Radio Flyer NEW Cyclone Review

cyclone

Looking for a fun and unique ride for your 3-7 year old? Check out the new Radio Flyer Cyclone, a fantastic new ride-on from the makers of the little red wagon.
This arm-powered ride-on encourages healthy playtime and it is perfect for active indoor or outdoor play. The Cyclone features an ergonomically designed seat and frame and two 16″ wheels to help kids go forward, reverse or twirl in 360 degree spins, so much fun!
We received one to try and my three and a half year old loves it,  he asks to go outside to play with it all the time, but since it is pretty rainy in Vancouver he still uses it indoors daily!

I was surprised to see that the Cyclone came in a medium size box not as large as I would imagine, it does require assembly of course but it comes with a set of easy to follow instructions.  It didn’t take more than 10 minutes for us to put it together.

The Cyclone is sleek and sturdy and it provides hours of non-stop fun, it is good for children 3-7 years old and has a weight limit of 70 lbs.
I am definitively waiting for them to make one for adults, wouldn’t it be fun to race with your kids while staying active and getting a good upper muscle work-out?

      Yeah, I’d like one in adult size, too. I’m quite sedentary, but I think the Cyclone will get me back outside. I used to ride a bike, but I quit a couple years ago when I almost hit someone and then ran into a tree! Now my balance is so poor, I can hardly pedal without the bike shaking!
      I think the Cyclone will be a lot easier for me to handle. Plus, due to my equinus gait (which was originally in both feet – can be a warning sign of autism, which I have – and was corrected during my late elementary years thanks to intensive PT, but since Middle School has came back on my left foot, which is weak due to my hemiparesis, as they did not provide the same PT as the place that I went to), my leg gets really tight and falls asleep/cramps up a lot. Once, I even had a bad fall when that happened. Thus, I think the Cyclone will help me get around when my cramping gets severe.
      Does the Cyclone have emergency brakes? I might need those if I’m going down an incline/steps!
      PS. My site has Broadway bootlegs! 😉

    That is sooo cool. It actually reminds me of my first wheelchair at 2 years old.

    Caan I simply ssay wyat a comfort to find a person that genuiely
    knows what they are discusskng on the web.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people have to check this out and understand this side of
    the story. I wass surprised that you are not more popular given that
    you surely have the gift.

    The Cyclone seems to be a really fun toy/vehicle for kids. I think that I might be a little scared to let them outdoors with it – they’d be way too fast for me to catch up!

    I always spent my half an hour to read this web site’s articles everyday
    along with a cup of coffee.
