Are your kids too young to operate the pedals of their tricycle? Well then Hammacher Schlemmer has the toy for you this holiday season — The Centrifugal Force Ride-On Car.

The horribly named bike allows your toddler to power the bike by spinning the steering wheel. According to the web site, the bike will go up to 8 feet per second (a little less than 6 miles per hour) for a fun, safe journey.

Toddlers can break by ceasing to spin the wheel and putting their feet on the ground. AKA running into a wall.

This bike was the winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum award, so you know there’s a good chance this concept actually works.

It’s available now for only $79.95.

And the good news for us big kids? The bike can support up to 220 lbs.
