Choosing the skip-hop children’s skipping ropes

skipping in schools

Skipping ropes are a classic childhood toy that can provide endless hours of fun whilst bringing the enormous benefits of exercise. Our skipping ropes come in a variety of materials and styles, each with its own unique benefits. In this article, we will focus on the benefits of our ergonomic plastic handles and our plastic chords, as well as the benefits and why you might choose beaded ropes, for kids.

Plastic Handles

One benefit of the plastic handles on a skipping rope is that they are very lightweight and easy for children to hold onto. This can be especially important for younger children who may not have the strength or hand-eye coordination to handle a heavier skipping rope. Plastic handles are also easy to grip and comfortable to hold, making it easier for children to use the skipping rope for an extended period of time allowing them to concentrate on mastering all the skip-hop skipping skills.

Plastic Cords children’s 2.5m adjustable speed skipping rope

Plastic chords are another popular choice for skipping ropes because they are also resistant to wear and tear, which means they can withstand the rough and tumble play that children enjoy at home or in the playground. This makes plastic ropes a durable, all-weather and long-lasting choice for children’s skipping ropes.

Beautiful Colours

In addition to the practical benefits of plastic handles and chords, they also offer some aesthetic advantages. Plastic handles and ropes come in a wide range of colours, allowing children to choose a skipping rope that matches their personal style or favourite colour. This can make skipping ropes more appealing to children, encouraging them to use them more often.

Beaded Cords children’s beaded skipping ropes

Our second type of skipping chord that is extremely popular among children is our beaded skipping rope. Beaded skipping ropes are made with small soft plastic beads strung along the length of the rope. These beads add a fun and colourful element to the skipping rope and can also serve as a counting tool for children as they skip making a gentle clack on the floor.

Benefits of the beaded cord

Beaded skipping ropes can be beneficial for children in a number of ways. First and foremost, they can provide an added element of fun to skipping. The beads can create a satisfying sound as they hit the ground, and the visual appeal of the colourful beads can be engaging for children. Beaded skipping ropes can also help to improve hand-eye coordination, as children are more able to focus on the movement of the beads while skipping.

Some of the benefits of skipping for kids

In addition to the benefits of plastic handles and ropes, and beaded ropes, skipping ropes can provide a number of other benefits for children. Skipping ropes are a great form of exercise that can help children to improve their physical fitness, coordination, and balance. Skipping ropes can also help to improve children’s mental and cognitive skills, as they must focus on the rope and the timing of their jumps.

Inexpensive and Portable

Skipping ropes are also a relatively inexpensive and portable toy that can be easily taken on the go. Children can use skipping ropes indoors or outdoors, making them a versatile option for play and exercise. Keeping it tidy and packing it for fun on the go is a doddle as all children’s skipping ropes come in a zip-lock plastic bag.
