Now this is a fun idea we can get behind! Trisha Cleveland of Minnesota has invented the SlideRider, a foldable mat that turns your indoors stairs into a fun slide! To make it safe for kids, the product is designed with bumpers so they can't slide out.Who hasn't created a slide for stairs when they were a child? After thinking about how kids use mattresses and sleeping bags to transform their stairs into indoors slides, Trisha thought, why not give this activity an upgrade?The best part is that the bright red and blue slide folds right up into its base and is held in place with an easy storage strap. With the tagline, “The Inside Slide,” why wouldn't this be flying off of shelves? In fact, can they make these for adults?Trisha is currently working with website Quirky to make this project a reality. You can learn more about this product, here.
This behind the scenes video with Quirky talks about how the development of SlideRider, including fun testing the fun stair slide.
