Zoingo Boingo Review

I am so glad that spring is finally here! The weather is getting warmer and the nights are staying lighter for longer the children have started to explore the garden again. With that I got asked if we would like to review the Zoingo Boingo I thought it would be just perfect for my too cool for school nine year old. 

My sisters and I had a simlar thing as children that looked like a space ship so I knew just how much fun they could be. When it came my son wasn't overly impressed not much does when you are super cool. it wasnt until it was pumped up he started to look keen. The zoingo comes with a gauge so you know the right size to pump it up to as seen in the above photo.

 He was actually looking forward to trying it out and it took quite a few attempts for him to gain his balance. It works by placing both your feet either side of the ball in the middle and then getting balance and grip to then bounce up and down. We discovered you need a good pair of trainers and that it doesnt work with no shoes on (as I found out).

You can change the direction of the bounce by leaning that way. Asti wanted to do the skills like on the front but couldnt master a massive jump, I think that will come with more practice. It was a lot of fun (just to watch as a parent). The toddlers were desperate to have a go but they were far too small. The product is aimed for ages 7 plus so perfect for my Asti.

It was alot of fun to get Asti outside he has got to the age where he is bored of the outdoor toys. It takes alot for him to be pulled away from the Disney Chanel or minecraft. He really enjoyed playing outside and trying to learn a new skill off bouncing and balancing. 

 The Zoingo Boingo Comes in a variety of colours and is avalible in Orange, Yellow and Green. We enjoyed seeing who could do the most bounces so far I am in the lead with 12.

 It retails at £24.99 and available at all good toy retailers. 


  1. Oh my goodness, my oldest 2 children would love this! Although I think we would have to get 2, otherwise there would be a lot of bickering! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  2. I had one of the spaceship looking ones when I was a kid and we used to bounce around the garden all the time! #triedtested

  3. It looks like great fun - I remember friends having something like this when I was a kid and I was very jealous!
    Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

  4. Would this be ok for a 6 year old boy
