was pleased to be sent the Zoingo Boingo
outdoor toy (RRP £24) to review
with the weather warming I like encouraging the boys outdoors in the sunshine
to burn off some energy, have fun and exercise.
think its good to have an appealing selection of outdoor toys and this one is a
complete change to everything they own already, so a welcome novelty when
playing outdoors. It is aimed at 8
years plus, it does take some time to master, getting your balance right to
hop, jump and bounce around the garden.
eldest is 8 and he got a bit frustrated when he could not do it straight away
but he kept coming back and is doing much better now. My 7 year old on the other hand was surer of himself from the
onset and just got on with it.

made sure they wore helmets, I liked how helmets feature on the toy packaging
it means you have less of a battle on your hands getting your own children to
wear their helmets.
Zoingo Boingo can be used on pavement or grass so a great addition
to your garden whatever type you have!
It’s quite quick and easy to inflate the toy; I liked how it came with a
card to guide you how big the ball needed to be.
The boys have been returning to play on this every day. We
have not quite got to the leaps and spins yet but I am sure they will be more
ambitious as they grow in confidence. Usually they are outside on
scooters or bikes but the Zoingo Boingo is ideal for helping with
agility if you have the determination to stick with it.
I think for the price it’s a well-made quality toy, but hang in
there if your child does not take to it instantly, it does require a bit of
practise but before you know it they will be hopping around the garden like a
pro! Even with the odd tantrum they cannot help but keep coming back to
try again until they get to grips with it.
If you have any birthdays coming up soon this is an affordable present
that will provide welcome amusement over the warmer months ahead!
