This post is part of our brand-new series on American-made toys available at Pufferbellies. Also check out our post on coloring books by NanaBanana Classics.
Here’s another one of our favorite American-made toys: the Zipfy mini luge. This was the surprise hit of our 2010 Christmas season here at the store, and we’ve already sold a bunch this year, too. We’re hoping for lots of snow in Staunton — but not ’til after Christmas!
The Zipfy is super-fast and super-fun — one of the best sleds we’ve seen. Steer by leaning, and slow down by putting your heels down or leaning back. Plus, the Zipfy is lightweight and easy to carry back up the hill! We recommend the Zipfy for ages 6 through adult.
Here’s a great tutorial on how to ride, and a fun video of Zipy sleds in action in the Alps:
