Fropper OkieDog Ride-On

With so many playthings for little ones centered around the television or video games, I like to keep an eye out for toys that get my children moving and playing. That's why I LOVE the Fropper from OkieDog!

It is this cool ride-on with unique bouncing action for children 18 months to 36 months. Funny enough, I have two kids that fit the bill and on either end of the spectrum. They both LOVE IT. And they both ride it with ease.



The primary reason that the age limit is 36 months (I think) is because of weight and over-bouncing. My 3 year old is quite bouncy with it. And the weight limit is 45 pounds, which I think is within the upper limit of normal for a 36 month old. My own kiddo is only 27 pounds at 3. His brother is 25 pounds at 18 months.

Both boys roll it forward, backwards and make it bounce, bounce, bounce. Of all the ride-ons, this one is the easiest for them to move backwards and forward. While my 18 month old usually only scoots backwards on other ride-ons.

I mentioned its unique bouncing action. How does this work? Well, the seat is actually made of two levels, with a spring in between. This spring is well-protected and covered with plastic, so no pinched fingers! The seat also provides a comfortable and secure ride, since it is curved to support your kiddo's bottom. And what's IMMENSELY AWESOME is how it folds almost flat for storage and travel. So while it might be hard for me to take the other ride-ons anywhere, I can fold this one teeny and fit it into the car when traveling this summer or going to grandma's.

You can purchase the Fropper for $79.99 from International Playthings. It would make a super Birthday gift ... or Christmas if you are planning that far ahead.

Pre-Fropper:
If you love the Fropper, but need a toy for a beginning walker, consider the Cheeky Chick from International Playthings. Just like the Fropper, it is ready-to-ride right out of the box. And it also folds for easy storage and travel. But it acts as a walker/ride-on to assist toddlers with those beginning steps. It is for ages 12 - 36 months and also sells for $79.99.

Buzzworthy:
You can purchase an OkieDog Parent Handle at International Playthings to fit into either the Fropper or Cheeky Chick. This helps you lead little one's in the right direction when riding outside!
