Wonderful skipping rope, but one problem,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jump Rope Assortment (Toy)
My niece wanted a skipping rope for Christmas and I found it a little difficult trying to find one that wasn't really cheap. I wanted it to be nice enough for a gift and I'm so glad I chose this rope. It comes packaged in a nice box with the ropes recycled credentials written all over it, and the skipping rope itself is good quality. The rope is really nice, thick and sturdy and quite old-fashioned in a wonderful way.
There was only one problem.....when we opened it to check the length of the rope (perfect for a 5 year old or older) we noticed that on the handles there are 2 rectangular openings. All 4 of these (2 per handle) had sharp little cuts in the plastic on one side. It was easily fixed - I filed them down with a nail file to make it smooth again - but I felt I should mention it.
I wouldn't let it put you off at all, just make sure you open up the box to make sure there's no sharp bits before you give it to a child. If not for that it would be 5 stars.
