Air Pogo Anyone? GeoSpace Toys


The Jumparoo Air Pogo Jumper (sold at GeoSpace) is one of those toys everyone wants to play with, regardless of the suggested weight limit (wait, can I say that on here??). I know this because my granddaughter who is almost preschool-aged, likes it. My son who is in elementary school likes it, my grown kids like it, and I like it (though please note it is recommended up to age 13 only). ;) It's one of those irresistible forces that calls you to it when you see it sitting out. Why? I guess because it's unique and familiar all at the same time, and it looks like most anyone could do it with a little practice (and they can!).





Putting it together is a cinch. You simply put the red ball through the blue platform and use the enclosed air pump to inflate. Make sure you've inflated it properly and to full capacity so it doesn't slip out of the platform while you are jumping! My son put ours together and it's worked like a charm since he has (filled it).


Jumping is the fun part, of course. We took ours to the park, where my son had an absolute ball (ha!) jumping around on the concrete (it can be used inside too). Once he mastered the standard jump, he got a little crafty, trying to do various tricks and such.


Once you get to being really good at the jumps, you might get to thinking about tricks too. Just a word of warning: Don't get too cocky, too fast, or you could end up on your bum (not that it bothered my son one bit, he simply laughed and got back on). Of course you can create games, or competitions. My son was trying to see how many times he could jump, and then how many different ways he could jump. The Jumparoo Air Pogo Jumper is a fun way to get in some exercise (and it will definitely tire you out!). It's also a great way to sharpen your coordination and have a really good time!


The jumper is lightweight and easy to carry (dimensions in inches 15.38" x 3.5" x 11.5"). When my son got tuckered out, he simply set his beside a swing and then asked me to push him because he was far too tired to do so himself (ha! that lasted about ten minutes and then he was a ball of energy again). ;)

I recommend the toy.  We've had nothing but fun with it since the day it arrived. It would make a good gift item too. Learn more by visiting the GeoSpace website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Sure looks like fun, weight limit be darned lol I bet I'd be on my butt after getting too cocky too.

Sandee said...

Looks like lots of fun. I would have loved this when I was a kid. I was a tomboy and I'd have been on my bum more than once too.

Your son is handsome.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

That's really cool! I remember something similar to this when I was a girl. I had a ton of fun with it.

Colleen Lanin said...

My son would love that! He has so much energy pent up inside him, and he loves to run, jump, and generally act like a nut to get it off. Thanks!

Looks like a great toy to encourage more outdoor play for a child! I only wonder about the weight limit? Can it support children up to 60 pounds?

Masshole Mommy said...

No way!! My boys would have a BLAST with one of those!

Liz Mays said...

It sounds like this will be a lot of fun to play with all summer long. Bouncing and trying tricks should be great!

Binky said...

It does look like it would be fun.

Brandy Tanner said...

Gosh we had one of those when we were kids, but it wasn't called that. Too funny that it is coming back!! It was fun!

Pam said...

This looks like a fun toy. I would definitely want to give it a go if my granddaughter had one.

Veronica Solomon said...

that totally looks like fun! I need to get one for my son and then maybe use it too :-)

Belva said...

I don't know anything about toys but it's fun to see how much the little brown-eyed guy has grown. Be careful..... you turn your back on them for one minute and they're all grown up. Ha

He looks like he was having a great time bouncing! That looks like a toy my oldest would have loved when he was younger.

Your boy looks so happy! Not surprised. It looks like fun. Oh to be young again!

Kristi said...

I've been looking for ideas for my nephew for his birthday. This would be perfect.

Michelle Waller said...

Ok, this looks so cool. I know my kids would love something like this. Heck, even I would love something like this.

Lisa Marie said...

My cousins would get a thrill from this thing! Great way to get the kids outdoors as well - which I am totally up for nowadays.

Amanda Love said...

It sounds like a fun toy to have around especially this Spring! It's awesome to play outdoors! I think it's going to keep the kids occupied for hours.

Toni | Boulder Locavore said...

That looks so much fun!! My son will surely enjoy this!!

Menwada CC said...

Oh my goodness I've tried this and loved it! Bought lots for school to mess about with at play time! Gorgeous idea! Thank you :)

S. Graham said...

This toy or a toy like it has been around for a while. I remember them when I was young! So much fun!

Melissa Chapman said...

I am sure my son would love that Air pogo Jumper and he is 12. I do have some younger nieces and nephews that would be perfect for this too.

Dawn McAlexander said...

That looks like fun, but also dangerous. At least, for a klutz like me, it would be dangerous. The kids would be okay, but I would be in the emergency room after one attempt lol!

Crystal said...

Totally having childhood flashbacks! So much fun! My kids would love one too.

alissa apel said...

I had one of these when I was little. It was pretty fun! I'm glad they brought them back. Anything to get them playing outside.

Brianne Manz said...

My son would love this toy! So checking it out for him!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Oh, what fun memories you just brought back here! I used to spend hours on my Pogo Ball when I was a kid. Best toy EVER!

~ Noelle said...

Wow
I did not know they made them (or brought them back, whatever the case may be!) That was from my childhood. I bet broxton would have a blast on it!
