A Jumping Christmas: Active Toy Review

Monday, December 30, 2013

If there is a child between 3 and 8 in your life, let me perhaps be the first to recommend you get a Super Skipper, pictured above. My grandkids love it! The 3 year old waits until it taps her to jump, but it doesn't hurt and she thoroughly enjoys it. The 6 year old goes wild jumping and tries different styles, like 2 feet together and one at a time, jumping stationary vs. jumping in circles, running through the room through the skipper, one footed, etc.

And I've burned a few calories on this thing, too! Fun, fun, fun!!

    Looks like such fun. Must get one for son's family (girls are 2 & 5) and daughter's kids (4, 9, 10). Woohoo...thanks!

    I got a skip-it for one of my granddaughters for Christmas. This looks like fun for more than one kid (or adult) at a time.

    Looks cool! Reminds me of the skip-it, except it can be used indoors.

    Thanks so much for sharing. Looks like a wonderful gift for our grandkids who aren't getting enough exercise. I will ask DH to look into it for them.
Happy New Year Marsha!

    Sort of like skipping rope without the rope pulling down the chandeliers!

    I love active toys for kids; this one looks great! Thought I was past this stage but now I have a GREAT grandbaby coming in May! We know how fast they grow!

  I have a fear of jumping due to a previous injury, this might be just the ticket!

    What a great toy for physical activity. I may have to get one for my classroom. Many of my students find jumping difficult and this looks like it may help. Thanks!
