Product Description

School Smart bouncing platform ball is used in physical education class or for aerobic fitness training, and helps develop balance, agility, and strength through hopping exercises. The ball is used like a pogo stick without the stick piece for jumping up and down, and consists of a seamless figure-8 ball locked into a structurally supported platform for stability. The ball is made of plastic for durability, with its platform measuring 15.0”/38.1cm in diameter and 5/8”/1.6cm in thickness.

I LOVED this when I had one as a kid, and decided to get one figuring it would be fun and great exercise. I chose this one because it seemed to be able to handle adults. I weigh about 130 clothed, and it seems plenty durable. I had to pump it up a bit more after making this video to handle my weight. The platform is reinforced underneath, so it is strong enough to hold me. As you can see, they sent me a red and yellow one when the other pictures show a blue one. It seems durable and the plastic the ball is made from seems pretty thick. I bought a $4 pump at Wal-Mart to blow it up and I was off and bouncing in just a few minutes.

I'm 32, and the pogo ball was my favorite toy as a kid. Not the brand name jumper, but sturdy and fun just like the 80's product! I'm 160 lbs and have no problem bouncing around to my heart's content. Awesome cardio, which is why I bought it! You will need a pump handy when the lolo ball arrives, but it's easy to inflate. Thanks!

I was so happy to have found this item. I was looking for the name brand bouncer, but they are no longer making them. Skeptical at first because the ball came deflated and looked like I couldn't make this work. But after inflating the ball, and adjusting it, it works great! Make sure that the ball is inflated enough for the weight of the person using it. I am a 49 year old female, so I had to inflate it nice and full so the ball wouldn't pop out while bouncing. At first, I didn't inflate it enough and that's what happened. But with more air, it stayed intact and I was bouncing away! These are great just for fun or for exercise value. It does take a little time to learn though! While learning, holding onto something like the stair banister will help. It takes practice to get it right, just getting onboard! Exercising that's fun is the way to go!

This platform ball is fine for small kids (say up to 80 lbs.), not sturdy enough for bigger kids and adults. The toy comes in two pieces and you'll need an air pump and sports ball needle to inflate the rubber ball part. The ball seems to be self-regulating so it won't over-inflate (it releases air until it gets to the right pressure then stops.) I actually bought this for myself, but at 125 lbs. I'm too heavy to use it. The ball is pushed out of the ring after a few bounces. I've tried installing the ball in both directions but that doesn't help. It's just not sturdy enough. For my daughter who is 65 lbs., however, it's great. She loves it! I feel that it should be bouncier, though. Also, after only a couple of playground outings, the plastic platform is quite scratched up. But for the price and the exercise my child gets from it, I would buy it again.

I was a bit worried when my 11 and 9 year olds had trouble figuring it out at the beginning, but within a couple of days they were off and hopping. Now I often find them bouncing around the back yard and driveway. Great active toy!

I was looking for any little items to toss in for Christmas to get my 9 year old off of the xbox! I just added this on as almost an afterthought with the pogo stick I ordered (another great purchase). He loves it and found it a challenge in the begining. Didnt take him long to master it. I think my husband was surprised, because they apparently had similar items when he was young. Great for balance for our "little" tackle football/lacrosse player! As far as value, this is a NO BRAINER. You just need to make sure the correct amount of air is in the ball, or it won't work well.

I wanted to like it as my daughter is very good at these kinds of items (pogo stick, ripstick, skateboard, jumprope), but the ball pops out of the ring every couple of bounces--and the ball was in correctly. We tried adjusting the amount of air in it, but the ring just kept coming off.

She is 10 and weighs about 70 pounds so this shouldn't happen based on the reviews and description/question answers. No one around us wanted it after seeing that so I ended up throwing it out, along with the money I paid for it (too late to return it). Big regret on this purchase, what a huge waste. It should be tested properly, then listed with maximum poundage. Ages mean nothing since kids come in all sizes.

Wonderful! I hold onto the countertop and bounce. It is a great aerobic exercise that can be done in a limited space and time. Many muscles are involved that may not be used in everyday life situations. Good quality and worth the price. Be sure to have your own ball pump handy.
