Dareway: A Segway Scaled Down For The Little Tike
This kid may look like he's having fun, but he's actually screaming at his off-camera father in a mix of agonizing horror and sheer shock. "Daddy why did you get me a toy crafted after such an obsolete and inconsequential device?! I wanted a bike!!" All lil' Jimmy got for his birthday this year was a slow, awkward trip to the mockery of his morning preschool class. We feel your pain, Jimmy.
Jimmy sure didn't approve of this nod to the Segway, but I just know there's two or three fans of the original Segway out there that are going to test the waters with their own children. If so, the device is a 12-V battery-powered vehicle that operates with a simple foot-pedal accelerator and thumb-driven directional buttons. If your child has never seen the original Segway or the nerds that ride them, he should enjoy a ride on this baby in ignorant bliss. Just in case, though, you better buy a back-up Power Wheels or bike. The Dareway can travel forwards, backwards and even side to side, so you'll have a number of ways to ride it into the dark "what was I thinking" corner of the garage or shed.
The Dareway is available now and retails for 150 pounds, or around $227. In addition to the boys' model that Jimmy is so desperately trying to dismount from, a pink and purple version is available for girls.
