March 2006 | Vol. V - No. 3
As enthusiastic retailers and dealers found out at the recent New York Toy Fair, although the Super Silly Ride N Glide is classified as a ride-on toy car, it is unique from others in the marketplace. It does not require batteries, pedals or gears but instead moves left and right by the simple turning of the steering wheel. Inspired by arcade bumper cars and soapbox cars, the vehicle can traverse forward and backward and never gets stuck in the corner.
Ideal for kids with special needs, the Super Silly Ride N Glide helps develop children’s motor skills and builds social skills as well. Granted a U.S. Patent (number 6,866,278 B2) on March 15, 2005, it has been exclusively licensed by the inventor, Malcolm C. Gochioco, to Dexton LLC (ToyDirectory) of Brea, Calif.
