A Young Raring2go! Reviewer Tests the Buggy Dirt Scout


fizz_dirt_buggy_image1.jpgWe (me, little kid, big kid – her dad) got a chance to try out the Buggy Dirt Scout.  We decided to take it outside for it's first test drive as the sun was out!It was immediately clear that it couldn't cope with the hilly grass of my garden but with the soft bumpers it proved to be acceptable to have it crashing into kitchen cabinets and our legs with no damage.

This buggy was easy enough for my 2 ½  yr old to control although she did often pick it up and turn it around and in the hands of her dad it zoomed around corners and slid to screeching halts.

The first time we used it, it kept her entertained for over 40mins which as anyone with children knows is about 6 times the normal attention span!

The buggy coped better with the attentions of a child than the controller, which somewhat suffered in her clumsy (exuberant) hands.  Good news is that it did still work with half an aerial.

We also tried this out in another garden that was flatter with shorter grass and it did much better – maybe our lawn needs a mow?  Oh well no time for that…too busy playing with the Buggy Dirt Scout

My name is Anna, I have 1 gorgeous little girl, Holly. Her Daddy and I love taking her camping, swimming and to the beach. We are currently rennovating our house, but love nothing more than escaping to the great outdoors as a family! We are keen scuba divers and Holly has now got her first wetsuit so she can join us on our trips (not that she is diving yet!)

Sarah from Xercise4Less gives Raring2go! some great ideas for family fun to keep fit and healthy. Don't get stuck indoors just because it is winter. Dark mornings, cold blustery evenings and it seems we would all rather reach for our duvet than even contemplate heading outdoors to get active! Remember it’s only cold when you’re standing still…
