Fly Me To The Moon!

Remember my 'Moon Jumpers' from third grade, with the block of wood and big springs??? There I was in Wal-Mart...strolling thru the toy section on my way to another department - I turned around, and lo and behold: Today's version: Moon Shoes!!! Mini-trampolines in a plastic bucket that you strap onto your feet...Artist Child almost made me buy them....

I'll bet they were hard to resist with your past history with their predecessor! Thanks for sharing the picture.

Love it! But do you want your Artist Child to end up in traction???

Looks like some platform shoes I had in college. . .

Jane Ann...traction is exactly why Artist Mom did NOT allow Artist Child to buy them!!! I had a friend who was in his thirties that one time went Roller Skating...a little kid fell in front of him...he tried to jump over the little kid...ended up with his leg broken in 3 places...said it would have been softer to land on the kid - and probably would have caused less damage! Dr told him not to try skating with little kids again!

I want some. As the child of a pediatric nurse, I didn't get to have toys like these shoes when I was young.

Oh, to be a kid again. I would have loved these. I'd still love them, but I'd break my neck. Or worse.

I bought those for my older daughter 5 years ago or so; she managed them ok but they aren't the safest toy in the world, that's for sure.

Younger daughter is begging for a trampoline - almost gave in, but probably won't buy it after all....too worried about broken necks and all after mentioning it to my ER nurse friend!
