Rated 5 out of 5 by LifeOwner Love my King of the Hill Size Toboggan
I searched and read reviews for available toboggans and although I found one that cost less, I assumed it would not fit the bill and I thought the LL Bean version would. It does. I got it to use with my collection of grandkids as I thought the plastic sleds we were using just didn't match up to the toboggan I used as a kid. I appreciate the instructions so I could get it waxed up and ready to go. We've lost some of our snow so I'm waiting for more to give it a real test but I'm very happy with the purchase. It's not the cheapest and there were certainly some high-end expensive ones available but I believe I got the best value in finding a sled that matches up to the ones I used in the '60's and '70's.

It took 2 1/2 weeks but it arrived today. We are impressed with the looks and quality of this Toboggan. It arrived well packaged and we appreciated the Care, Cautions and Expectations information that was included. We are looking forward to the next snow fall. The Red/Green pad fits perfect and we are glad we purchased both.

We bought this for our family of six. We went to a local hill and all six of us had a great time. Adding wax made the ride even faster. The unit is solid, yet light. The pad is comfortable, and there is plenty of room.

Perfect length for two adults and two children without being too cramped. The weight is not too much for dragging uphill, and the pad makes the ride pretty comfortable. Wax the bottom, and take it down some icy hills to "sand" the varnish smooth on the bottom, and you'll get much better speed and distance! This sled is great fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EngineeringMommy Even Better than my Grandfather's Toboggan
One of my favorite winter memories as a child was whooshing down the snowy hills of Iowa on my grandfather's long wooden toboggan with my little sister, our friends, and, occasionally, our golden retriever. Although it was a little heavier and more cumbersome to pull back up slick slopes, it put all other sleds and snow tubes to shame with its longer and faster runs. It was also much more fun to pile a bunch of kids on our toboggan for a glorious (and very noisy) ride.
L.L.Bean was generous enough to send me this toboggan as part of their Get Out(fitted) Gear Giveaway. It arrived just in time for Winter Storm Brutus, and we had a blast tobogganing down some REALLY big hills in Salt Lake City! The cushion made it much more comfortable than my grandfather's toboggan. We love our new toboggan so much that we even used this picture on the front of our family's Christmas card!

I ordered this on the last day to get things for Christmas, and it came in two days... This thing is huge, it was packaged perfectly, so there was no shipping damage... This time of year for such a large item - incredible. The sled itself is great, the cushion is also good quality material and easy to tie, fits 2 large adults, 2 medium kids, and room for 2 more medium kids... fantastic. Definitely a great purchase.

You will be the king of the hill on this sled. We have owned one for many years. It was put away for awhile as the kids grew up and moved on and now it's a big hit with the grandkids, and grandpa too. When the neighbors saw it coming down the hill they all wanted to try it. I highly recommend the cushion.

The extra-long toboggan is a blast. These traditional toboggans outperform almost all other sleds and attract a lot of attention on the hill. The speed and distance is very surprising to those who haven't been on one before. Fits up to five or six people depending on size. Highly recommended.
