little over $1 and we had them in two days.
The moment they arrived Princess put them on and started skating around the house. Hurray for hardwood floors!!
The skates stayed on for hours and she would hang out on the couch wearing them while playing on her computer, then she would get up and skate again.
Sadly, I have no photos of her skating in them. Oh well, that will have to wait for another time.
