It has always been very important to my husband and I that our children play outside as much as possible. I think it is important for children to be active and enjoy the outdoors. I was outside as much as possible when I was a child and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. These days there is a lot of competition for playing outside with video games and television shows and many other media items. It is often hard to find new ways to get my children to go outside and be active. Radio Flyer recently sent us their new ride on toy the Ziggle. This is a new fabulous fun toy that my kids love to go outside and ride.
There has never been a more fun way to ride than with the NEW Radio Flyer Ziggle. All you do is twist the front and wiggle the back and off you go. Advanced riders gain speed and can drift into 360 spins. Four high performance caster wheels provide a smooth ride on any surface.
Recommended for ages 3-8 all three of my older children are able to ride and share this toy. It has an adjustable seat which I set farther back so it was more appropriately sized for my 4 and 6 year old, but my 2 1/2 year old was able to sit on it too and reach the foot rests, but not yet able to make it move. The older two love riding it. I will say they are obviously not advanced riders yet as they haven’t managed to do any 360 degree spin outs, but I am sure they will figure that out soon enough. Oddly enough, both of my older two asked me how to make it back up. I think it is a little hard to back up and turn and that is why they asked.
- Four caster wheels for a fun, fast ride
- 360 degree spin out action
- Adjustable seat grows with your child
- Grip tape for feet provide added control
- Padded hand grips for comfort
- Solid steel frame
- Weight Capacity 81 lbs
I really do appreciate that this will grow with my children and that they are all able to use it now even at different sizes. Most ride on toys are outgrown so quickly. The adjustable seat is held in by 4 bolts which need to be taken out and screwed back in to move the seat. A little time consuming, but worth it for the longevity of the toy.
A couple of days ago Danica and Kurtis were having fun seeing how fast they could go down our sidewalk. One would ride the Ziggle while the other ran beside to see who could go faster. It was cute and their smiles were huge and infectious!
The Ziggle is nice and lightweight at only 11.4 lbs which I think will make it very easy to take along with us places such as trips to Grandma’s or Auntie’s houses. It is also so easy to store as it doesn’t take up much space. My kids all love it and I am sure it will get many years of use.
I have a Radio Flyer Ziggle to give away to one lucky reader!
