Rated 1 out of 5 by coachthomas Poor sledding experience
This product does not work well under general "at home" sledding conditions. It provides very little support for the sledder and it is very hard to get the sled started. If sledding on slick, hard packed snow perhaps it would slide over better but not in your average back yard with substantial snow

Got a snow day here in Cary, NC. We don't get them often so it was a fight to find a sled in the stores. Saw this one online at Dick's with 2 great reviews and they had them by the door when I got there at 9am? lucky me! NOPE! Everybody was on the hill in the neighbors yard and this performed the worst! However, my 5 year old screamed just as loudly so that was some consolation? was his first time. I could walk down the hill faster on most attempts. An older kid was nice enough to share his sled so the entire experience was great. I also have never went sledding and honestly did not want to spend a lot for something that might not perform well? but hey, great reviews right. Contrary to my initial belief, the flexible nature of it worked against the intended results? needed to be both rigid and light weight. The fastest sled on the hill was the Paricon Winter Lightning Sled? believe me that thing is fast on 3-4" of snow and is large enough for an adult. Snow was very powdery? not the consistency for snowball fights or snowmen. Very reasonable and comes with 3? BOUGHT!

I bought the Skimmers as an after Christmas gift for the girls.I just happened to walk out of our local Dicks store with a lady who had just bought her second set.She said her kids loved them and these were gifts.
They're light and easy for 5 and 10 year olds to take to school.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Momma on the Run Basic sled at a reasonable price
For [$] you get two sleds that roll up for easy storage in the car to grandma's house. Good for ages 12 and below. The bottom of the sled reminds you of the film from an old canister.
