Hi Ladies!


Here's the deal I want to buy my 7 year old DS a hippity hop for Christmas (he has SPD and loves the one at school) and I want to get my 2.5 year old DD a tricycle. The problem is my 13 year old DS (ADHD, PDD-NOS, SLD, SPD, the list goes on and on with his diagnosis) will most likely break them. He has broken so many of his siblings toys because he is too big (5'10", 130lbs) for them but I can't keep him off of them. Suggestions??? Do they make Hop Balls in adult sizes? We are getting a 14ft trampoline for the backyard. Sensory ideas for big kids so I could redirect him would be great.

Here's the first one that came up, but I'm sure there are others.
