This gift idea comes from the birthday girl's mom.  This is all I know about the item:  1)  It is an outdoor toy, 2) It is something you "skip" over, 3) It may have something "added" (attached?) to it, and 4) They saw it at Target.

 

I tried searching the toy section of Target's website.

 

I'm hoping someone reads this and knows exactly what it is and can provide additional details.  Preferably the name of the item or at least a better idea of the purpose/goal/activity involved and/or the size, color, etc.

 

TIA,

 

~Cath

Its called 'skip it' or 'just jump'.  Basically its a ball attached to a rope and you slip the rope around you ankle. When you move your foot the ball makes a large circle and you jump around it.

Zebra,

 

I just heard from the mom.  Sounds like that's exacly what the B-Day girl wants.

 

I know those are relatively inexpensive so I might have to come up with something else to go with it

 

Thanks again,

 

~Cath

Cathy- how about sidewalk chalk, outdoor paint, bubbles, something 'arts and crafty'?  

 

I like to give (and receive) consumable gifts

I was going to second the 'skip it' suggestion. I loved mine when I was a kid. I think these days they only have the kinds with the built in counters but if their is an option make sure you get that one. Once you get good counting the skips gets HARD!
