Y FLIKER CARVER SCOOTER NAMED TO THE 2013 TOYS”R”US HOLIDAY HOT TOY LIST
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT TOYS”R”US STORES NATIONWIDE AND ONLINE AT TOYSRUS.COM/YVOLUTION BEGINNING OCTOBER 1, 2013
In 2012, Yvolution started a scooter revolution with the introduction of its innovative Y Fliker(TM) Flow Series of self-propelling three-wheeled scooters, forever changing the way kids scoot. New for 2013, Yvolution unveils its Y Fliker Carver Series of performance scooters with sleek design featuring patented FLEX technology. Kids looking for a more extreme ride can carve, drift and even 360 with enhanced stability and control, allowing riders to turn on a dime. Toys”R”Us has already named the Y Fliker Carver scooter to its 2013 Holiday Hot Toy List, a title reserved for the toys that kids from all corners of the country are expected to be most excited about. Y Fliker Carver scooters, which are available in two sizes, will be available exclusively at Toys”R”Us stores nationwide and online at www.Toysrus.com/Yvolution beginning October 1, 2013. Yvolution, makers of fun, high-quality, innovative and safe ride-ons, will have an extensive range of products available at Toys”R”Us this holiday season, allowing toddlers to teens to experience “Life through Motion” at every stage.
Since 2009, Yvolution (www.Yvolution.com) has launched new products successfully in more than 40 countries worldwide. Its award-winning Y Fliker scooter was named the number-one-selling outdoor toy in the UK in 2011, and was one of the hottest and hardest to find toys when introduced in the U.S. for holiday season in 2012. The company is also known for its three-wheeled, European-style Y Glider scooters, which feature Yvolution’s patented “Lean to Steer” technology. In addition, the company’s global product portfolio includes ride-ons, balance bikes, go-karts, trick scooters and skateboards, offering toddlers through adults “Life through Motion” at every stage.
Y Fliker Carver scooters have new-tech casters for quicker propulsion and spinning fun; footplates with superior grip for drifting and carving; and a twist & fold mechanism for easy transport and storage. Parents can choose from two different Y Fliker Carver models to suit their child’s age:
Y Fliker C1 Carver (Stage 3: Primary)
Ages 5+ (max weight 220 lbs); Available in black/red.
Y Fliker C3 Carver (Stage 4: Pre-teen)
Ages 7+ (max weight 220 lbs); Available in black/blue.
“Y Fliker fans are in for the ride of a lifetime with our new Y Fliker Carver scooters!” said Thomas O’Connell, Global CEO,
Yvolution. “Thanks to special FLEX technology, kids will be able to master the tightest turns, reach even greater speeds, and perform extreme carving and drifting unlike any other scooter.”
How to ride: Like the Y Fliker Flow Series of scooters, the three-wheeled, self-propelling Y Fliker Carver scooters are all kid-powered. Using the same motions as downhill skiing, riders only need to move their hips and legs from side to side to get going and keep moving. FLEX technology allows kids to accelerate faster, maintain balance at greater speeds, and make sharp turns with a smaller turn radius by simply leaning the handlebars using their arms. To put mom’s mind at ease, padded handgrips and a quick-response hand brake ensure every ride is a safe ride.
