This jumping hot dog Hopper is really cute. It does look like a hot dog and it’s easy for the child to bounce on. There’s two handles that they hold on and they just jump up-and-down. It took about five minutes to pump it up. I think this is a good bouncy for I would say probably four years old and up. my son is soon to be five and he bounced around on this thing for hours he loves it. It’s well made, great quality and durable. I really think these hopper Bouncy balls are really good for the kids get some up on way from the TV and balancing and get an extra exercise that they need. Overall I think this is an excellent toy. It would be great for a gift for a boy or girl.
