TV Psychologist, Dr Phil, purchased this carousel as a gift for his granddaughter’s 1st birthday party in Beverly Hills.  While they chose a circus theme, we could customize a luxury carousel with any theme the buyer chooses.

POLARIS Kiddie Ride

January 27th, 2011

This is a fun project our friends at Country Equipment in Oklahoma City sent.  They mounted a real Polaris 50 on a kiddie ride body and mechanism.  They said the ride is a huge hit for kids and adults.  They advertise the ride as a “Free Polaris Test Drive”.  Likewise, we can provide a  ride base that would have mechanics, sound, timer, etc. so you could make your own kiddie ride, too!

Utah State Patrol

August 30th, 2010

This is a fun ride project we just finished national advertising agency RR Partners and their client..the Utah Highway Patrol. They’re using it in a drunk driving campaign. See the feature below on ABC News and on Fox News on how the UTP is using the police car ride.  The Fox clip also shows the creative director at RR Partners describing why they chose a kiddie ride as part of their campaign.  As you can see, a kiddie ride certainly generated a lot of free publicity for their campaign.

This is a fun project we just completed for the Vancouver Aquarium.  They wanted a frog ride painted to look like a Northern Leopard frog.  This is just another example of the customization work we do here everyday at KRUSA.

US Navy Test Pilot School (USNTPS) class 136 graduated on December 12th 2009 in Patuxent River Maryland. For their class gift they all pitched together with their own funds and purchased a fully functional jet plane kiddie ride from Kiddie Rides USA painted to look just like their training jets (see below).  Each pilot even autographed the nose of the plane!

Kids Hair Salon Chairs

December 4th, 2009

These are two custom kids hair salon chairs we made for Stylin Kidz Cutz in Springfield, MO. They have an underwater theme so we made salon chairs by mounting the fiberglass bodies off of two of our boat and marine themed kiddie rides on hydraulic lifts. They turned out spectacular!
