Just a little reminder before we head into the weekend. Thanks, OgoSport, for some great information!
OgoSport Aero Zipp:
We love most of the toys from OgoSport – they are challenging enough to make our kids think and require them to be outside and moving. In December we reviewed a couple of their other toys, but today we get to talk about one of their newer ones – the Aero Zipp.
Our boys would haul their Aero Zipps everywhere if we let them. They are lightweight enough to do just that, but carrying anything while you are biking is tricky.
The balls launch a surprisingly far distance (it really is over 200 feet, depending on the launcher), but the movement is a bit tricky for small arms. J (age 5) can totally do it, but P (3 years) really can’t quite yet. Either way, they are entertained by just watching it too. Katmai goes crazy for it.
We love how the balls are held in a holster that attaches right to it. The red balls in the picture whistle too, which just adds to the fun.
Our complaints? They aren’t the strongest things in the world. Leaning on them/putting your weight on them isn’t a good idea (even if you’re 5.) Also, you have to get the ball in there so it’s held in, but not completely in or it won’t go very well. Just tricks you learn as you play!
