The Walkaroo Jr. Stilts by Air Kicks are the perfect make and model for my 8-year-old son, but these would be most excellent for a girl or a boy. My favorite thing? They're a CINCH to put together.
The stilts are made of light weight aluminum and they hold up to 110 lbs. They raise the walker up to 12" off of the ground. That's just enough to be fun, but still enough to be able to recover from potential tilts and tumbles.
If you're looking for a present to get someone that's going to be remembered (and used year round) I think these stilts could definitely be the way to go.

WALKAROO Jr. Balance Stilts are made of sturdy aluminum, making them easier to carry and maneuver for younger children. The footrest can move higher for more challenge as kids gain balancing skills.
This pair is packed with unique features that make for a thrililng and fun physical activity for anyone up to 110 lbs. The ergonomically correct design positions young stilt-walkers within a more natural, upright posture than other models on the market. WALKAROO JR. Balance Stilts also feature non-marking, no-slip rubber feet and footrests, plus comfortable foam cushioning on the handles and shoulder rests to encourage hours of active play.
