Pelican Snow Glider
Pretty stable and lots of fun
This is a really enjoyble sleigh. It is lightweight, thus easily pulled by a 5 years old. We liked how stable it is on hard snow. Pretty easy to control with the inivitable 180 degrees turn by itself once in a while... A great way to enjoy our Canadian winter!

A little flimsy
This sled is not bad for hard pack but there are a couple of problems:
The plastic is quite flimsy and you (or your child) is going to feel every bump they go over.
Something a little stiffer would probably be better.

Hauled the kids all over
I bought one of these sleds about 2 years ago. My husband added a fairly long rope, so I can put the rope around my waist and haul my two kids (about 80 lbs with the two of them now) hands free. I pull them to all our local activities, and it has been just right for the snowy alleys and short runs across sanded roads.
It did get a small crack on the back corner almost right away, but other than that, it has been quite durable. It certainly has been worth the $13 plus rope.

Fun, Fast and Furious!
This slide just SOARS down hard packed snow!
My 2 1/2 year old and I fit perfectly and she feels safe because she's snug between my legs and has the sides for support.
Steering is kind of "luge" style lol. You can pull the sides and/or lean and it turns nice, but you're going so fast that you have to be on your toes if you're around other sliders. It definitely won't turn on a dime!
Very lightweight yet sturdy plastic. No rope but mine had two holes that you could put one if you want.
Overall, my daughter and I loved this and for the money you can't go wrong!

Run to the hills
Bought this sled to go sliding with my 2.5 yr old toddler and it's great. Lots of room for adults to sit with kids. Also, it's very lightweight making it easy to carry back up the hill. Doesn't come with a rope, but there are pre-cut holes so that you could add your own if you want. One thing I noticed is that the edges seem a bit sharp, which could pose a threat to others walking if you happened to glance them with the sled. Other than that it's a great buy for some inexpensive fun.

Fun and cheap
My two girls love this Snow Glider. For a multiple person sled, the price is great and it performs well. Great deal.

Head for the hills!
This toboggan has provided a lot of snow fun!! Even got a combined weight of approx 300 lbs on it and we flew down the hill. Hit a few bumps and a few things but the plastic is durable to take the dents which were easily knocked back into place. Side ridges for steering are much appreciated.
The length is quite generous and it is quite spacious to hold a load yet light enough to easily carry (although somewhat canoe-like). The downside is trying to fit it in a car...Mine rides in the backseat. :)

Great for little ones!
We purchased this sled and our kids loved it, especially our 4 year old and 7 year old with an adult. It's still in great shape no tears or anything, it should last quite a few more years!
