I am a 90s baby and I might be biased but we definitely had the best toys growing up. Over 20 years later, some of those toys are making a come back.
It does feel strange to hear my children ask for toys that I would have asked my family for when I was younger! Seeing toys that brought me so much joy, bring joy to my children is actually really lovely to see.
One toy that I can remember very well was Jump It: Lap Counter.
I can’t remember if that was exact name back then but the hit toy is back and it is pretty much exactly the same, which I love!
Naturally, I had to have a go. You know, nostalgia!
Then Elsa wanted to try it out, she is the perfect age to give it a go.
The Jump It: Lap Counter helps improve fitness, co-ordination and stamina while being fun. So Jump It is a hoop that goes on to your ankle and from that hoop is rope with a ball on the end. You use skipping motions and the Jump It goes round your foot and you jump over with your other foot. A bit like skipping.
The ball at the end of the rope has a lap counter so you can keep count with how many laps you have done and trust me, it gets competitive!
The Jump It: Lap Counter is available now from Argos!
