  • Everyone on this street has little kids and has one. We are putting ours up in two weeks. Can't wait. The way my house is set up, I can watch them while I'm cleaning the kitchen or cooking. And they won't be begging to go to the neighbors.

  • I don't have a child this age, but when I was his age I had a juggle gym and it was RAD. My mom (single parent) had friends that had kids my age, so my mom and her friends would be on the back porch talking, etc while us kids played. As I got older it stayed pretty rad and my mom would get me paints so I could add pretty designs on it, like flowers, etc. My gram, who we lived with my entire life, refused to let me in the house after my homework was done except for bathroom breaks, so I got a lot of exercise using it. ... I miss it so much.
