Know by many names; French Skipping, Chinese Jump Ropes, Jumping Tyres or Rubber Bands - this simple game will give hours of fun and a sneaky workout for kids.
This Me & Mine set includes 5 meters of elastic band in range of fluorescent colour, a cloth bag and instructions for some known routines.
Chinese Jump Ropes is one of those classic games that contribute to the concept of “children’s street culture.”
Socializing, collaborating, learning, exercising outdoors and, of course, having fun give meaning to this concept. Many parents will remember playing with similar bands in the schoolyard, in the park or at home with the help of a couple of chairs on rainy days.
This jump rope game includes instructions with some of the songs or routines that we played with back in the day.
In any case, the generic rules are very simple: two people hold the rubber band around their legs. The other participants take turns jumping, repeating a routine that may or may not be accompanied by a song.
The difficulty increases as the height of the rubber bands increases: ankles, calves, knees, waist … When the person who is jumping fails, he loses his turn and goes to the next one.

When I saw these in the shop it took me less than 10 seconds to hit the Buy button and I was not disappointed. They've been a hit with the 10 year old and her friends and even I had a go (even though it has been maaaaany years since I've engaged in this particular kind of fun). I wasn't familiar with the supplied jumping recommendations, but they help when starting out.
10/10 would buy again
