2nd prize is a $50 gift card to Pennypickle's workshop!

STACYC is the perfect choice for kids with little or no experience on a balance bike. Your child should have an inseam of 14” or more to adequately touch the ground with a slight bend in the knees for optimum sizing. Your child can learn to push, balance, and coast in the non-powered mode. Graduate them to the powered mode as they show proficient use and understanding of the brake and the ability to coast and brake while standing. Start them with a speed similar to what they can push the non-powered version at so they learn the use of the twist throttle. As they continue to develop skills, the medium speed of the STACYC allows for an exceptional amount of fun outdoors, getting hours of hand-eye coordination, balance, and outdoor exercise.

Professor Pennypickle loves to "Frankenstein" objects and convert them into some really fun creations... here is your chance to show him what you can dream up! Take an old Barbie or Ken size doll and turn it into a monster, a robot, or any other kind of crazy creature you can think of... the sky's the limit.


Top prize is a STACYC ebike valued at $799!

1.  This competition is for individuals or families  - families can all work together to make your creation.
