The sleds were the perfect size for our family. Short enough for the children - ages 3 to 7 - to go down the snow hills themselves but long enough to include an adult. Very fast so needed an adult to help stop them at the bottom. So much better than saucers that spin. Of course there is no steerring so we used them only on small hills. BTW - the price was excellent.
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.
My daughter is 16 months, got her a set of these buckets to take with on our vacation(s). It stores well in the suitcase - great quality plastic and not flimsy at all. Very entertaining, she plays all day. I usually put water in the buckets and she just shovels one pail to the other. Stacks great. Use for bath time too.
