Sliding with the kids can be quite different depending on the sled you choose. Whether you are cautious or reckless, here are some models for everyone.
There are two kinds of baby sleds, wooden sleds and plastic sleds. Both types slide well and there are accessories for both wooden sleds and plastic sleds. Whether you buy one or the other, you can get covers and cushions so that baby is comfortable and warm.
These types of foam sleds are very effective for young children. They are easy to hold during the descent, light when going up the slope and their colorful patterns make them even more attractive. It is a very good choice for preschoolers.
Sledge Carpets or Crazy Carpets
These sledding mats only cost a few dollars and are widely available. It is a good option for those who want to slip without notice and to bring to school, if the management allows it.
These sleds have the advantage of seating two people and being very solid. Unless your kids are sliding through rocky places, this sled should last you many years. They also have a cord to pull the kids and brakes, which can help them in small slips. You still have to teach children to brake properly with their feet because these brakes are not effective in ice.
Ask fun-loving parents, they'll tell you about the three-skis of their childhood. These sleds go fast, they're easy to steer, the kids are comfortable in them, and they're relatively easy to transport if you choose one that's light enough.
Toboggans, commonly known as toboggans, have stood the test of time. In addition to seating almost the whole family, they are now equipped with a small cushioned mat. You can buy it new or search the classifieds and yard sales for equally good ones at a better price.
The saucers give you very little control, but you can ride them with the kids and learn to change direction with your feet. It's an economical (about $10) and really fun way to slide with others.
A bit like the threeskis, this toboggan goes very fast. There are several colors and they are numbered, which gives you a perfect excuse to organize small races!
You don't have to go to a ski resort to rent a comfortable, fast-going tripe. You can also get a snow tube with the image of a superhero, an imaginary character or even a double tube for 2 children: you'll be spoiled for choice! Bumps look so much funnier when they bounce us off a cushion!
If you are looking for an exceptional gift that your children will keep for a long time, made with the wood of the emblematic tree of each species of the Canadian provinces, it is Jocelyn Legault who makes what you need. Its magnificent sleds allow you to slide standing behind two young children up to 4 or 5 years old.
