It is a well known fact that kids learn from the moment they are born and much of it is achieved through moving about and being active. Happy Hopperz is just the thing to get your little ones moving about, being active and above all learning. By bouncing about they are able to learn how to balance properly, and develop an awareness of space, other people and kids, as well as themselves.
Of course we may see it as a learning exercise, but for the kids it is fun, pure unadulterated play time and whist they play we see them develop social skills, improve their coordination and their fitness as well as getting their imagination running.
Now, the best bit is how much these Happy Hopperz have changed since our day when they were round balls with two handles, now they are cute animals, vehicles and more. We particularly love the Reindeer Happy Hopper, it is just adorable.
They are strong, wearable, safe and exciting for the kids, helping to keep them healthy and happy.
Available from Happy Hopperz for £21.99
