Congratulations to the winner of the Shred Sled: oneangel, who commented, “4 INLINE wheels have much more control than 2 wheels-very cool!!”
Tis the season to start scouting out hot toys. If you’re looking for an outdoor toy for kids 8 and up, and you already have a skateboard enthusiast at your house, you should definitely consider the Shred Sled.
The Shred Sled is a really cool next generation caster board which mimics snowboarding. It is the first design to feature a 4-wheel inline, dual-deck board. Instead of pushing off the board like a regular skateboard, riders use their hips, legs, and arms to move The Shred Sled, so it really combines skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding into one unique sport (here’s a You Tube video showing it in action.)
A few things I noticed about the Shred Sled immediately: it is extremely well made and sturdy with attention to detail, such as the logo motif on the wheels, and it comes packaged beautifully in a carrying case type box with a handle. My 7-year-old daughter is very athletic (she’s playing her 7th season of soccer right now), but her legs were really too short to work the Shred Sled, so it is definitely designed for the recommended age 8 and up age group. Her friend’s 11-year-old older brother is already a pro at skateboarding and he immediately hopped on the Shred Sled and took off. He gave it a big thumbs up.
The Shred Sled is great for strengthening kids’ legs and waist muscles and encourages them to get out and active outdoors, which is such a nice alternative to all the gaming toys on the market. It was featured on The Today Show last year as a hot gift for 2008. The Shred Sled retails for $119.99 and comes with a 90-day money back guarantee. Shred Sled is currently offering a free shipping special when ordered through their website so now is a great time to check it out!
