Pod Racer/ Our World

Going downhill in style

Fast and soft! Doesn't this inflatable pod racer look like fun? And for extra precaution, the rider is wearing a helmet.

At the top of the hill, making sure the rider is safe

Wow! What a ride!

Oops! Are those tail lights leading?

What comes down must go up

What fun! Gosh, look what we are missing out on down here in the South!

Sandra said...

this is really cool and it would be easy to store during the summer. 150 minutes per week, as a minimum.

see you there! said...

Wheeeee! That's the first word that came to mind as I saw these.

I just wanted to let you know I deleted your comment instead of publishing it today, I know I am such a dimwit, sorry about that......

Those things are tricked out like racing cars.

Halcyon said...

At the slopes we visited in Uxbridge, the kids were required to wear helmets. I think it's a good idea, better safe than sorry.
I've never seen one of these inflatable thingies, but it looks like fun!

Renegade #7 looks like a very skillful driver...wonder how old he is and what his professional aspirations might be. It wouldn't take a wild guess for that young man!

Judy said...

I love it. I need to find those for when the grand kids come to visit, they would absolutely love it, they would have to bring their hockey helmets tho, we don't have any laying around the house anymore :)

Pam said...

What an amazing sled for young and old alike. With all that soft protection I would love to go sledding again.
Wow, wonderful shots as always.
Pam :)

Michelle said...

What fun! I want one!

George said...

I've not seen this type of sled before. It looks like it would be lots of fun, even if you did have to trudge back up the hill.

Paul in Powell River said...

This is new to me also, but it sure does look like a good ride!

TexWisGirl said...

that is SO cool!!!

Carver said...

That looks like so much fun. The children in my neighborhood have been disappointed at not being able to use their sleds yet this winter. It's still possible they well get a chance but so far we've had the wimpiest winter ever.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Oh wow, I'd do that. Do they make an adult who thinks he's still a kid size?

Lowell said...

I'm with the others: This is new to me, but it looks great and relatively safe. What fun for the kiddos. Nice series of action shots.

Re your question: I care nothing about football, but we ended up watching the game and found it to be rather enjoyable. It was exciting. I had no favorite team. I dislike all of them.

jewaicious said...

What wonderful shots, so filled with joy and life.

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

Wow, I have never seen one of these before!

La Principessa Errante said...

That looks such fun and I'm glad to see he's wearing a crash helmet:-)

Small City Scenes said...

Wowee it does look like fun. My grandsons would love them and maybe me too. MB

NixBlog said...

Looks like great fun! I'm surprised that the inflatable thingamajic is sturdy enough for the punishment it gets! Great shots.

RedPat said...

it would be a lot easier on the bum than a toboggan!

Gary said...

Is that what a sled has now become!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, what fun!! My kids would have loved one of those - way back when! Terrific that he's wearing a helmet! Hmmmm, come to think of it, I'd like a ride in one of those, too, only I don't think my legs would fold up that small!! Have a great week!

Ebie said...

This is so cool! I have never seen one like that played here!

What an energetic kid!

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

A lot more high tech than when I used to slide down the snow on any old bit of wood I could find. And probably safer too!

Lucy said...

What tremendous fun - and how clever that it is inflatable.

Gattina said...

That's a great toy, have never seen such a thing ! would be something for my little grandson when he is older !

Zosia said...

WOW! Wish I had this when I was tobogganing in Austria two weeks ago :-)
