Being a family that loves Radio Flyer products, we jumped on the opportunity to try out this awesome new ride by Radio Flyer!!  Until now, bikes, trikes, scooters and wagons have been the “go-to” form of transport for millions of kids across the country but now, a totally new set of wheels will be added to the list….. Introducing the Ziggle!! Equipped with four caster wheels for a fun, fast ride, Ziggle allows kids to glide forward or tap into the unique twisting motion for drifts and 360⁰ spin out action. An adjustable seat and padded hand grips are designed for kids 3 – 8 years old, allowing for years of twists, giggles and fun!

Radio Flyer Ziggle

Our little Abby has only had the Ziggle for about 4 days, and has already spent hours riding! We took the Ziggle to the ball field last night and she Ziggled & Giggled around the ball park for 2 hours!! We had so many ooh’s and awww’s as she passed by people! Several people had to know where we got such a cool ride!

Things we love about the Ziggle
•Easy to assemble-It took maybe 10 minutes
•It is light weight, so it can easily be carried to grandma’s house, the park, or if you are like us the ball field!
•It is easy to ride. Abby hopped on and had it figured out in a matter of seconds!
•The price point! Grab your very own Ziggle HERE for only $49.99!
•Get the same quality and construction that you expect from Radio Flyer Products!

The ONLY Con we have found
•They really need to make these in adult sizes!!! I really want one too!!!
