About this deal


Remember how it felt to be a kid? Want to feel that level of joy again? Why not embrace some truly retro fun with this Bouncy Space Hopper?

Within the first three months, more than 300,000 units were sold across the country. Because of market and media saturation of this toy, any such ball, regardless of origin, is now generally known in the US by that name. The Hoppity Hop sold steadily for decades, but by the 1990s, sales began to slip due to increased competition from foreign hoppers.

that not only rival the space hoppers of the 1970's but take the art of BOUNCING to a whole new level.

Show your kids how we used to have fun before Snapchat and get everyone outside in the sunshine too. Suitable for adults as well as children, so everyone can have some bouncy fun.

The British animated sketch show Monkey Dust features the recurring character Ivan 'The Meat-Safe Murderer" Dobsky, a man imprisoned in 1974 for a crime he didn't commit, being finally released in every episode with no possessions other than a variety of 1970s clothing and a space hopper called Mr. Hoppy. Mr. Hoppy is eventually revealed to be both sentient and responsible for the Meat-Safe Murders himself. A. You can inflate a hopper ball with a hand pump, foot pump, or even an electric pump, assuming your pump has the right attachment to fit in the valve. That said, hopper balls aren't especially huge (particularly those models designed for young children), so the majority of healthy adults can manage to blow one up using lung power alone.The space hopper was invented by Aquilino Cosani of Ledragomma, an Italian company that manufactured toy rubber balls. He patented the idea in Italy in 1968, and in the United States in 1971. Cosani called the toy "Pon-Pon". This hopper comes deflated, but thankfully you can blow it up using the foot pump and connector, which means that in just a few minutes you will be ready to go and ready to have some fun.
