Attention! Attention! Calling all Lords, Ladies, and all of thy friends and foes!

Let it be known that there is a new challenge to behold, and one that shall provide countless hours of indoor and outdoor fun for some of the youngest residents of your kingdom — and some of the elders, too!

One of this year’s hottest toys is the Waddle Hip Hoppers 2-Pack Jousting Set from Flybar.

A new extension of last year’s Waddle Hip Hoppers brand of inflatable, bouncing creatures, the Jousting Set brings the excitement and majesty of Renaissance Faire to your home. Kids can assume the role of Red Knight or Blue Knight as they command a powerful steed that supports a rider of up to 250 pounds.

Young Knights will face off with the inflatable jousting arms as they bounce, race, and battle on the grounds of thy neighborhood castle. Balancing on each Waddle Hip Hopper is said to help kids build core strength and balance, a welcome benefit to accent the fun!

Each Waddle Hip-Hoppers horse is constructed of heavy-duty PVC to withstand years of enthusiastic play, but the set does include two patch kits, just in case. An elder should be aware that an air pump (sold separately) is the best method of inflation. Each horse also includes easy-grip handles and joust arm hooks.

Now, fare thee well, I must away, but be sure to seek your own adventure within the aisles of your local Walmart. While you may be fortunate enough to secure a Waddle Hip-Hoppers Jousting Set online, the best place to find said wares will be in the brick-and-mortar emporium built by the legendary merchant, Sir Sam Walton of Bentonville.

Good day!
