This review is from: Vtech KidiActive 2-in-1 Skipping Rope (Toy)
What makes this skipping rope different is the maths features. There are a few different settings. For the younger child simple counting from one to ten. Then you can increase the number as your child gets more confident right up to 100. Again as they become more confident it can be changed to counting by twos, or fives or even tens. For the slightly older child this skipping rope can be used to learn their time tables. It runs from 1 right up to 10 and again you can set the level to suit your child. Finally is the music mode. We have found the batteries to last well, and we are still using the ones provided without any slowing of the voice.

Of course firstly this is a skipping rope. It works well with a taller person, but my little girl still finds she is a little too small for it. Age recommendation is three years plus, so if at 4 she is too small I am not sure it would suit a younger child. As your child jumps the sensors let the interactive features know your child has jumped. In a nice clear, friendly voice the skipping rope will shout out the numbers with your child. The handles have worn very quickly.

There are instructions on how to change it to a dance ribbon. This is fairly easy to do, but it does require an adult to do it rather than the child themselves. My daughter still really likes this feature of the toy and it helps to add something a little different. This adds another avenue of play once she becomes bored with the skipping. It helps make the appeal last.

It has helped my little girl become more confident with her counting skills, and as it counts in a variety of numbers it has introduced her to counting in different ways. Before there is no way she would have attempted to count in fives, but now she is confident that she can do it. Just having something to keep count with her, so if she does get lost along the way she can be guided in the right direction seems to help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skipping Rope, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vtech KidiActive 2-in-1 Skipping Rope (Toy)
This was bought for my daughters's 5th birthday and, although she is quite tall, it had to be adjusted so much that the extra loop made skipping even more hazardous than normal! While it is great that it is adjustable, in hindsight I would have rather purchased a rope that was the correct size for her and buy her a replacement when she gets bigger. The handles are very large for a little girl to hold and my daughter finds the talking annoying and so never has it on.

Despite all of that, this was my daughter's favourite present (and it was the cheapest)! She would give it 5 stars and I would give it 2!!!

I only really bought this because it was heavily discounted. However I was very impressed with it, children can learn their times tables as they skip!

Overall the item is good, helps with neumerical counting; however getting the package open was a task in itself. My daughter was anxious, I couldnt get the package open in time because of all the safety ribbons they had.
