12 Classic Toys That Still Rock

Flexible Flyer Sled (Flexible Flyer)


When we were young, and a snowy hill beckoned, there were no such things as snow-tubes or other high-tech gizmos with brakes, fancy runners, and cutting-edge materials. Instead, it was just you, the hill, and a piece of wood and steel called the Flexible Flyer. (Remember running with it, and then jumping on it, to get a good start? Or seeing how many kids you could pile up on top of one? Ouch!) Flexible Flyers are still beautifully made of wood with rust-resistant steel runners. It's not as fast as a snow tube, nor as comfortable on your body, but there's a lot to be said for its sense of nostalgia.

Ages 5+
