Kids can fill the flower pot with bubble solution using the included watering can to watch the center of the flower blow bubbles or use the included leaf petal wands to blow bubbles manually.
From learning to ride to racing down the sidewalk, outdoor fun is just a pedal away with the Krate EVO kids bike by Schwinn. The Krate EVO blends classic style with modern technology for a ride that’s as iconic as it is comfortable. The steel frame features a double top tube and Sting-Ray-inspired shapes, while the SmartStart geometry offers kids a better fit for a more stable, confidence-boosting ride. The fully functional suspension fork, reimagined racing bucket-style saddle, and authentic Slik rear tire put a fresh twist on that classic 70’s Krate look. The single-speed drivetrain, rear coaster (pedal) brake, and removable skate-style training wheels make this bike simple and intuitive for young riders to use.

Pull down the hammer to prime the blaster, then press the trigger to send one dart flying toward the target. There's onboard 12-dart storage on the stock so kids can have backup darts within reach to reload and keep on playing. Includes 12 Official Nerf Elite foam darts that are tested and approved for performance and quality. Eyewear recommended (not included).
