Feel the magic come to life in the Dynacraft
Disney Princess Carriage! This fairy tale ride
began in a collaborative class project between
Dynacraft Bike and 20 select students from
Savannah College of Art and Design. Product
history and market research led to the insight
that girls have been an underserved and
overlooked market when it comes to ride-on
vehicles. Over the past thirty years, despite
dozens of models designed for boys, the
formula for girls has remained the same: make
it pink and put a Barbie sticker on it. We
thought that every little princess deserves an
elegant and enchanting experience, whether on
her way to the ball or in the backyard. A fully
enclosed cabin, magic wand ignition key, and
18-inch injection molded wheels, are just a few
of the many innovative details that make this
product a first of its kind and a top seller this
holiday season.
