this is the second time I have ordered these for a community "sled hill" and the adults like these sleds since they are smaller so you do not necessarily need to rope to pull them since they are small enough for kids to carry up, the stack into each other for easy storage, and are made in the USA. The plastic is pretty dense and tough since these take a real beating from kids and adults of all ages-the first batch of 12 we ordered we only broke two and that is because they get very rough and frequent usage with kids jumping on them and all sorts of crazy stuff that happens when you have have 5-6 little boys trying to pile on top of each other (helmets may be required next)---the other big pro to them being smaller is that you can ditch the rope so the kids have to haul them up the hill and the rope doesn't keep getting caught underneath when they slide down.
I bought 2 of the Flexible Flyer Red Steel Saucer Sleds for my two daughters (ages 10 & 12) and I must say these are great for any age and will absolutely fly down a bank or hill. I would recommend for parents to be with smaller children when riding them because they could be very dangerous. Very sturdy, even for adults! Price is a little high but I am happy with my purchase.
