Description
The pogo ball was a playground ball that had a disc around it so you could use it like a pogo stick... It was very fun and good exercise.

I had one of these. It was a lot of fun, but you had to have pretty good balance to use it. I noticed they are selling these again... would be a GREAT way to get kids outside again.

I had one of these and fell off and broke my wrist and three places. Of course, I was going through a doorway at the time but today they'd never sell a toy like this. I LOVED this thing.

YES!!! I had mines, it went flat YEEEARS later...it was the pink ball w/ yellow circle...it was awesome...recently (and while pregnant w/my 2nd child) I found one identical to it, a little smaller than what I remember them too. I immediately jumped on it and hopped about 3 jumps and had to get off...I was 7 months pregnant, what can you do...

Dude, I remember this toy! I used to love it! I remember thinking it was especially cool because it looked like the planet Saturn. LOL!

I always wanted one but never got it :(

I had a yellow/pink one, and jumped and jumped and jumped on it. Loved it. I found mine a few years ago and tried to get on it. And I'll just say that the ball needed a little more air. LOL

I never understood why they stopped selling these. They were awesome. The funniest thing was when they'd get warped and wouldn't bounce right.

my sister's boyfriend, a very large guy on his high school football team, used my pogo ball without my permission. i remember the huge POP sound it made when it exploded under his weight. i was traumatized. to this day, i cannot bring myself to jump up and down with glee.

For my 10th birthday, my mom got me one after begging her to get me one. I loved it!

Kari - July 21, 2008 - Report this comment
It took me a little while to get the hang of this-but I loved it!! My two best friends each had one and I begged my dad to get me one so we could all pogo together. We'd trade because we each had different colors.

My cousin and I each had one of these! Mine was purple and his was blue! I remember us having a blast on them for hours until we had blisters! We had scraped knees from when we first learned how to use them. I always got in trouble for using mine in the house. My brother eventually stabbed mine with a knife and ruined it. I don't think I ever forgave him! I would love to have one now and I'm in my 30's!

I had one of these and I got blisters on my feet from jumping on it bare foot. The thing went flat and ended up in the garage. Sold it to some kid flat at our garage sale.

I used to love these things. We were just at work talking about this toy and how great exercise it was! Now kids are way too fat because toys like this are not around anymore.

played with it for a bit until my mom decided it was too dangerous.
Greg - December 01, 2008 - Report this comment
They come up on ebay (US) once in a while - going for about $35-50 w/shipping. If you have one in your garage still, make some money off it...
Kelly - December 11, 2008 - Report this comment
So much fun! Got mine when it first came out and it was yellow and black, then shortly after it came out in PINK and black and I was pissed!! I wanted that one!

I had a green and yellow one. At recess, me and my friends would pogo ball the whole time.

I had one....I could do the "back scratcher" where you flip it up behind your back and catch it.
Sally - June 05, 2009 - Report this comment
In the UK we called them Trim-balls. They were so popular that we added an extra activity to the primary school sports day - trim balling from one side of the pitch to the other in the quickest time. ah happy days!...

I HAD ONE OF THESE.. WISH I COULD BUY ONE AGAIN. IT WOULD BE AN AWESOME WORKOUT!!!
T - November 10, 2009 - Report this comment
I had one of these, but I could never use it. I just couldn't stay balanced on it. The only way I could use it was by holding onto a tree and lightly bouncing. If it left the ground, my feet would slip off. :( I wasn't allowed to use it indoors.

Damien - September 11, 2010 - Report this comment
I did the pool thing too. Mine was black and red. Got it when I was 10, had it till I was 20 when I donated it to Goodwill.

I loved my Pogo Ball! A Christmas gift one year, mine was blue and pink - which was exactly what I wanted when only yellow and orange Pogo Balls were available in stores near me. I loved it and even more I liked to jump rope while on the Pogo Ball!

I can confirm that they are selling these again. I was rather shocked to see them, as parents are so much more uptight about kids getting injured these days it seems like. Found it at Toys R Us near the pogo sticks and moon shoes.

I tried one at camp on a brick patio. Friends cheered me on as i hit the 250 mark, counting as i bounced, then around 260 i got too high and lost my balance and slammed face first into the bricks. ever see the family guy episode where chris smashes peters head between two logs? yeah, thats what i looked like.
