Introducing Two Fun, New Ride-On Animals: Rory & Peanut!

Some of the most exciting days at Radio Flyer happen when we launch new products. Understandably, we’re extra-thrilled to introduce this duo — Rory: Electric Ride-On Lion with Sounds and Peanut: Electric Ride-On Elephant with Sounds. Powered by a 6V battery, these loveable ride-on animals travel up to two miles per hour and they feature irresistible, plush fabric and a padded head perfect for hugs and cuddles.

With a press of the music button, the animals make real lion and elephant sounds, as well as play fun music.

 

“We selected a lion and elephant for ride-on toys after researching which animals are popular with kids – but not overdone,” says Sam, Product Development Engineer at Radio Flyer. “We wanted to stay away from trends that might go away soon, so we gravitated towards classic and timeless animals.”

 

With a press of the music button, the animals make real lion and elephant sounds, as well as play fun music.

 

“Both Rory and Peanut have sound modules that play four different sounds and songs when the button is pressed,” says Sam. “Working at a toy company is inherently fun, but I will say gathering to listen and analyze a variety of lion roars was extra fun.”

 

 

The smooth wheels are safe for indoor use. Meanwhile, the push-to-go button on the handlebar provides easy control and the footrests ensure comfort. Fortunately, the fun never has to end — the ride-ons easily charge through a charging port that’s located on the footrest. With a maximum weight capacity is 50 pounds, these loveable friends are geared toward kids age 2-5 years old.
