HappyHopperz enter the outdoor sector

Bouncy ride-on inflatable animals, dubbed as the 'new Space Hopper', available now.
Publish date:

HappyHopperz have ears and horns for children to grip on to and feet to steady the bounce. The animals are available in a variety of styles and colours.

The toys help to develop children through play and strengthen core muscles, increase balance control and develop co-ordination.

HappyHopperz can be used indoors and out and in the smallest of spaces. The characters can be inflated or deflated in seconds allowing for portability. The product has no batteries, lights or noises.

The bouncy toys can also be used as a rehabilitation tool for young children and are proven to stimulate motor neuron systems - the foundation for developing skills such as memory, language, jumping and running. They are also used as pre-walker aids, encouraging crawling babies to work their leg muscles and take their first steps.

The wonderful HappyHopperz bouncy animals are to date, available in seven designs across 16 colour ways with new designs constantly being added, including a Cartoon Dog, a Cow and a Horse. Christmas will see the the addition of Rudolph the Red Reindeer
