Since the 1920s, when the pogo stick first appeared, kids of all ages have tried to master the skill and balance necessary to bounce. The Jumparoo Boing! is available in three sizes so siblings and friends of different heights and ages can all experience the action. The Jr. holds 40-80 lbs., the Small holds 44-85 lbs., and the Large holds 86-160 lbs.
The improved, high-quality design has four handgrips to accommodate different heights. The Jr. has a T-shaped handle and is lighter than the other styles; the Small and Large each have a U-shaped handle. After a little bit of practice, kids can get the Jumparoo Boing! bouncing up to 2 feet high!
The Small and Large Jumparoo Boing! are both for ages 6 and up.
Available Styles Small and Large come in red or blue; we’ll choose for you.
History behind the pogo stick: A German man named George Hansburg originally exported a wooden pogo stick to the US-based Gimble Brothers Department Store back in 1920. Unfortunately, the wood rotted and warped on its ocean journey, so he contacted a toy designer to improve the design with an all-metal, enclosed-spring pogo stick, and patented his design.
To promote the toy, Hansburg was able to teach the famous Ziegfield's Follies how to pogo. The Follies' pogo antics inspired people everywhere to jump on the trend, creating all kinds of pogo tricks and stunts.
