Just had a crazy flashback to my childhood. My god were these fun, but they were exhausting! If I had kids now I'd get them some only so they'd tire out and sleep. Daddy needs quiet while he sips his whiskey.
Decent reviews (3.3 out of 5.0) over at Amazon
Ah, the most surefire way to sprain your ankle returns!

Can we assume you're not a fan of Jarts either?
This song is quite catchy.
Had a pair of these when I was young. I don't recall them ever working.
I think my son's were the Nickelodeon purple & green version.
Wow had these when I was a kid, back when they were Nickelodeon... They were fun and durable, but such a pain to put together (you have to attach and adjust all the rubber bands yourself, which is a pain until you get it set just right for your kid's weight). Also be warned, the rubber bands stink pretty bad for a while, so I wouldn't keep these stored in a bedroom.
These look like a really good way to break a body part!

Yep, I remember these ol' boys breaking my ankles back in the '90s. I wasn't as coordinated as my little brothers.
or if you prefer their text review
$44.99 customer not thrilled at Toys R Us
From the product website
$7 for 50 replacement rubber bands.
Edit: $19.99 tonight
<== Had 2 Pairs. Jelly?
But really, these things were scary as hell! But you know, fun too.
I remember Santa bringing me the Nickelodeon ones, and I thought they were the coolest thing ever. My teenage brothers even used them and no rubber bands broke, so they're sturdy. They were really loud on concrete though, I'm sure our neighbors hated us Christmas Day.

so many twisted ankles from these
wonder if the new ones have been redesigned
I can squeeze into a size 9.
This could be combined with (adult) drinking games for very unsafe fun.
Can't believe the safety police haven't banned these yet.
First thing I thought of:
My jumping stilts make these seem silly. =P But I suppose this would be fun for kids who don't have trampolines.
Woot, let me know when you get some shoes that really defy gravity, and you can have my savings account.
Rubber bands from these plus pool cues = crazy rubber band guns. Fun for all ages!
Never was a huge fan of the shoes but gave them multiple tries and they certainly are exhausting (feels like walking on rubber with cinder blocks strapped to your feet)
Considering so many posters and I still remember them, they're assured to carve out some memories in your child's brain.
Note, pogo sticks were more fun, but only spring loaded ones, not compressed air.
So what are the chances a size 15, 240lb man couldn't use these?
I just sprained my ankle remembering these things...

Bring back metal Jarts!
My kids have had these for a couple of years. They've provided hours of fun and no injuries. I got them on a black friday for the same price, so it's a good deal!
I remember using these to absorb the impact of jumping off of high things as a kid. Worked great until I jumped off the garage and the springs snapped my knees back up into my own face. That was a hard one to explain to mom...
I get to be the favorite uncle once again One for each of my nephews and one for my daughter, who will get this for her 7th birthday in June.

Just about nil. The shoe holders are size 9. Your feet would prevent springing.

Whoa! Way to be warned! If these stink then I assume the rubber bands are real latex, and my daughter is highly allergic to latex! I was considering ordering these for all three of my grandchildren, but not if they will send Mommy to the hospital!
