A hybrid of a snowmobile and the traditional bicycle, this toy allows the user to pedal over huge snow drifts with ease. The rear-mounted pedal-powered tred gives the user lots of traction that is not possible with a standard wheel, making travel easy. The removable skis allow use in mud/dirt without damage.

This toy is based on friction and how the larger contact surface of the tred/skis allow it to move through the snow while not falling through. Construction would be a bit difficult seeing as how the frame would need to be made from welded tubes, and a custom designed tred would have to be developed.

This toy is intented for children 8 years of age or older, but it will be most heavily marketed towards teenagers.
