Chalktrail Lets Kids Make Sidewalk Graffiti with Their Bikes

by Paul Strauss

Kids love to draw and paint on things. Sometimes they make a mess of your walls, tables and floors, but one place that’s just fine for childhood creativity is the sidewalk – assuming they use chalk for their artwork, not spray paint. Now, kids can make drawings on the sidewalk while riding their bikes.


The Chalktrail is a nifty invention which connects securely onto the back wheel of a bicycle, lowering a fat piece of chalk over the ground, so each and every move of the bike is sketched out onto the sidewalk or street. The chalk holde actually fits bikes with wheels from 12 to 29 inches in diameter, so kids and adults can play with it.


A single piece of chalk will last for 1.5 miles of riding, and tight and repeating turns on the blacktop will result in some pretty cool Spirograph-like designs.


You can buy the Chalktrail over at Fat Brain Toys for $19.95(USD) including a single piece of non-toxic, washable chalk, or for $26.90 with a refill of 4 extra chalk pieces. In 2013, a special version of the Chalktrail is coming for scooters (as shown in the video below).

    Very creative new product. I wonder if in the long run that we are confusing kids about appropriate activities and graffiti vandalism. Graffiti is marking up the property of others without permission. Who has a driveway that large? Won’t kids be marking up public streets and sidewalks, a bad habit to get in to. Ping me at http://www.DefacingAmerica.com if I’ve missed something.
