Rated 1 out of 5 by friendofdogs Great for sitting, not for sliding.
Bought these when they first went on sale. Figured it would be nice to have a few extra things to slide on when other kids came over. First big snow we took them. The regular LL Bean sleds worked great fast and fun. These wouldn't budge. First my 35 lb daughter tried, and then my 165 lb husband tried. Nothing. Even with me pushing, Didn't expect much, but surely expected them to move! I would highly recommend buying the saucer instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CyclinMama Super fun, easy for kids to carry themselves
I was a little nervous about getting these sleds, but the price was right and I figured I'd give them a try - and I'm so glad I did! These sleds are perfect for my kids. Admittedly, they won't be the fastest sleds on the hill, but they are portable, easy to carry, and their convenience more than makes up for being a little slower.
If you want an epic sledding experience, get an epic sled for a lot more money and a lot more weight. But if you want a simple, fun, and easy to transport way to have a ton of fun as a family, these sleds won't let you down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by momof10 nice, simple, and fun
These sleds are fun to use and can be used easily by children. You just have to lean back slightly, put your feet up, and go. We got these for Christmas and were glad to see the snow so we could try them out. We have gone through many sleds and find these to be good ones .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Handyy great fun!
For those who can't get this work, see review from January 1, 2011 by Brayde that has two pictures. These are small -- the disk is just for your behind and that is all. If you put your legs on the disc, it won't slide well, maybe not at all.
My 6'3" hubby can slide on this, your 8 year old can too!
Sit on the disc with your legs in front of you on either side of the handle, knees bent. Now lift the handle and lean back, lifting legs as you do -- oh yeah, it's a bit of an ab workout but not too bad.
This works best on harder snow. If you tend to have only fluffy stuff in your area, this is not going to be the sled for you. On packed snow, this little sled is pretty quick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LauraM These don't slide anywhere
I had high hopes for these, but when my kids sat on them, they simply didn't slide. I tried one too -- no sliding action whatsoever. We LOVE the LLBean intertube sled, so we'll stick with those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CandiceinLA Fun sledding for any age!
I was thrilled to find these sliders. Last year I'd bought similar ones to use with our 2-year old daughter (she sat on our lap) and we loved them as did our relatives who'd joined us for a day in the snow.
To be clear - these are not sleds, and your legs do not fit on the sled, but instead are stretched out in front. This makes them perfect for both children and adults as your feet are always in position to slow you down when needed.
Also, this extra large size is great. Our prior sliders are the smaller ones also offered on this site. While they were big enough for all members of our family - including a couple of large adults - the bigger size is just nicer and feels more age-appropriate.

These were a waste of money. The kids couldnt't make them work. My husband finally threw them out. Save your money.

Although a Christmas gift for nephew and niece, I may "preview" for the "experience".

Wish I would have listened to the reviews. My daughter and her husband said it's not worth the price and they are being returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nancy6s Great for the money
I bought these sleds for my grandsons and they can't wait to use them. I loved the fact that it was a 2 pack so I didn't have to buy one for each child. Since they haven't had a chance to use them yet, I can't comment on the durability or performance.
