shred sled...

Last week, we received another fun package from Team Mom

Inside, we found a great new "toy," and this time it was for the big kids! 

Here's what we received:


It's a Shred Sled!

What is a shred sled?  A shred sled is a next-generation caster board that combines the movements of snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding all into one experience.  There are 4-wheels and two decks, connected by a flexible tubing.  Each deck has a great grip surface too...which is something I was worried about, so I was glad to see that the kid's feet gripped the board really well.

Instead of pushing off like a regular skateboard, you have to use your hips, legs, and arms to move the board.  It really is a great workout...I need to learn how to do it, I bet I'd burn more calories than I do on the treadmill.  (If only I had a private sidewalk where none of my neighbors could see me falling on my rump trying to figure it out, lol.)

I need to get better pictures of the kids riding it - Meagan and Josh are both getting good! 

Here are a couple of quick pictures I took the day we took it out of the box:



[Yes, I know - we need to get some safety gear...we will, we will...]

Thanks, Shred Sled and Team Mom for sending us a fun product to try out and review!  :o)
