Pelican Baby Sled Deluxe
My 11 month old loves this sled!!! It is perfect for getting outside after a snowfall, even when the roads haven't been cleared. Helps minimize cabin fever and get some fresh air too:)

I recently purchased this sled, as my son is the perfect age for it. The idea that he is covered was perfect and made for less worry about the wind, frostbite etc.
I quickly found the following issues:
The sled DOES NOT pull well, rather at all, if the snow is heavier and wet. It gathers so much underneath, it forces the sled to practically be lying on its back. In Canada, we get wet snow.
Additionally after only a few uses, the screws fell out that hold the cover on, unfortunately while mid trip. Fixing this is easy but not much use unless you carry a screwdriver and back up screws everywhere you go.
I would not recommend this, nor would I even give it away for free. Spend the extra money and get a sled with ski style bottom, it'll be more useful.

This sled is awesome, awesome, awesome. I purchased this sled for my 8 month old and he loves it. I tried it without the cover and he got cold right away. then I put the cover on and he stayed warm and fell asleep. when I tried the cover out it was very windy out and cold and it kept him warm. It's very sturdy when going over lumps of snow. The only down fall is there is no cushion, but I folded up a old thick towel which did the trick. I would say it's a better purchased then the wooden sleds that need to be assembled and are 100 bucks. I would recommend this to everybody. Very impressed with my purchase!!!

Great for Baby!
This baby sled is awesome! Canadian made, easy to assemble and protects baby from wind and snow. Our little one enjoyed being towed while skating and walking trails. Would make a great shower gift for new parents or anyone who wants their little one to enjoy the outdoors too!

We love this sled!
This is a great sled! My son loves it, he even fell asleep in it when we went for a walk. It's very easy to pull through the snow, baby stays warm inside. The only complaint I have is that it should of came with some sort of cushion for under baby. It's just hard plastic with grooves in it but I just put a blanket underneath him and we're good to go! I would definitly recommend this!

Great bang for the buck
I just recently purchased one for my first granddaughter in Ontario, and took her out on our first snow fall. My granddaughter loved it it was easy to pull and it did not fog up in -17 weather but I will say even with the blanket down she slid a bit the sitting could be built up a bit better, but over all i loved it so much I bought another one for my other granddaughter in Edmonton..

Couldn't have picked a better gift!
I was out buying other tobaggans today and remembered that my young neice and nephew would be too small to enjoy a run down the hill. So I picked one of these up and am definitely impressed. Even though it did fog up at first, it went away after a while, and my nine month old neice stayed nice and cozy. Enough so, that she fell asleep and missed her very first tobaggan run! I can honestly say that I am very pleased at having bought this as a gift and look forward to my nephew using it this Christmas. Definitely worth the money.

Decent little sleigh for the money
I have had this sled for 3 winters now ( 2 babies), and it works just fine. I used it in town on snowy sidewalks and in deeper snow, and although it bogged down a couple of times I never felt like any other sleigh would have fared better. I have no complaints about it, except that I wish they made a bigger version so both of my little guys could ride comfortably! I would totally buy this product again.

My baby fell alseep in it :)
This sled is perfect for a cold and windy wintery day. I live in Ottawa, Ontario and we just got over a foot of snow. We took our 10th month old out in -10 degree weather with a wind chill. It was quite windy. I was so happy to have the plastic shield too cover my little one from the windy. No snow came inside the sled. It has a handy belt to fasten them in and it had great balance going up and down snow banks. My daughter is 30 inches long and 20 pounds. I would think you could fit the sled up to 18 months old. We put a blanket in to cushion her bum and we bundled her nicely. She had such a great go, she fell a sleep. Great gift and buy :)
