Bumble Bee Wheelybug (large) 2.5 to 5 years, hours of fun
Wheelybugs go backwards, forwards, sideways, round and round ... they can be ridden, pushed, pulled, kissed and cuddled! These ride on bugs, great for both boys and girls, almost have a magical mind of their own.
Wheelybugs are designed to offer hours of robust fun and help to promote self-confidence, spatial awareness and gross motor skills.
The distinctive shape of the Original Wheelybug is very user friendly. The bright and friendly design is an instant attraction to girls and boys alike. They go backwards, forwards, sideways, and round and round. Children don’t get stuck against obstacles like some other ride on toys. Wheelybugs help promote gross motor skills and balance like no other toy.
Wheelybug bodies have a padded layer of sponge which is covered with a tough layer of polyurethane leatheroid and can be easily wiped clean. They are great to use on smooth level floors and ideal for indoors.
The castors are rated at 30kg each giving a total safe working load of 120kg! The base is made from plantation grown poplar plywood and has distinctive rounded contours. The "feelers" are made with stainless steel spring and have an internal limiter cord to resist pull out. The handle is aluminium so it won’t rust... all in all Wheelybugs are constructed for years of fun.
