Wheely Bug was created in Australia in 1995 by a couple looking to start their own business. After witnessing their neighbours’ 1 year old son becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of control he had over his fixed wheel ride on vehicle whenever anything blocked his path, they came up with the innovative idea of designing a ride on toy with multi directional castors. After settling on animals as a theme for these new ride on toys, they began to design and develop a prototype of the now famous ladybird Wheely Bug. After passing the required safety tests, they began producing 50 Wheely Bugs per week from home, selling them all to Child Care Centres until a toy shop saw one and placed an order for 12. Wheely Bug went into full production supplying retail shops across Australia as word of this revolutionary new ride on toy spread and its popularity grew fast. In 2000 Wheely Bug began exporting across the globe and production moved to an ethical factory in China. Today the Wheely Bug is very well known and the range has expanded to include many different animals. Toddlers and young children everywhere love the ease with which they can whizz about on these bright friendly animal characters.
