Have you ever wanted to know what it would feel like to fly? How about hop like a kangaroo? Well, you can experience both as you take to the ground and sky with a pogo stick!

Pogo sticks come in a wide variety of colors, styles, sizes, and features. Here are some things to consider when shopping for a pogo stick:

How old is the user? Be sure to choose a pogo stick that is age-appropriate. Smaller, lighter pogo stick styles can accommodate younger, lighter children and allow them to learn without fighting the weight of a heavy pogo stick. Many pogo sticks intended for use by children have some form of foam padding on them and will have a lower-impact design.

What level of jumping with you be using the pogo stick for? Most pogo stick users are looking for a pogo stick to be used for recreational jumping. These sticks are basic, traditional pogo sticks. They may have some added features like foam padding or fun color combinations, but are generally low-tech. On the other end of the spectrum, extreme jumpers can find pogo sticks with specific features made for high-air and trick jumping. These pogo sticks are also usually made from higher quality materials and do not have foam padding as advanced users do not generally need it.
