I think it was during a 7-hour layover at Heathrow when I first saw one of these in action, and what I would have given to have one for my toddler that day. The family hailed from Israel and travels constantly between three continents for work projects, so this was just one of many bright ideas they had packed into a tote bag to keep their two kids busy between flights.
As you can see, the Quick-Smart Scuttlebug indeed folds small enough to fit in a simple tote bag, along with a favorite book and a few other travel toys. Made for tots 12 months up to 3 years old (up to 33 lbs.), you can see how this travel-friendly ride-on toy may easily make the rounds:
- at a vacant gate during your next airport layover,
- or around the campground loop this summer,
- or down the halls and around the sun deck during your family cruise.
The QuickSmart Scuttlebug weighs only 4.3 lbs.; has quiet, no-scratch wheels, can be used indoors and out, and folds to 4.7”H x 19.3”L x 9.1”W. And better still, it has front-wheel steering for extra maneuverability.
There are a few different “bugs” to choose from, including the bumblebee, ladybug, and a dragonfly. To find out more about the QuickSmart Scuttlebug or purchase one for your toddler, click here.
