Toddlers Love Pillow Racers as their First Set of Wheels

There are times when I wish I was still a toddler. Watching a little kid racing around on the floor with a Little Tikes Pillow Racer is one of those times. These little riding toys are amazing; they're fun to look at, they're soft and squishy, and they keep kids mobile. Why weren't these things around when I was a kid?

Produced by Little Tikes, a Pillow Racer is a stuffed animal that you can ride around on during the day and cuddle it like a pillow at night. It is an amazing idea. There are six different Pillow Racers: pink unicorn (already my favorite), lady bug, green turtle, dino (which is a dinosaur), plane, and fire truck.

The Pillow Racer is really a very clever scooter that comes in two parts: a wheeled base and a pillow character. The plush pillow character is very soft and cuddly. You wrap it over the wheeled base or racer. Velcro keeps the pillow attached to the racer so that your kids can safely ride it like a scooter without fear of slipping. The Pillow Racer can handle weight up to 50 lbs.

It also comes with an easy-grip handle that is attached to the base to provide extra stability. The handle is grip friendly for little hands so that kids can easily hold on to it while they are scooting or while they are making 360-degree turns.

That's right, your kid can do wheelies at a young age on these nimble Racers. The four caster wheels allow your little tot not only to scoot around but to spin. But don't worry that they will crash headlong onto the floor in their zeal for speed. The base comes with a stabilizer that extends from the front of the scooter to prevent that from happening. It's really a very well-designed riding toy.

When your toddler is ready for a nap after all that racing, you can slip off the pillow from the racer so your child can snuggle with it. The plush pillow is made of soft polyester fiber and washable! As for assembly, there are few pieces to assemble and only takes 5-10 minutes without tools. The appropriate age for this ride-on toy is 18 months to 3 years.

Darn! I really wish I was a kid again.
