Looking for something that is totally unique, award-winning and just down right F-U-N?!
Check out The Original Flying Turtle®. For ages 3 to 12 and up to 150 pounds. Fun and fast, the Original Flying Scooter is a kid-powered seated scooter that provides hours of indoor/outdoor play for children aged 3 to 12 years old. This award-winning toy’s unique method of propulsion has made it the subject of studies in experimental nonlinear physics–but we like it for the good times it provides. Simply sit on the molded seat, put your feet on the chrome handle bars, and swing the handlebars side to side to propel yourself forward on level surfaces.
Ready for vigorous play, the Flying Turtle can handle up to 150 pounds and is constructed with a high-quality molded plastic seat, a chrome-colored, powder-coated handlebar, and polyurethane wheels. Great for indoors or outdoors, the Flying Turtle can be ridden on linoleum or hardwood floors, as the polyurethane wheels will not leave marks or scratches. It works great on concrete or asphalt surfaces and on the sidewalk or driveway outside.
Kid-tested and kid-approved, the Flying Turtle was originally designed by a retired Boeing engineer in the 1970s for his grandson. He used a tractor seat on the prototype model that still resembles the seat of today. The Flying Turtle’s front wheels are connected to the handlebars by a lever in such a way that the torque applied to the handlebars when the rider swings them causes a lateral friction force by the wheels on the ground and accelerates the car forward.
A great toy to get your kids outside and active. They’ll be having so much fun they won’t realize they are getting a little workout!
