I was contacted by Monkey Business Sports a week or two ago, telling me that they had products that they thought would be perfect for a family like ours. Interested and intrigued to find out what they offered...I replied back very curious and excited. After checking out their fantastic website, I found toys that our whole family truly would enjoy playing with. Toys that resemble some that I played with when I was little. Traditional fun for the whole family. These toys required a little bit of work & activity on our part for them to be fun & enjoyable, but are worth the added effort.
So they sent us a product called "Stomp Walkers" to review. This took me back to my childhood when we used to try walking on stilts. This version is much safer than the type we used when I was little (if I remember right, they were metal). These Stomp Walkers are made out of plastic and foam. When the box arrived, I couldn't wait to get them put together (assembly only too about a minute, once I had the tools ready) and watch my kids go to work trying to figure out how to use them. Makes me giggle inside a little...cause walking on stilts, or "stomp walkers" can be quite a bit of a challenge. You must have balance and coordination to get them up and moving.
My 8 year old was the first to try it. I figured that he would probably have the easiest time figuring it out. He was a little shaky at first, but got the hang of it pretty good after a few seconds.
Then the 5 year old hopped on and tried them out...she struggled a little more than my 8 year old but loved every second of it.
Of course, then my 3 year old had to give it a shot. She's going to have to work at it to get them to move right, but they all had a great time trying.
I am very impressed. I have to admit...I even tried them out. The weight limitations on the box says 100 pounds, however, being that I weigh a shy over that...I thought I'd try it and see if I could do it. They worked for me and my childhood memories swamped my mind. LOL!
I am so convinced that you're going to be impressed with the fantastic & fun toy selection at Monkey Business Sports. They are so excited too, and because of that, they are offering (1) Lucky viewer the chance to win a pair of Stomp Walkers for their own family to try out. Want to win?
