Happy Hopperz are like space hoppers only better. They are designed for the under threes, come in animal shapes and bright colours.
We were sent a red cow for Boy Three to have a go on. Now, Boy Three is an energetic and curious individual who is better kept entertained because if he gets bored anything can happen.
Toddlers are particularly bouncy creatures, so to create a toy that runs on bounce but doesn’t cost the earth or require trailing around in the rain seems like a work of genius.
What is it? It’s an inflatable cow designed to be sat on and bounced by small people. They can bounce either in one place or, Boy Three’s preferred option, on the move.
Do kids like it? Oh yes. There were fights over it despite Boy Three’s brothers being far too old and large for it.
Do parents like it? Yup. No bits, no mess and children wearing themselves out. Ideal.
Will they still like it in a week? I reckon so. It’s quite a good toy to chuck in the car for trips to Granny’s as it’s an excellent way to get them to burn off some energy.
Anything that’s not good? Just wondering why they don’t do them in adult sizes. I could see that catching on – in fact ad agencies would be rushing to chuck out the chairs and have their ‘creatives’ sitting on them.
Worth the money? I’d say so. If you’re struggling for gift ideas for little ones that won’t drive the parents potty, Happy Hopperz are perfect.
