As I mentioned last month the girls and I have teamed up with Character Toys as part of their Stay Active ambassador team!
The Stay Active range is aimed at assisting in reducing child obesity and mental health issues. Character want to help inspire parents wanting to reduce screen time to get their children active by creating family-inclusive activities and toys we can all enjoy together.
There are many benefits of the Stay Active range such as increased mental wellbeing, improving movement, balance, coordination, and reaction time plus encouraging those social skills that boost self-esteem, and confidence!
Last month we were having skip off’s with Jump It and this month were reaching for the moon with Characters Moon Shoes..
What are Moon Shoes?
Moon Shoes transform your feet into mini trampolines that let you ‘defy gravity’! They are an anti-gravity device that is powered purely by children (and adults if you also fancy having a go!)
Moon Shoes are so much fun; and not only can you jump super high it also helps children with developing balance and co-ordination skills.
Moon Shoes are made of quality, high-density plastic, with adjustable VELCRO closure straps to secure the feet. They do require a small amount of assembly but it was really easy to put them together, no tools required. You can also adjust the amount of elastic bands in them to up the springiness! In the girls eyes the springier the better!
Much to the girls disappointment we said no to having a trampoline in this garden; I just find they sit going rusty, ruin the grass and are just bit of an eye sore. The last one we had rarely got used and then was a pain in the backside to get rid of. These Moon Shoes have been the perfect compromise! They can bounce to their hearts content and then I can put them away in the shed – win, win.
It took them a few minutes to get their balance but after a few minutes they were off. Give it a few weeks and they’ll be doing flips I’m sure, my children are quite the little acrobats! They love them and have been using them every day this Easter half term – highly recommend for a fun garden toy.
Moon Shoes are available now in Argos and RRP at £35.00.
