Remember this fun jumping toy called the Pogo Ball?.They were a Saturn type toy where you snug your feet on the top part of the ball and you bounce away.I kinda have this berry fuzzy memory of me almost killing myself on one of those at age 3 back in Kingston,NY. Laughing

I remember they had a version that just had a ring on top and one with a horse's head (with handles at the sides).

I actully had to pleasure of having a friend that owned one of those. Couldn't bounce on it too much cause after three hops, I got tired. Maybe if we'd inflated it a bit more, coulda been easier, but I didn't wanna break it, nor did he. Good times.

I had one of those things, the wierd part was I could actualy jump a little higher when I wasn't useing it. The only "fun" thing you could do was jump in a straight line going forward or backward, real pogp sticks are better. Very Happy

Man, I loved pogo balls. Where I lived, all the kids had them. The kids that didn't have them, we shared. We had pogo ball races, and other fun events. Man, I miss those things. But, I'm way to big to enjoy them now, even if they brought them back.

I remember having one. I could never get the hang of it. I only jumped good on it while hanging on to a banister. Yes is was very much easier to use when the ball popped Wink .

I think the Galaxy ball, was the knock-off. A cheaper version. I remember hearing how some balls broke. I punished my pogo, jumping really high a lot and banging down hard. Practicing moves and stuff. Not once did it pop.

They're selling these again in stores. I saw one in Wal-Mart a while back. =O

Never did get one of my own... too bad I'm over the weight limit now.

I still have vivid memories about this pogo ball. I remember playing with my mom's pogo ball though I was not looking to work myself out but I took it quite a challenge to try and let it pop.

I never succeeded in blowing the ball up, because it was just to thick. Quite ironically, the sort of plastic material where you stand on was even the first one that snapped and broke.
