Little Tikes Pillow Racer Lady Bug Review

My kids adore ride-on toys, especially ones mom will let them ride in the house on the hard wood. We have another brand ride on, but with two kids wanting to ride at the same time we welcomed a second. When our Pillow Racer came in the mail I couldn’t get the photos taken quick enough for their liking.


This fun riding toy can be used as a cuddly stuffed animal and pillow! Ride it, race it, love it! The stable base and easy-to-grip handle make the Ladybug Pillow Racer a super-fun indoor riding toy.



• No hardware required for assembly!
• Easy grip handle
• Soft, cushion body
• Caster wheels allow for easy, quick turns
• Ladybug cover easily removes from the base for cuddling or washing
• Maximum number of kids: 1
• Maximum weight limit up to 50lbs.
• Pillow is hand wash only



This little lady bug was simple and quick to put together. Her padding makes the seat a comfortable spot for little tooshies and the rolling casters make getting around easy and fun.


When I first read about the Pillow Racers I had visions of much younger children playing on them. I had intentions of gifting this to a younger cousin, but after watching my three and five year old having a blast on it I think it’s a keeper! The weight limit is a generous 50 pounds, which should allow Emma (age 5) to play on it for at least another 4-6 months. Ethan is just at 40 pounds at almost 4 years old. He can continue to use it for quick some time. It’s a simple concept that allows the kids to scoot around (feet powered) with an adorable and soft exterior. I have found that some of the simplest concepts are the best toys!



You can purchase a Lady Bug Pillow Racer for $39.99
