For the past 2 1/2 weeks I had the pleasure of having my 6 1/2 year old grandson Brady stay with me. During his visit, we took a trip to Hilton Head Island to see some dear friends who also have young children. One of the kids toys that fascinated me was something called a ‘Champion Sports Swing Ball’. The description for this item is: “Swing Ball is great for coordination and timing. Put your ankle in the 5-1/2 in ring and swing your leg to get the ball moving. Ball is attached to an 18 in long cord. Swing Ball keeps kids moving, and can be used indoors or outdoors.” One thing for sure is that you must be coordinated to time the action or you will surely trip. Brady picked this up and was proficient immediately. In fact, his quick acclamation to this almost led me to try it myself but my common sense kicked in and remembered the new hip and knee that I have acquired in the last few years. No need to test how strong they really are!
