Now, they even have ones made especially for young children and beginner pogo stick jumpers in mind. Have you heard about Flybar?

In addition, they were offered to give one away to one lucky Inspired by Savannah reader -- read on to learn how you can enter this flash giveaway to win this cool limited edition pogo stick for that special child in your life.
So, what makes the Maverick Limited Edition Pogo Stick great and a perfect gift idea for children ages 5-9 years old, this holiday season? For starters look at the cool colors of the two pogo sticks available...
As you can see in the photos, this is not your average pogo stick. If you look closely you will see rubber hand grips, which make the Maverick Pogo easy to hold on, for all those beginner pogo jumpers out there.
The Limited Edition Maverick Pogo is now even easier to hold onto with rubber hand grips instead of foam.
And, if that wasn't enough, there are also non-slip foot pegs, which are textured to help increase stability and keep your child from falling off.
Textured foot pegs to increase stability and to make sure your child doesn't slip off.
Another wonderful feature, which I know my brothers would have loved to have seen years ago, is a foam covered metal frame.
The soft foam material offers a really cool look while also providing protection of your child and the pogo stick it self.
My girls were so excited to get a pogo stick to try out, and they have been busy jumping away on it, honing their pogo stick jumping skills. I have to admit, they are getting really good. And, it is keeping them entertained and having fun, while also burning a lot of energy jumping all about. Bella kept saying, "See, Mom, there is nothing dangerous about a pogo stick." I had to agree after seeing the amazing quality of this pogo stick from Flybar, which was made especially for their age range and beginner jumping level. Hats off to Flybar!! :-)
If you are looking for a fun way to get kids off the tech gadget and away from the video games, and outside to enjoy the fresh air...give them the new Maverick Limited Edition Pogo Stick. Once they give this unique and oh so stylish pogo stick a go, they will be hooked, and not want to stop jumping. I know as my girls haven't stopped using their Maverick Pogo Stick from Flybar since we got a few weeks ago. And, whenever friends come to visit, they are first to demonstrate how you properly pogo stick before letting their friends have a go at it. And, before long, their friends are jumping all about and having a blast, too. I just had another mom call and ask what type of pogo stick their daughter was jumping on, as they couldn't stop talking about it at the dining room table, and now want one for Christmas. :-)
So, if your child has asked Santa for a pogo stick but you were leery about getting one based on your childhood experience, think again. Head on over to Flybar to check out this and their other pogo sticks for kids and adults.
But, be warned, once you see how much fun your child is having on their pogo stick, you will wish you had your own. :-)
