The best sleds on the market — for kids and kids at heart
By Brittany Anas
Some traditions are just as fun when you’re an adult as when you were a kid. Just ask your former college roommate who got busted sneaking cafeteria trays out of the dining hall, greasing them up with Crisco and sledding down a snowy hill — re-living his tobogganing days. (Kids, don’t try that at home).
Whether you are nostalgic about for those glory days when you had the fastest sled on the snowy park hill or you’re introducing your own kids to the sport, here’s how you can best enjoy the winter past time. And don’t forget the hot chocolate with the candy cane stir straws for an apres-sled drink.

- Winter stroller pull sled for the littlest of kids. So the wheels on your stroller don’t fare well in the snow? No problem. There’s a sled for that. We’re loving this Paricon Winter Stroller Pull Sled that will let your little one enjoy a smooth ride in the snow. The runners on this pull sled are made with stainless steel which allows the sled to glide through the snow and comes with a built-in safety belt. Best for ages 18 months to 4 years. (Pictured)
- Old school snow sled: Ever tell your kids the tall tales that begin with “Back in my day …” This snow sled is reminiscent of yesteryear for a classic ride down the hill. Or, go with a classic 6-foot toboggan that could fit two.
- Inflatable sled: The cool new ride for snowy hills is inflatable and seats two. Find the Lucky Bums Kid’s Racer Sled at Sears for $34. (Pictured)
- Saucer sled: Great for twirling and twisting down the hill, this saucer sled is lightweight (easy for carrying back up the hill) and comes with side handles.
