There's A Counter On This Ball...


OK, another blast from the past! Remember the Skip-It?? I spent thousands of hours on my driveway with my best friend and our trusty Skip-Its – I want one now!!! I wish I could remember my highest score…

What was your favorite “radical” toy from childhood??

Amber said...

I had a hot pink one...it was my favorite toy ever. I used to "skip it" to school rather than walk. I know, I was cool!

Niki said...

Haha! I loved those! Wish I had one now too! Bet it's a great workout:)

I remember that I got up to 999 once and I was so disappointed because that's as high as it would go, because they only had the 3 dials that turned on it.

They need to put those back out on the market, so some of these little kids can lose some weight.

Katy said...

Count me in as a little kid, too. Because I'd totally buy one for a workout now that I think about it.

I had a pink skip it! This is reminding me of pop rockers...did anyone have a pop rocker? Mine came with the song, "Walk Like an Egyptian." hahaha

jane in the waiting line said...

There was nothing cooler than the Pogo Ball. Remember that?

I loved this item. It actually had kids doing exercise without their knowledge.

SKIP-IT was my absolute FAVORITE! ♥ My younger sister and I were quite the skippin' duo growing up!

Omg your blog is giving me soooo many childhood flashbacks!! Stop being awesome!!!


We used to have skip it competitions in elementary school, and that outfit would be exactly what I'd be wearing --- half ponytail and ALL!!

Channa said...

I loved the skip-it. We had 2 and they were so much fun! That and the Hoppied Hop. (I think that is how it was spelled) Great excise too!!

Our daughter had one of those. Sort of a jump rope with a counter. I think kids now days would wonder where to plug it in, since everything is electronic (and expensive) these days.

The Hall Family said...

Mamarazzi said...
