Wheely Bug

wheelybug.jpgMy daughter loves her wheely bug. In fact, all of her friends love her wheely bug too. In fact, I have to put away the wheely bug when kids come over to play at our place as I don’t actually like to see 4 toddlers getting in touch with their primal side and assaulting each other over a toy in my living room!

A piece of genuine Ozzy ingenuity!  The reason the wheely bug is so popular with the toddler market (which, as we all know is a very demanding market) is because it is incredibly easy to ride. The wheels are like desk chair wheels so they swivel easily in whatever direction the kid want to go.

The wheely bug comes in the guise of lots of different animals and they look super cute, especially with a little toddler on it, laughing her little head off with delight!

do you have the small or big version?

My son also proudly owns a wheely bug and LOVES it. He used it as a walker before he could walk, and now rides it.
We have the smaller version (the cow). I think the bigger one is meant for children 3-5 years.

We have got the smaller one. They look very small but kids have such short legs that the small one actually seems to suit kids up to about 3.5 years.

We have one too, and my older son LOVED it. It was his favorite toy. Funnily enough- my second son has never really taken to it. Weird, huh?

it has happened to us with some toys and equipment too, what one child loved the other ignored…and vice-versa!

hello girls! i was wondering whether the wheely bug is good for outdoor use too (the wheels don’t seem compatible with pavements, sand or gravel), or is it intended for indoors?

I have never taken ours outdoors. It is a pretty sturdy toy and I am sure it would survive but I am pretty sure it is intended for indoors!

I just moved to London a few weeks ago, and one of the hardest parts was leaving our wheely bug behind! they are the perfect little scooters for littl’e ones.

Was doing a bit of research and came across this blog on the wheely bug well worth a look

My daughter is five (she has a small bee) and is so far her all time favourite toy!

I love them too (but I am biased, as I too am an Aussie!!) … for once a toy that is a great ‘piece’ to have lying around the apartment! Our son loved his and am sure his baby sister will be zipping up and down the hallways on it soon too! Ugg…

I have a 6 month old boy and was looking to buy a Wheelybug from http://www.designerark.co.uk/category/19/Wheelybugs but I’m not sure which style to go for and also when the earliest possible age it would be safe to use. I know the small suggests 1 years + but is this too early?!?

All the styles are great. I love the lady bug because it is the classic one… It is great for smaller kids too. My little girl loved the wheely bug when she was crawling as she loved pushing it around in front of her and playing with the feelers… It’s a multi-purpose toy
