A super fun, multi-use outdoor toy has landed in the store! The Spooner Board is a sturdy balancing board with curved edges and good grip on the top and bottom and is wonderful for ages 3 and up.
It is great for improving coordination, core strength, and balancing skills, and is also a fantastic way to brush up on skateboarding and surfing techniques. Older kids can use them to practice snowboard tricks, too!
Spooner Boards have won several awards, including ASTRA Best Toys For Kids and Creative Child Magazine Toy of the Year. The combination of fun and skill development make this toy a real gem, especially at a time when kids are spending less time being physically active then in previous generations. According to an article on CBC, Canadian kids are, on average, getting less than half the recommended daily amount of moderate to vigorous activity. This is an excellent way to make it fun for kids to be active!
Spooner Boards can be used in or out of doors, and even in the snow. Made in the United States, the Spooner Board has no weight or height limits. Check out their video of some of the rad tricks that can be done!
