Gia’s New Favorite Toy – The Radio Flyer Ziggle

the pink ziggle from radio flyerWhen our daughter was a little girl we purchased a little red wagon from Radio Flyer that she absolutely loved! She would play with that wagon for hours and we loved to take walks through our neighborhood pulling her along inside that wagon. Toys like that make for great family memories!

Now that we are grand parents we were looking around for something special for Gia to play with this summer. She already has a wagon and a bicycle with training wheels, so we were looking for something a little different. After a little searching, we did find the perfect item and I am excited to tell you about it today.

Before I get started with my review, I wanted to tell you about the Radio Flyer Birthday Club. If you join you will get a $10.00 gift card. See their site for complete details.

Our Thoughts: Once the Ziggle arrived to our home my husband immediately got it assembled. He spent 5 minutes reading the instructions and then used the included Allen Wrench and his own adjustable wrench to assemble it which took him less than 15 minutes, tops! Quick and easy, just the way he likes it.

The Princess came over the very next day and we had her sit on it so he could adjust the seat to her own height. What is really cool is that the seat will adjust and grow with your child. This took him less than a minute to do and once done…we all headed outside for some fun.

To make the Ziggle go your child has to “twist the front” and “wiggle the back” and the riding toy (bike as she calls it) takes off. Your child totally controls how fast or how slow it will go. Since your child has to twist & wiggle, it is great exercise for them in my opinion and all kids need more exercise these days and need to be outside playing in the sunshine & fresh air.

Check out the Ziggle video above to see it in action!

There is “grip tape” up where your child places their feet so you don’t have to worry about their feet slipping off which is a really nice feature along with the cushioned handle bar grips.

The Princess tried out the Ziggle on several different types of surfaces: cement sidewalk, paved driveway, grass yard and down a dirt road. The Ziggle did well on all surfaces except for the grass, which she did have to work pretty hard to get it to go on the grass & then gave up. Other than that, it goes great on many different types of surfaces.

The Ziggle from Radio Flyer has quickly become her new favorite outdoor toy! Every time she is over at our house…she wants to be outside riding it and I have no problem with that! Anything to get our kids up & moving! When she rides it…she rides it for hours without getting bored!

    Looks like a lot of fun for kids (I’d kill myself if I tried an adult sized one for sure)! And more exercise I think than perhaps a regular bike. Radio Flyer is a company I trust to make a good product!

  2. Sarah L says:

    This looks like lots of fun and great exercise. Glad to know it doesn’t tip over easily.

    What a fun riding toy! I have never seen one of these before but I am sure my grandsons will love playing on one!

    This looks like a lot of fun for the kids and I love that they get exercise while using it. I also love that it only took 15 minutes to assemble that is wonderful. I had never seen this toy before your wonderful review thanks for sharing I wish I had one when I was a child.

  5. Thanks for the comments ladies! It is great exercise for the kids and Gia gets a work out every time she rides it which is just about every day. She absolutely loves it! Another great feature is that we have experienced NO tipping either…so far, no wrecks or any problems with it.

  6. This looks a lot more fun and interactive than my Radio Flyer wagon I had as a kid. Great for getting some exercise too with the twisting and turning.

    This sounds like a great new toy for kids. I have always liked the items from Radio Flyer and I especially like that this Ziggle makes the kids move and exercise in order to make it work – but it is fun for them.
