Not a real pogo stick, it uses a foam block and rubber band – but suitable even for 3 years old. And older ones or parents can try it as well.
Compared to other models:
The best pogo stick for toddlers and young kids 3, 4 or 5 years old should be perfectly safe and easy to use – so most people choose a foam jumper instead of a classical pogo stick with spring inside. There is no hard part on them and they also don’t enable any big jumps so it’s almost impossible for the toddlers to hurt themselves. And learning how to bounce on them is really easy.
But some kids find them boring and want to experience a true pogo action, so we have added two classical sticks to the comparison as well:
|Type||Price||UK CA||Our rating||For||Weight limit||Age||Jump height||Weight||Height||Warranty|
|Foam + rubber band||$14.95||250 lbs||3+||0.5-1 ft||1 lbs||N/A||N/A|
|Foam + rubber band||$19.95||250 lbs||3+||0.5-1 ft||0.85 lbs||N/A||N/A|
|Classical||$81.74||60 lbs||5-8||1-2 ft||6.4 lbs||N/A||N/A|
|Classical||from $29.65*||40-80 lbs||5-9||1-2 ft||6 lbs||36"||1 year|
* depends on color variation
Both the Kidoozie and My First Flybar use the same design – a foam block with rubber band and handles, practically the only difference is that the Flybar is available in 3 different color – red, blue and pink. And what’s interesting is that thanks to the foam, there is almost no weight limit so even older kids or parents can try it as well.
On the other hand, the Grow-to-Pro from Fisher-Price is a classical jumping stick – but with an interesting concept: there is a large base for easier learning and when your kid gets comfortable, you just remove it and use the rubber tip.
The Maverick from Flybar is a popular and high quality model – the frame is covered in foam for additional comfort and safety and there are many color variations to choose from. However, the minimum weight of the rider should be at least 40 pounds so it’s not a classical toddler pogo stick.
