What exactly are “Skidders,” you ask? Part of the Road Rippers line from Toy State, the Skidders are electronic vehicles that have lights, sound, music and motion – all working together to get the rides rockin’ down the road before coming to a dramatic, fish-tailing stop or “skid.” In other words, they’re a kid-magnet, and while the line has been out for a few years now, as a 2014 Toy State Test Driver, the girls and I have been able to take the latest model for a spin, right here at Rock Father HQ. New for summer 2014, the Mini Cooper Countryman WRC joins the Dodge Ram Power Wagon, Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang 5.0 in the Road Rippers Skidders fleet.

Good size. Good construction. Engaging for play indoors and out as the little ones get to use their imagination and get active in chasing the cars around. Look for Road Rippers Skidders on the shelves at retailers such as Target, Toys R Us and Walmart right now.
