Bounce away Boredom with Bounce-Along-Buddies!

Moo Moo and Trotter Review and Giveaway!!

We live in the country.  I wake at night if a car drives by because it almost never happens.  I am lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the neighboring farm's bull bellowing, the frogs croaking, and the crickets singing the blues, and every morning at 4:30 am I am awakened by Joe, the rooster singing his "it's uppy up time" cock-a-doodle-do.

So, I guess it is no surprise that my youngest Mika adores everything country from the chickens, to gardening, to bon fires, to animals. His favorite thing of all though is to walk a half a mile to see the neighbors cows and calves.  The calves are not people shy at all, and will walk right up to the fence and just "talk" away with us.  Then we walk another half mile or so to see another neighbors beautiful Clydesdale horses.  To say Mika loves cows and horses is an understatement even though he has tested allergic to both :).

We were just thrilled to receive a package in the mail from FS-USA, North America’s premier maker of toys and gifts, containing their awesome Bounce-Along-Buddies, Moo Moo and Trotter!



Mind you, Moo Moo and Trotter are geared perfectly for Mika's age bracket, but my oldest three were so excited to my surprise.  Max offered to use the pump to blow up the toys and I let him be the "man" and build the toys for Mika.  We had a hand pump that you push the handle to fill the toys with air, and I honestly thought it would take forever to fill each toy.



 I even told Max not to worry, we could have my husband fill them with his air compressor the next day if it didn't work.  What can I say, call me a cynic! Believe it or not, Max had Trotter filled in about 3 minutes, and Tara Grace, my girly girl filled Moo Moo in about five minutes.  It was so easy and fast, and I am proud to eat crow and say I was wrong about these being the typical blow up toys that are impossible to fill!



The rest is best said in pictures!  Every one of the children had turns on the toy, and my 90 lb 13 year old rode the toy just fine without popping it.  Disclaimer:  I am not sure the weight limit on them, so you may want to defer to the box suggestions before bouncing 100 lbs on it!



These have been one of the best toys we have ever gotten or purchased.  Typically the kids are done with a toy within a week tops, but every night my husband works the kids have Trotter and Moo Moo races on my hardwoods and just have a great time!



As a mom, a few features really impress me.  I love that the soft ears of both animals double as the perfect sized hand grips for little hands so they can hold on as they bounce which helps prevent injuries.  They are easy to clean, safe for all flooring and furniture, and they are powered by shear energy, no batteries needed. I also love that it encourages bouncing which is needed for sensory issues, but also helps with hyperactivity problems too!


You can find Moo Moo and Trotter along with lots of other fun things on the Fs-USA website, and connect with them socially on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube.
