Hop & Squeak Pogo Jumper

Spring 2012 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Price: $15.00

Since taking the Hop & Squeak Pogo Jumper out of the box, we have had nothing but fun with it. Both 3- and 4-year-olds were able to operate this non-traditional pogo stick without any difficulty once we assisted them a few times and showed them how to use it. These were little ones who we can't imagine have developed the coordination to have any success on a traditional pogo stick. We've experimented with using this toy both indoors and outdoors and we've found it works best on either the kitchen floor or the deck. For children who are young and still a bit wobbly, parent testers hesitated to let them use it on hard tile surfaces or the driveway. Although a safer option, we found the Pogo Jumper does not bounce well on the carpet or grass.

We recommend that with preschool aged children, this toy should only be used with adult supervision and appropriate safety equipment. Although testers haven't had any accidents, we think precaution is a good idea.
