My 10 yr old got this for Christmas. It's still a little tight and hard for him to jump on - he's at the low end of the weight. However - I just need to jump on it a few more times to loosen it up. His friends have been over and used it and had no problems. His brother has a smaller one that he gets on sometimes but he has to be careful since he is heavier than the recommended weight. Worth it for the sale price but seemed very expensive if paid full price. Didn't know pogo sticks were so expensive.
I bought this for my daughter's 10th birthday. She loved it,and was bouncing around for 3 days until the bottom broke off. She only weighs 65 pounds and only jumped a few times a day. I returned it, in which Sears was very helpful (didn't have to pay postage). I assumed we just got a dud, so I ordered another one exactly like it. It came quickly, and the exact same thing happened! Day 3 it broke. So we will look for another brand of pogo stick.
Totally broke just like the other 12 disappointed reviewers said.
Trying to find things for my son to do that he enjoys for exercise has been challenging. Thank you for bringing back the pogo stick - and on SALE at Christmas!!! Great, Super - I love it and so does he - 11 years old, 5'7" and 148 pounds!!!
Bought it for our 8 yr old son at Christmas. Took him a few weeks to 'get' it but once he did he was doing over 100 jumps at a time. UNfortunately, It only took about a week into his multiple jumps that the bottom rubber 'foot' fell right off. It does look like it should screw into something, but there is nothing it attaches to. So amamzingly bummed for him and us. He is definetly a sedintary reader/computer kid....so seeing him run outside before the bus and after school to POGO was awesome! The other reviews were very helpful in getting me to write mine. This product is not worth the $40 bucks spent.
The Street Flyer Double Pogo Stick is the best that I have ever seen or purchased. My granddaughter loves it. It is weel built and sturdy and it took her no time at all to master it. The grahics are very nice and contemporary which is one of the things that she loves about it also.
My 74 lb son got this for Christmas one Christmas Eve evening. It broke on Christmas day. Now the welding place tells me it may cost upto $30 to fix it or I can take it back to Kmart and get the refund. Only problem is my two younger children know Santa brought that to their brother and I got it Black Friday for a very good deal. Good deals arent' always worth the headache. I am calling corporate after seeing these reveiws.
Bought 2 and both broke apart on first use by kids who are WAY lighter than weight limit!
Pogo stick bottom tip broke off first day of use. Was going to replace it with the same one, but after reading reviews, I expect a new one would break again.
My 11 year old son received this for Christmas. I actually drove an hour to get it as all the Sears stores closer were sold out. It appeared to be pretty heavy duty and he is within the weight limit, around 125 lbs. He only used it a dozen times or so before it wouldn't "bouce" anymore. It looks like a piece broke off, which I'm guessing is the culprit. I'm going to try and take it back and exchange it this week. If the next one performs better, I'll update my review but for now, it wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
