Snow Sleds for Kids
here to see our selection of snow sleds
your children are looking for something to do this winter that will
get them out of the house, you may want to consider getting them
a snow sled. Sledding provides fun and exercise all day long. As
long as you can find a snow and a hill, there is nothing stopping
a snow day from being the best day all year. There are many types
of snow sleds available for kids, and you can find one to fit almost
any budget. Below is a list of some of the most popular sleds for
• Saucers—these are a cheap type of sled (although
it isn’t technically a sled) and works similarly. Children
can climb on these and slide down almost any hill and have fun for
many hours. These are much cheaper than any other type of sled or
toboggan and are very lightweight for carrying.
• Plastic Toboggans—these are available in just a basic
form, or more expensive versions. The more expensive types of toboggans
can even have a steering wheel for more control over it while sledding.
• Traditional Sleds—these are basically a toboggan with
runners underneath. These are available in plastic versions or wooden.
• Toboggans—these are sleds without runners, and you
can find wooden versions or plastic (see above for different types).
• Luges—these are a type of sled that usually cause
children to have to lie back while sledding. These are often best
for older children.
• Catamaran—these are a type of sled or toboggan that
has a seat in the middle of two runners. The seat is made of trampoline-like
material and has a springy manner that allows much bouncing while
sledding, which many kids enjoy.
There are also many other types of sleds available for kids, and
there are a couple of important factors that should be considered
when choosing one for your child. Since every kid is different,
and every sledding experience is different, you will want to choose
based on your child’s preferences and concerns. Some important
factors to consider are how much control your child will have over
steering, how heavy the sled is when it will need to be carried
back up the hill, as well as any weight limits and how many children
can ride it at a time.
You can find children’s opinions of various types of sleds
for kids by visiting www.zillions.org. This site has children test
particular sleds and they voice their opinions about how much fun
they had, how heavy it seemed, how fast it went, as well as how
much control they had while steering. Hearing the opinions of other
children can often help you make a decision without having to test
them out on your own kids, potentially wasting money or risking
Wintertime often brings with it boredom and sadness due to being
stuck in the house while the weather is dreary and cold.
When sledding, it is important to have the proper location.
When the snow falls, the first thought for many parents and children
is to break out the sleds.
