Rated 5 out of 5 by LDion Fabulous Sled!
We jumped to the slope shortly after receiving this toboggan from LLBean and our family had a blast. The toboggan is well built and came in a well packaged box. Only one slight critique would be that the bottom side of the boards could use more sanding but all-in-all we love the sled. Also, the sled is wider than our other toboggan which is better for adults. It is also very sturdy, I don't feel like the slats will break when you're barreling down the hill.
Side note: In the shipping information from the company they provide information on how to order new slats if one of them were to break. That's great news for anyone that's considering purchasing one because you know its built to be repaired rather than thrown away.

Good solid sled. Bought for a family gift for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WillHunter Great Looking Toboggan Out of the Box
This is a Christmas gift for the grandkids. The toboggan arrived well- packaged. Out of the box, the appearance and build quality are pretty good. I have very high expectations on items of this type. As of yet, no snow to run it, so durability test is forthcoming. Based on its initial presentation, I would buy another.

by PetieG Shoddy workmanship
Had one of the best times of my winter life on a toboggan, so i wanted to try and recreate the joy for my family. I had always trusted LL Bean's quality but i must say, this toboggan i received isn't looking very good. Granted, we haven't actually used it because Santa just brought it to us yesterday and it's 40 degrees here in the NorthEast. I was taught to not judge things on looks alone, but missing a screw hole, patching up the old one, and trying again for a brand new product just doesn't seem right. The flaw is shown to you every time you sit down on the front of sled. Disappointed in the quality of workmanship for sure.

We currently do not have snow on the ground, ended up using the toboggan as a prop for Christmas pictures at parties. Everyone loved it. Reminds me of a longer version of the one I had as a child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HOBODOG GREAT SLED FOR THE $$$
Yes, I found a toboggan for less money, but you get what you pay for. The LL Bean toboggan is made of better wood, and the extra pads are thick, and will protect your knees on a rough hill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryBeeDee Not just a toboggan, but an incredible decoration!
We had this before, and for some reason it was lost. We move around a lot, and when the kids were small and we were up north, we used it constantly. It fit all four when they were small, and was high quality. Somewhere in our moves, we lost it. I got another, not because the kids will use it, although maybe a couple will, but because it is the best Christmas decoration out there. I actually bolted a hanger for it on the house in Florida, and had a beautiful Christmas scene with wrapped boxes, sprigs of decorated pine, etc... and received many, many compliments. Some who were also northerners knew it was the LLBean sled. Then one copied me! High quality, wonderful item. My only hope is whoever has it now enjoys it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Truckster Great fun for all
While sledding with our granddaughter, using a plastic sled, a young lady let us use her LL Bean toboggan that her in-laws had gotten about 15 years ago. It was a blast and worked great, so we got one for our granddaughter for Christmas (2013) and she loves it and has a ton of enjoyment using it with friends and parents. Ordering and delivery was excellent as is the toboggan. Sleds don't stand a chance against it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Snowboi Stylish but NOT Sturdy
I recently purchased this toboggan as a present to myself. It's a very nice toboggan BUT the quality is not what I expected from L.L. Bean.
There's the possibility of a rush in orders for the recent holiday and winter season. I'm just going to assume that resulted in a rush in the construction process as well. I haven't used it yet (needs to be waxed) but will have another review about it's endurance after several slopes.
