Space hoppers may not be the most glamorous form of locomotion ever invented, but fun and glamour rarely seem to go hand in hand. What they are though is one of the best ways you can have fun with rubber and a footpump without risk of hitting the tabloids.
If you were a child of the seventies then you probably had a space hopper. Back then they had strange horns, a goofy smile and came in any colour you wanted, as long as it was orange. As anyone who ended up in tears after drunk uncle Mike took a turn could testify, they were also built for kids.
The odd ball brings space hoppers bouncing uncontrollably into the new millennium. Inflating up to 63cm in diameter, odd-ball space hoppers are robust enough to take an adult. They also have a sporty new racing look slick enough to wipe the goofy grin off the face of the 1970's original.
Perfect for back-yard racing, a leisurely bounce in the country or even, god forbid, for the kids to play with, we think that Odd Ball Space Hoppers are a great bit of retro fun brought bang up to date.
