Winter Sleds

Verywell Family / Kevin Liang

The best snow days are packed with sledding, snowman-building, and mugs full of hot cocoa. Though there are plenty of fun winter activities for kids, we're partial to sledding with friends or siblings. However, there are many kinds of sleds on the market, so it’s important to find the best fit for your family's needs.

Whether you’re looking for a high-tech sled with a fancy steering system or a simple plastic toboggan, there are lots of great after-Christmas sales on some of our favorite sleds. Right now, you can snag one for the snow-loving kiddo in your life for up to 50% off.

Kiddos ages 4 and up will enjoy playing in the snow with this classic plastic sled, which is available in three colors. The flexible plastic is coated with a cold-resistant treatment for use in chilly weather, and a pull rope makes it easy for little ones to pull the sled back up the hill for another run. Handles on either side of the sled help kids stay upright and balanced as they play.

If your kid wants to take their sled to the park or a friend’s house, you’re in luck. “This is an excellent sled with the perfect dimensions to fit into the trunk of my 4-door passenger car,” according to one reviewer.

Kiddos can sled in style with this tricked-out bobsled. It provides a safer sledding experience thanks to its steering system: The car-like steering wheel is easy for kids to grip and turn, helping them guide the sled carefully down the hill. For additional safety, there is a hand brake that allows kiddos to control their speed and even stop the sled. 

The plastic two-person seat is coated with an anti-slip treatment to keep little ones ages 3 and up in place, and a retractable tow rope makes trips back up the hill easier. Plus, caregivers will appreciate that assembly requires no tools—the parts simply snap together.

Designed for years of use, this heavy-duty snow tube is built to stand up to even the most rough-and-tumble of play. The rigid base helps navigate over bumps and branches without puncturing the tube and can withstand temperatures as low as -40F. Made from 600-denier polyester, the top also protects the rubber tube from punctures and comes in several fun patterns, though it’s currently on sale in the Ripe Plum Sketchy color only.

For portability, there is a built-in pull rope and carrying handles on either side of the tube, which is available in two sizes: regular and extra-large. Note that the tube does not arrive inflated.
