Have only had this rope for a short time but already have noticed the benefits of regular skipping. When weather is nice outside on the patio or inside when it's not. Make sure you don't hit any light fittings on the ceiling. I recommend using a training exercise mat about six feet long which is cushioned ie rubber so then it softens the impact of jumping up and down. Also a good pair of cushioned shoes like trainers tennis shoes etc. I have found my crocs are very good and comfortable keeping the feet aerated. This is a very well made rope in a selection of very bright colours. So hard to choose. I went for a bubblegum pink and another one in peppermint green. There are also extension handles which just screw into the existing handles which enable you to do more tricks as you improve. Have not got there yet!, but started very poorly with only a couple of skips, now up to 30+ skips in one go. certainly gets your heart working and a very healthy form of exercise. Will certainly burn any calories away fast and is good fun. Not expensive and a portable piece of equipment. One of the best things I have purchased. Go on the Skip hop web site to see various hints and tips etc. Highly recommend if you want to keep fit and live longer!!!
skip-hop Jump Rope Extender. Just to let you know something that took me ages on the Internet to find out but this rope 2.5 metres long is just the right length for someone 5 foot or 5foot 2 inches tall. To work out the correct length you need to stand on a tape measure and bring up to your armpits and this is the correct length required.

My daughter has become more and more interested in skipping, so i wanted to get her a good skipping rope, not the fancy looking one with one of the characters but that is rubbish basically or a cheap one, the poundland type where the rope is too light and tangles easily making the child frustrated where they can't understand that it is the rope's fault if they fall out of rhythm, not theirs! So i started my hunt, and after carefully looking at pictures of this one and its reviews i decided to buy it.

My daughter could skip already fairly well, not a beginner basically but not a professional either. She liked the rope although it took a little practice to catch the rhythm as it has a bit of weight to it so make for faster skipping, she had to slow just a bit down.

The rope itself i think is great quality and the type i used to have as a child some 20 years ago. The rope itself is light blue plastic tube with plastic handles if your choice. the rope freely rotates inside the handles so it is not glued/fixed to them. Lengthwise i thought it was just right, although i think my daughter would have managed just fine with a 2.4m one. she is just a few months shy of 6 and is in cothes 6-7 or 7-8 at the moment to give you idea of height.

The only thing i would point out is make sure your child does not skip barefoot or in socks, but wears some kind of footwear as if they are just starting to learn, it can be quite painful the rope hits your toes when they fall out of rhythm.

Bought this after several cheap skipping ropes had failed to last the pace. This is bright strong and just the right length for my 8 year old. Think 7 to 10 or 11 would find it right length. Her skipping has improved no end as the weight of the plastic rope gives better rhythm. Very pleased. Only had it a month or so so too early to say if will endure bit certainly looks sturdy enough and price is reasonable too

My daughter was fed up with a slow "rope" and wanted something faster. This is perfect, a good length, and doesn't tangle. Great value for money also, very pleased

I ordered this skipping rope for my grand daughter on a Thursday night. It was very reasonably priced, and I had not seen its like in the shops. I was very pleased to see it arrive by lunchtime on the Friday, and she was delighted with it, takes it to school, and really enjoys using it. The colour choice is good-she has Bubble Gum Pink!

Excellent rope for learning to skip. Adults version would also be good for speed skipping.
