As we enter into summer we're trying to plan fun activities so Sophia to enjoy outdoors. Well, swimming isn't happening for us, at least not in our own backyard. We had a pool last year that seemed to stay dirty no matter how much it was cleaned, covered, etc. It was just more work than it was worth so we tossed it out. For days we want to get wet we'll be turning on the sprinkler, soaping up the trampoline and playing on there like that. We did this the first year we moved into our house and had a blast. Best of all there's no maintenance and cleaning up only takes a minute - unless you play until you're out of suds! Now you see why I stockpile on so much dish soap! Well in between that Sophia needs other activities to do and I found something unique, a bit different, and fun! It's the new radio flyer ziggle
There has never been a more fun way to ride than with the NEW Radio Flyer Ziggle. All you do is twist the front and wiggle the back and off you go. Advanced riders gain speed and can drift into 360° spins. Four high performance caster wheels provide a smooth ride on any surface. The adjustable seat grows with your child and the padded hand grips, grip tape for feet and solid steel frame add comfort and control for years of fun.

We were sent this new Ziggle toy from Radio Flyer to check out for ourselves. The Ziggle is lightweight and does require assembly. Assembly, in general, is rather easy. It comes with easy to follow instructions, but the issue I had was getting all the parts screwed in tightly. That's the only part I needed the hubby for, otherwise, I got it together. So I'm quite proud of myself since I'm far from the builder in the family. Once that boring part got out the way came time for Sophia to test it out.
The way the Ziggle works is the child twists the handlebars as fast as he can while applying similar pressure with his feet on the crossbar in the front. His whole body wiggles creating the momentum and the thing just propels forward in a surprisingly clean motion and smooth ride. It all happens very fast and at the same time so it's hard to describe. It doesn't move backward, but the children manage to spin it around to change direction and keep going surprisingly (but not dangerously) fast. It is rated as being for 3 to 8 years old and I think that is accurate. It is very entertaining (even to watch) and they are using their whole bodies and heaven knows how many different muscles. It is surprisingly solid and well-built--especially for something so reasonably priced. It looks like something you can keep and hand down to the next child.
Overall we think the Ziggle is a fun toy. Sophia, who is 6, enjoyed playing on it and didn't get hurt - which is surprising for my wild child. As a mom, I feel safe allowing my children to play with this. I also feel great knowing they're having fun while exercising and staying in shape. I feel Jace too will enjoy the Ziggle, but being he is only 4 months in age we have plenty of time before we see him giving it a go. If you're looking for a new and fun toy to try out then I definitely recommend this!
