skitter car demonstration:


A toy any child would be proud of!

Remember the Plasma Car giveaway we hosted a few months ago? Didn't it look like oodles of fun? Well, the Skitter Car is actually its predecessor. That's right, the first, the only, the original. The Skitter Car is actually part of SkitterToys is an American Company (owned by WCNGroup) based in Southern California. Since 2003, the company has sold many, many Skitter Cars, won many, many toy awards (including Dr. Toy's Best Product award), and established a loyal Skitter fanbase!

So what makes the Skitter Car special? Why does it make for a great toy? Here are five main reasons:

1. Eco-friendly (made from recyclable materials, runs primarily on centrifugal force and allows kids to self-propel)
2. Amazing upgrades, including wheels and expandable steering wheel
3. Will improve your child's coordination and core strength
4. Holds up to 150 lbs (aka its adult-friendly as well)
5. Can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Additionally, your child will most likely have a car in his/her favorite color seeing as six exciting color options are offered.

According to their site, SkitterToys ensures the following commitments:

*Safe Toys
*Superior customer service
*Expert toy & play advice
*Dedication to kids

What I learned today is that I can ride on it too (but my husband cannot because he is more than the weight limit).

The skitter car is best if used on concrete or hardwood floor. Different wheels make it easier to ride on different surfaces.
