Being active is most often on everybody’s list on how to make the new year better, and kids are no exception. Tracy and Amber try out some products that will help in keeping kids active throughout the year.
With 2015 in full-swing now, I’m sure those New Year’s Resolutions are still fresh in your mind. Being active is most often on everybody’s list on how to make the new year better, and kids are no exception. I wanted to introduce to you some products that will help in keeping kids active throughout the year.
The GeoFlux (Ages 6 & up) transforms into a 3-D sculpture made out of rugged stainless steel that resembles a giant atom or an extra planetary orchid. When you insert your hand through the coils, it begins to spiral up and down your arms, spinning at a fast pace. It won’t stop in case you want to transfer it to another surface as it can “bridge” over without stopping its motion. GeoFlux can serve as a party trick, an exercise tool, or a great gift for kids as well.
Geospace’s new Sparkler LED Jump Rope modernizes the classic jump rope for kids. Kids will truly be in the center of the cascade of flashing LED multi-colored lights, which are embedded inside of the jump rope. What’s even better is that no batteries are required, as the dynamo produces low-voltage electricity that powers the LEDs. The Sparkler is 99 inches long, which is ideal for children 8 years old to adults as well.
Another toy powered with LED lights is the new Sparkler Whip ‘N Skip from Geospace. This toy was definitely popular in the 90’s, but this new version will have kids hopping for hours on end. Once kids tether it to one leg, they can begin rolling the ball in a circular pattern. With this comes the challenge of maintaining balance, endurance and coordination, not to mention competition as to see who can keep going for the longest. The Sparkler Whip ‘N Skip does requires 2 AAA batteries, and will be fun for kids 7 years & up.
