If you have been lucky enough to have time off work because of the recent wintery weather, then you'll know how much fun snow can be. This is particularly true if you have children. A snow day is a magical family memory to treasure forever. Waking up to find that your child's school is closed and that you are unable to get to the office can be a blessing in disguise, enabling you and your and your family to spend unpressurised quality time together, enjoying something that is both unique and transforming! Snow has the capacity to transform your familiar surroundings into a magical winter wonderland.
However, we all know how disappointing it can be for us and our children when we go to fetch the trusty family sledge from the back of the shed or garage, only to find that it is lost, broken or has an obvious crack in it that will mean that it could easily shatter if put through its paces.
For this reason it is always a good idea to check the condition of your sledge or toboggan in advance to ensure that a snow day is a go day when it comes to outdoor winter fun.
We recommend that you go back in time to an era when sledges were simple and durable, and invest in a wooden one. Colint Davos 120 wooden sledge is a classic German built wooden sledge that is simple, practical and will last you many years if it is properly looked after.
Here at Wicken Toys we value the simple well-made toys of the past and these wooden sledges are no exception. They are a nostalgic treat for parents, who will no doubt remember them from their own childhoods. However, if wood is not your thing and you are looking for aero-dynamics and speed then take a look at the Super Sledge Firecom Red, which is suitable for older children who will be more experienced at sledging. This sledge is super fast and good in most conditions including ice and hardened snow or soft snow and sludge. Indeed, its wide plastic runners make it extremely stable on all surfaces.
So if you've been caught out by the recent cold snap and were unprepared for snow day winter fun, then take a look at our Wicken Toys sledge range. There are plenty to choose from to suit all abilities and ages. So why not browse our range to find the perfect sledge for your family, then order it in advance to save disappointment next time it snows.
