Pelican Snow Runner
Not good for sliding
Very slow and hard to get started going down hill. It also turns randomly when going down hill and very tippy. You will have a hard time reaching the bottom of the slope because of it.
Maybe OK when pulling small kids on a perfectly flat slope.

Not for pulling small children on sidewalks
I purchased this sled so I can pull my 3-yr-old to school in it. I was very disappointed, because the sled tips over at every turn and where the snow is a bit uneven(even when I put both my kids in it). My kids don't even want to ride in it! It is definitely not for pulling kids on sidewalks(maybe it is great for donwhill tobogganing,we never tried that).

This toboggan doesn't go straight. It turns immediately & stops. It is frustrating to use.

Great, but flawed
Pros: great for pulling little ones, sturdy construction easily handles kiddy/doggy and occasional adult hoonage. Causes envy in small children forced to drudge up hills on their own.
Cons: hilariously unstable when used as a sled, random and uncontrolled direction changes are endlessly amusing (maybe that's a pro). Not suitable for face planting by full grown men (ouch), however much more compact[size 0] female companion felt dimensions were perfect.
Conclusion: great buy at $10 - just don't expect to make it down a hill in any controlled manner.

Inexpensive, smooth glide and you have two holes in the front of it that you can attach a rope to for pulling.
It says for ages 6 and up but our 3 year old fits fine on this as she's tall for her age. Just use your common sense when your kids are playing with it. It makes a great pull slide but I would wait til they're older to let them go down a hill in this as it is fast.
