Radio Flyer wants to know How Do Your Children Roll?

Back-to-school season is officially here.  Do you remember the days when you were preparing to head back to elementary school after the lazy days of summer?  How did you roll back to the classroom? What was your back-to-school style?

Radio Flyer, the famous maker of the little red wagon, wants to help your kids roll back to school in style.

Be the first kids on the block to experience the new Radio Flyer GrooveGlider (with built in MP3 speakers to rock and roll at the same time) and Shockwave (FLEXDECK technology for bigger jumps) scooters – designed for girls and boys ages 5+ with the latest bells and whistles they want most.

GrooveGlider Scooter– 5 years +
$59.99 on RadioFlyer.com

  • The GrooveGlider is a first of its kind… giving girls a scooter that speaks to their top 3 interests – music, socializing and riding through the neighborhood
  • With a built-in MP3 speaker case positioned conveniently between the handle bars, the GrooveGlider lets girls rock out to their music while they ride
  • The MP3 storage case projects great sound and is weather resistant, even durable enough to handle the inevitable scooter drop
  • The 3-position adjustable handlebars on the GrooveGlider allows for a grow-with-me feature, while a quiet, no-rattle ride

Shockwave Scooter – 5 years +
$59.99 on RadioFlyer.com

  • There are two things boys are concerned about when it comes to their scooters – speed and big jumps.  Shockwave delivers both.
  • A unique FLEXDECK technology gives the thrill of bigger jumps and provides suspension for a smooth, fast ride.
  • Solid steel frame and bolted, 3-position handle bars allow no-rattle ride and quality that endures

Its time to street surf with the Whiplash

Summer is in full bloom in NYC as the weather has been in the high 90’s for a solid week plus now (thankfully it seems a little cooler at mid 80’s). Since Dada Rocks is about getting out and playing with kids (before I melt in this hot NYC weather)… Its time to break out the stuff for the older kids… Introducing the Whiplash , Its the Waveboard and a scooter mixed into one awesome new outdoor toy (sure if you have enough room like say Google Headquarters you can use it inside).

The coolness factor on this awesome hardware is that once you get your skill level up you never need to touch your feet to the ground like their waveboard you can use your body/legs to keep the scooter continually moving. We’ve been playing with the unit in Arizona and its been a blast for the kids ranging in ages from 7-15… While our 15 year old had a little trouble footing the board due to his size (he’s a giant!) the other 3 kids had no problem and quickly got to a level were they didnt need to touch the ground.

I’m going to put this out there that a child should always wear some type of protective head gear (and maybe wrist guards) to protect themselves. While thats not shown in the picture above. this is more of a do as I say not as I do type warning!

If you’d like to get your own you can purchase one from Amazon [Link] and other major retail locations. Here is a quick promo video showing off the whiplash.

The Whiplash website is loaded with great videos that make it easier for kids to see what they need to know to get their skill level up [Link] you’ll learn to drift, cut and self propel.
