Ella turned 9 recently. When asked what she wanted for her birthday, the first thing she listed every time was a pogo stick. I was somewhat hesitant to let her have one. Why? I know someone who broke his leg while pogo-ing. I would love to cover all three of my children in bubble wrap from head to toe. Knock on wood...none of them have had any broken bones thus far, but I know it is always a possibility. Hopefully, Ella's birthday present won't lead to any broken bones.
She's wiry and doesn't have enough mass to make the pogo really get going. It's more of an Allegro bounce.
