New Rides from Radio Flyer

March 31st, 2010 posted by Family Corner Staff

Everyone remembers Radio Flyer, famous for their wonderful red wagons. If you never owned one, chances are you rode in one or pulled one at some point in your life! Well now, Radio Flyer has added to their arsenal of indestructible toys by rolling out the Scoot 2 Skate and the Smooth Rider, ridable toys ranging from age 3 through the tween years. The Scoot 2 Skate is ideal for younger children who are just learning how to ride a skateboard. There’s a removable handle that allows children (ages 3-8) to ride the skateboard like a scooter until they are ready to remove the handle and go it alone! For older kids, there’s the Smooth Rider, a retro-style scooter perfect for kids 9 and up, and it’s even strong enough to hold teens, and even a goofball dad if he dares!  Dominic, my 11 year old, easily glides down the street on the Smooth Rider and really enjoyed trying out this fun new scooter. Out of the box they were simple enough for my kids to put together on their own as well. The Smooth Rider has a folding feature, which came in quite handy when Dominic left it at a friend’s house and had to carry it home while riding his bike! These two new riders are definitely worth a look. More information below:
