We have owned this great ride-on toy since my son (now 8) was about 2. From the first day he got it, he used it for hours on end, day after day, week after week. And every time we had visitors, the children all lined up to use my son's "rollercoaster". This toy has survived innumerable birthday parties, backyard BBQ's, playdates, and plain old everyday use. It has withstood the cold, wind, rain and sun in our Massachusetts back yard, with nary a crack or split in its sturdy plastic construction. And six years later, it is still the favorite outside toy for any and all visiting children who are able to ride its vehicle down the 10-foot coaster track.
Its gentle slope allows just enough momentum to build for the child to enjoy a little wind in his hair. The vehicle has a sturdy handle, convenient footrests, and a high back to prevent the child from falling backwards.
Although the age specifications are for children 2-5, I still see my 8 and 6 year olds and their friends sneaking a ride when they think no one is looking...this toy is just THAT much fun!
We have a pool, 2 playhouses, several bikes, a swingset and various other ride-on toys, but the rollercoaster remains the all-time favorite of every visitor under the age of 8. If you're looking for a durable outdoor toy that will be used for years to come, look no further. The rollercoaster is your answer!
