Whilst other Ride On Toys may be content with going backwards and forwards or side to side, the unlimited directional movement offered by the Wheelybug means that the rider can add ‘round and round’ to their fun-filled journey.
Wheelybugs can be ridden, pushed, pulled, kissed and cuddled! These colourful ride on bugs, great for both boys and girls, almost have a magical mind of their own. They are designed to offer hours of robust fun and help to promote self-confidence, spatial awareness and gross motor skills.
Wheelybug bodies have a padded layer of sponge which is covered with a tough layer of polyurethane leatheroid and can be easily wiped clean. They are great to use on smooth level floors and ideal for indoors.
The Panda and Hedgehog Wheelybugs have plush covers which are removable and interchangeable; they are only available in the Small size and the plush covers will not fit the traditional Bee, Ladybird, Cow, Tiger or Mouse Wheelybugs.
