Jumping Fun for Everyone!

Hey there, welcome to Edie’s Elastics!

Elastics (also known as ‘French Skipping’ and ‘chinese jump rope’) has been around for decades and has truly stood the test of time for keeping kids entertained and active.  It ruled the schoolyard in the 90’s and its fast becoming a sensation all over again!

Simplicity at it’s finest, elastics is a game of jumping between the elastics at different heights to pass levels, some with chants and jingles.  Ideally three people play together, but using a heavy chair at either end to hold the elastics also works a treat!

All of our elastics are packaged with instructions and make the perfect gift.

Happy Jumping xx
