Wheelybugs are a timeless toy and are designed to offer hours of robust fun as well as helping to promote self-confidence, spatial awareness and gross motor skills in children from the age of 1-5 years, and often well beyond!
Available in two sizes: Small | Recommended for ages 1-3 years. Weight 1.8kg Large | Recommended for ages 3 years + Weight 2.3kg
Wheelybug bodies have a padded layer of sponge which is covered with a tough layer of polyurethane leatheroid and can be easily wiped clean.
Wooden base made from plantation grown poplar plywood
They are great to use on smooth level floors and ideal for indoors.
Whilst other Ride On Toys may be content with going backwards and forwards or side to side, the unlimited directional movement offered by the Wheelybug means that the rider can add ‘round and round’ to their fun-filled journey.
The wooden base is made from plantation grown poplar plywood and has distinctive rounded contours and the handle is aluminium, so it won’t rust if it gets wet.
The feelers are made with stainless steel spring and have an internal limiter cord to resist pull out.
Just so you know the plastic multi-directional castors are rated at 30kg each giving a total safe working load of 120kg - so don’t worry if you see Dad riding it!
Just a few things to be aware of with any ride on: Children should only use the wheelybug under adult supervision. For use only by children able to walk unassisted. Should not be used as an aid or support for walking. Ride on toys can tip over on surfaces that are not flat. The toy should be used only on smooth, level, dry surfaces. Do not allow children to use wheelybug on or near hills, inclines, steps, bridges or near a swimming pool or other body of water. Only one rider at a time. Multiple riders can cause tipping over. Do not allow a child to stand on the seat. The Wheelybug should be ridden with both feet on the ground. It is important to check that the handle and wheel bolts are tight before using the toy. A loose or detached handle or wheel can make the toy unstable. Maximum rider weight recommended is 25kg or 50lbs.
Care Instructions: Clean with soap and water. Never use polishes, abrasive cleaners or steel wool. Strong solvents e.g. acetone, can damage the surface. Exposure to sunlight for long periods can result in colour fading. Don’t leave out in the open. Keep sharp points away from the covering.
