Upon receipt of the blue “Benny’s“, as my kids soon named them, our house was immediately a lot busier and noisier! All of the kids’ energy that has been bottled up since early November when the weather turned cold suddenly had an outlet. They soon set up a race track that looped around the kitchen, into the living room, and back again. The “Benny’s” may be more suited to be an outdoor toy, as the quality seems high and like it would hold up on a garage floor or concrete. The horns double as handles, which makes for easy steering.
As with most new toys, the “Benny’s” the bull, accompanied each boy to bed time they were in our house. Although a little large and uncomfortable looking to mom, they used them as pillows for awhile
The sizing seemed inconsistent, as one “Benny” seemed larger than the other, although similar looking in every other way. My oldest son thought it looked like a movie star, with its sunglasses and white stars imprinted on its side.
If there was a downfall, I would only say that my oldest seemed a little big to play on it. (He’s an average sized 5 year old.) His knees came up to his chest when he hopped. I will say, however, that he didn’t complain
I would recommend playing with the Benny’s. They seem durable and are kind of cute all on their own. They are a version of a hippity hop, although probably easier to use because of the way they are designed – with the handles on front, instead of one handle on the very top of a round ball.
Be sure to tell your kids not to pull the plug that keeps the air in, as it makes for an impromptu refill session. Maybe a piece of duct tape over the air plug would do the trick? The Benny’s do come with their own air pump for convenience.
