Everytime a family rides past our house on their bikes, Ronnie looks longingly at them. When we passed a bicycle display at Target, he got a sad look on his face.
But then we saw a commercial on TV for the Razor Go-Cart. It's electric and does not require the use of the rider's legs or feet. The throttle, the steering and the brake are all hand-controlled. And, it's so low to the ground that Ronnie won't be able to tip over and fall out.
He got so excited the first time he saw it on TV, and then every subsequent time, he would sign "I love that"! So how could I refuse when my 19 year old son, Chip, found out that Toys R Us had one in stock.
We took Ronnie to the store to make sure the Razor was the right size for him, and it was. In fact, the specs say a person up to 140 pounds can ride. Ronnie is slightly less than 100 pounds. He scooted out of his wheelchair and climbed into the Razor. The store could have turned off all their lights because Ronnie's smile lit up the world!
And of course, we had to have to coolest helmet and the blue mirror sunglasses to complete to look!
