This set is great! I searched and searched for a "skip ball" that wasn't too heavy. My 8-yr old daughter had one that broke within 15 mins of figuring out how to use it because the woven ball was too heavy and it flew right off. These are more like wiffle balls, so they are a good weight. The price/value is great, too. I figured even if one broke, we would have 5 more. As it turns out, friends love to join in! Even my 5-yr old can do it! This would be a good set for schools for P.E. class.
My granddaughter loves playing with this when she comes over my house. So glad I got the six pack because when she visits all the kids on the street come over to play. Everyone has one this way!!
My students love these. Even my boys love using them because it helps with their coordination. Sometimes they have challenges to see who can get the most rotations. Love having students use these as a fun way to exercise without worrying about injury. Obviously we have rules about equipment, but that's not been a problem. We've only used them for a month before school was let out, but they seem pretty sturdy. We'll have to see how long they last with the new school year. They're not that expensive. I'd buy more in the future.
I have always loved these as a child and still do! However, these are difficult for children these days. For most children 6 and younger, this is nearly impossible for. The ring is too big, their feet slip out and the movement itself is difficult for this age group. For most children 6-9, these are the just right challenge! It requires endurance, so children who love to run around and move love this product, others find it to be too challenging at any age. For children 9-late teens, they enjoy it, but sometime become board with it, and with sneakers on, it can difficult to slip the ring over. I ordered 2 packs and none of the plastic edges were sharp. On another note, try to wear high socks when using these, the plastic ring does rub on your leg and some children need a little extra padding. So far many children of different ages have loved to use these, they are durable, and it is a great way to improve a child's endurance, coordination and strength.
Work well! Recommend wearing shoes when using these. The rings stay on the ankles only by getting the toy to spin on the ankle like a hula hoop. If the spinning toy loses momentum, much like a hula hoop, it falls down. If not wearing shoes, the ring will slip under your foot and stepping on the hard plastic ring with bare or socked foot is kind of painful. It takes a little practice to get the toy going, but its not too difficult. Kids pick up on it quickly. Fun!
These are terrific. My daughter has taken them to school multiple times in the past three months and everyone loves them. All the other brands have broken when they were taken to school, but these have done great. Some comments have said they don't work well because the balls aren't very heavy, but our kids (and the kids at the school) haven't had any trouble with that.
