5.0 out of 5 stars Only the Best, November 23, 2010

By Terry Mullins (EAGAN, MN, US)

This is without a doubt the best toboggan you can buy. The pad is also a must and you should purchase it with the toboggan. You can wax this baby up and by dragging your hands or pushing down on the front corner and pulling up on the opposit corner, turn and glide like you're floating in the clouds. Let it snow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet! I love this beautiful toboggan!, November 30, 2010

By A. Buck "family girl" (Denver, CO)

We have been having so much fun on this thing. It fits our whole family - 2 adults and our 2 kids. Lots of laughing and screaming and "let's do that again". Plus its beautiful! Bye, bye plastic sleds for this family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply awesome!, December 7, 2010

By Ben

We purchased this in 2009 upon moving from Alabama to Upstate New York and am I glad we did! This toboggan is exceptionally fast once we waxed the bottom! We had the entire family on absolutely FLYING down the hill. To top it all off, people stopped us to comment specifically how beautiful this toboggan is...and they're right! I would not hesitate to purchase any of Mountain Boy Sledworks products.

      What a great Winter fun Recipe! We usually make snowballs and throw them at each other; some kids cry; some kids survive, haha, it's really fun! But now that I've come across with these fabulous Toboggans, I think it will be really fun to have one. I got 4 boys and 3 girls so it will be perfect!....man, the thought of getting Toboggans is really cool :). I'll see bout that in 3 months? Wow, hohoho! Fascinating lens, dear Joe! God bless you!

      Not much anymore, and for many years, doing chores in the snow was our winter pastime, using the sled to haul water buckets and hay bales. But sledding and snowshoeing were my and my kids idea of a fun afternoon!
