For young children, sledding is one of the most exciting things to do in the wintertime. You will want your toddler to have as much fun as possible, but in order for that to happen, you must choose your toddlers sled carefully. Toddler sleds are very similar to baby sleds in that you must consider safety first and foremost.

Safety:

This is the most important factor to consider when purchasing a toddler sled. The safest toddler sleds are the ones that can be pulled along by parents. They must have a wide bottom for stability so that if the child leans over to touch the snow the sled doesn't tip over. Every part of the toddler sled should be securely fastened in order to ensure the childs safety. The toddler sled must have an adequate restraining harness to securely fasten the child into the sled if they are younger than 3. Some sleds even have handles for the child to hold onto.

Comfort:

Comfort is a very important factor to consider when purchasing a toddler sled. Sleds can be made from plastic or wood and can be uncomfortable to sit on. A good toddler sled should have an elevated riding position in order to keep the child warm and dry. It should also have a backrest that allows the child to lean back and still have good back support while sledding. Some sleds also have padded cushions that can add to the comfort of the child.

Durability:

A toddler sled should be made from a strong and durable material. Since it will be used outdoors a sled made from a cheap material could crack from the cold and be dangerous. However a high quality sled will require very little maintenance and will be enjoyed for a long time. In most cases these sleds are passed down to younger children due to their durability.

Due to the young age of the toddler, most will be unable to steer or control a sled on their own. It is recomended that they ride with an adult or be pulled in an approved toddler sled. Plastic toboggans, inflatable tubes and regular sleds are not suitable for solo rides for toddlers. These types of sleds can attain considerable speed even on the smallest hills.
