That kid looks like he's having the ride of his life, doesn't he? Or at least a really great time.
I'm not entirely sure just how I stumbled across the Rody Hopping Horse, but it's exactly the kind of toy I can see my youngest niece and nephew spending hours bouncing on from one end of the driveway to the other for an entire afternoon. He's cute, comes in a ton of colors and is incredibly sturdy. All of which makes it worth paying the bit extra for him that you will over other hopping toys.
When I started poking around at competitors for Rody, I found a ton of options for cute animal hopper balls. Most are just a regular hopper ball with a fabric cover on it, but cute anyway.
