Inspired by its many young customers who emulate Sixty60 delivery drivers, Checkers has just launched a brand new Sixty60 ride-on bike – complete with the familiar teal delivery box that opens and closes.
Locally made in Cape Town, the bikes – which are suitable for children aged 3 to 10 years – feature customisable number plates, and retail for only R399 in selected Checkers supermarkets.
“Customers have shared so many heartwarming photos of their kids using plastic ride-on scooters as Sixty60 delivery bikes,” says Neil Schreuder, chief strategy officer for the Shoprite Group. “This appreciation for our Sixty60 delivery drivers, who work tirelessly to make sure orders are delivered safely and on time, inspired the rollout of what is sure to become a classic toy.”
Checkers has also re-released its Sixty60 1:12 scale-model toy motorbike, and this year there is an accompanying toy delivery driver for the first time. These are available on the Sixty60 app and in selected Checkers supermarkets, retailing for only R99 and R49, respectively, while stock lasts.
