Mookie Peppa Pig Sit n Bounce
Advantages: Very well made
Disadvantages: None for us
We actually purchased 2 of these one for my son and one for my daughter in the summer as we had been to a party and they had loved them so we decided to add them to our outdoor toy collection. They cost us around £6 each and as they come in a light blue colour they can be used for boys and girls which is good as it means they could have the same toy without arguments.
The space hoppers arrived and they are very easy to inflate we have an electric pump so within a minute they were both ready to go. When inflated we noticed 1 was actually bigger than the other we thought maybe we had added more air to one but after inspecting it seems that they are actually 2 different sizes not greatly but enough to notice although this was actually really good as this meant my eldest son could have the larger one and my daughter got the smaller one.
On the front of each of these there is a printed picture of Peppa and George pig bouncing on balls themselves which my children love. As it is bright and attractive it means it is one of the first things that stand out so any Peppa pig fan will love this.
The ball is wide enough so children can easily sit on top of it and the handles are rather large and chunky so little one can get a good grip. They have small indents on them so it provides more grip for them I did worry they may be a little large for my daughter's hands but actually they are perfect for her. Unlike the picture above ours actually have a t-bar at the top of the handles joining them together and making it a lot easier for smaller children to get a good grip.
The jumper is so very easy to clean as it is made of a wipe able material all you need is a damp cloth and it comes up as good as new. There are no signs of wear although it has been used indoors and out it has been very durable and shows no signs of wear.
My children also like to try and use these as a ball although rather large to play catch it still entertains them time after time rolling them along and trying to pick them up and throw them that or dragging them behind them pretending they are walking a dog great to help their imaginations run wild.
I think these are great they help children learn about balance and my children never seem to get bored with it they find new ways to play every time they go on it and it is well loved by older visitors who come to play also. An all round fantastic toy that last for years would strongly recommend. They can be used in doors and out and are extremely durable all round my children have used it on many different outside surfaces and I have survived them all.
This bouncer is recommended from age 3 plus but my daughter received this when she was 2 and she was just the right size for it my 4 year old son also is able to sit comfortably on it and he can bounce just as well so they are very good at lasting through a good age range.
I loved my space hopper when I was a child and now my children love theirs I am sure these will last for my youngest son for when he is big enough and also hopefully my expected little girl for when she grows up and is big enough to use it for the price of £6 I think these are brilliant.
Summary: A fantasic space hopper for my children
