Watch Out - This Toy May Ruin Your Carpets:

While watching TV the other day with my kids, Jordan & Katie, I saw a commercial advertising a new toy called "Fun Slides". It is a simple device, made from hard plastic and velcro. You strap it to the bottom of your shoe, or foot, using the velcro strap, then you run down the hallway and slide your way into the living room. It probably is a lot of fun for the kids but it will damage your carpets.

When a person runs across the floor then slides across the carpet they are creating a tremendous amount of friction and heat which will damage the carpet. A tremendous amount of Force is placed on the carpet, not to mention the padding, and over time the carpet will become matted and the color will be permanently damaged. Residential carpets were NOT designed to be run on. Not to mention the potential for collateral damage - knocking over vases, planters, etc.

I am sure this toy is fun to play with not to mention the amount of exercise your children will be receiving while using it. However, I do not believe the average home is the best place for it. Maybe an auditorium were there are open spaces, or maybe a church hall. I hope this review has been helpful to you. If you have questions please feel free to give me a call at (916) 525-2456.

Until Next Time -
