At a friends' house this past weekend, the toy of choice was one I had never seen, The Flying Turtle. The girls and boys ages 2 to 7 were enthralled. Even better, room for injury was minimal. Low to ground, the children put their feet up on the handle bars and steer. I couldn't believe they moved anywhere but they did. Turns out it was designed by a retired Boeing engineer for his grandson in the 1970s. Clearly I can't claim a brand new discovery, but I hope it will put some of you ahead for the holidays!
