Granted, it makes for some good video footage when the kids hop on a sled and crash into a tree, but the aftermath is usually a lot better when they complete the run without incident. Flexible Flyer's PT Blaster gives its riders the same thrill of pummeling down a snow-covered hill with a frozen Weeeee! on their faces, but allows them to do it with control and a sense of direction. The sled has a fully functional steering wheel that enables its driver to maneuver around moguls, dips, and other obstacles, plus a spring-activated brake to reel in speeds when they get too fast for a safe ride.

On the flip side, the PT Blaster's steering and braking capabilities can also benefit daredevils who want to hit a jump spot on, or win a free trip to the emergency room.

Flexible Flyer recommends its PT Blaster for kids ages 4 and up. It measures 45" x 18" x 20" and weighs about 3-1/2 pounds.
