Fun Toy for All, NOT just for Dancer/Gymnasts
on October 28, 2010
I bought this for my 6 year old daughter after her ribbon from the dollar store disintegrated (literally), and she loves it. Although she is currently not in a dance program or in gymnastics, she loves to dance around the house with the ribbon in tow.
The ribbon's colors are vibrant and durable. The plastic stick is solid and the ribbon is connected to the stick with a rotating ball, preventing tangels. The ends of the ribbon can get knotted from time to time, but easy to untie.
My daughter has been playing with it non-stop for over a month and it has not frayed or ripped. It has even withstood the abuse of her twin 2 year old brothers. They have created their own games to play with the ribbon, and sometimes the boys just enjoy their big sister waving the ribbon. When I find a moment, I plan on gluing/sewing the end of the ribbon to increase its use/life.
Overall a very fun toy that encourages my kids to be active - to jump, dance, and run around. For $8, a solid return on my investment for the pleasure it brings them.
