You can get cheapo molded plastic sleds now for like 3 bucks that at least have handles to hold onto.  Seen some at walmart last week.

Well if you liked that link a couple posts up, you'll like this.
Before I tell ya what it is, I gotta confess as to how I learned of it. :-X
I was over at my folkks place a bit ago and wanted to see the video as it just takes to long to open it at home.
Opened it and my kid brother runs over and says "oh cool, can I play?". smiley_headscratch
He goes on to tell me they do this all the time at school. smiley_headscratch
Video ends and he tells me to go to this website...............

Line Rider had quite a few different ones on utube.
Some had songs attached to the sled ride, some didn't. ;)

OK!  I can see that I'm going to have to put some control on my time with this thing.
