Bouncing Buddies

Introducing... Bouncing Buddies. A clever redesign of the much loved moon-hoppers of the 1970's into a herd of amazingly cute inflatable bouncy animals for toddlers and preschoolers to keep them active and using their imaginations. Bouncing Buddy will help them learn balance and coordination, develop strength and confidence and have fun playing together. Each Buddy has been specially designed with child ergonomics in mind: long ears or horns for a strong grip, a contoured body for good balance and robust feet to steady the bounce. Bouncing Buddies are New Zealands original animal hoppers, suitable for 12+ months of age (adult supervision required). They are made from 100% eco-friendly and non-toxic PVC (phthalate free) and come with a quality guarantee
 
Things to do with your Bouncing Buddy
 
Animal Hoppers are a very special kind of toy because they facilitate play… and play is very important because it is how these little ones process information and make sense of the world. Bouncing Buddies are the perfect catalyst for hours of play and imagination – take our fun challenge and try some of our Fun Games and Imagination Builders:
See if your little one can bounce to the music. Choose a lively song with a variation in rhythm. Can they keep up with the music? Challenge them to stop when the music stops, and to start again when you press play. This game becomes even more fun with friends. Try musical bouncers, so when the music stops swap Buddies. Who will be the last one bouncing?
Get your toddler comfortable on their new Bouncing Buddy. See if they can bounce in a circle. Then a square. Then a triangle. Challenge them to bounce forwards and then backwards. See if they can bounce to the left, and then to the right. And once they have mastered all of these moves, give them a few simple sequences to try out. I.e. bounce in a circle, and then five bounces forward, three bounces to the left and finish with a triangle. Ready for the next game?
 
Ask your toddler… what does your Buddy get up to when you’re not around, i.e. at night when everyone is sleeping? If your Buddy could talk, what would they have to tell you? What does your Buddy like to eat – design an imaginary menu for them
