I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Our weather has been fabulous so we are spending more and more time outside playing. Usually it involves lots of playtime in our driveway. The Sparkler Whip ‘N Skip and the Sparkler LED Jump Rope from GEOSPACE have become instant hits with Big Sis. Since they light up she really likes to play with them after dinner and right before bed so they can see it all lit up!
The new Sparkler Whip ‘N Skip reminds me of the one I had growing up in the 80's. This new version will have have a whole new generation hopping. Once kids tether it to one leg, they can begin rolling the ball in a circular pattern. With this comes the challenge of maintaining balance, endurance and coordination, and a healthy dose of competition to see who can keep going for the longest. It requires 2 AAA batteries. I was unsure if Big Sis would be able to do it but after me getting it started for her a few times she quickly got the hang of it.
The new Sparkler LED Jump Rope modernizes the classic jump rope for kids. It has flashing LED multi-colored lights, which are embedded inside of the jump rope. What’s even better is that no batteries are required, as the dynamo produces low-voltage electricity that powers the LEDs. The Sparkler is 99 inches long, which is ideal for children 8 years old to adults as well.
Every time we play with these I always get up and play with them too. These are get up and move fun for adults and kids. Summer is coming so get some toys that get the whole family outside having fun!
