This Dublin-based startup specializes in ride-on toys. It launched its latest innovation -- Y Fliker -- at Toys R Us stores nationwide in September.
The Y Fliker is a three-wheeled scooter that works very differently from traditional two-wheeled scooters. You don't have to kick the pavement to glide on it. Instead, the scooter is propelled as you sway your body, said Yvolution spokeswoman Analei Samaseia.
"This is a self-propelling scooter that moves when you move your body weight from side to side," she said. "It's almost like skiing. "
The foldable Y Fliker comes in three different models for kids that all have handbrakes. "We wanted this to be a family activity. So we have two models for adults as well," said Samaseia. "This is a lot of fun and it's environmentally-friendly, too."
The Tabeo tablet for kids, which features a 7-inch screen and a Wi-Fi connection, will be available at Toys R Us stores starting October 21 for $149.99.
