Romper Stompers:

One of my first major let-downs, when the actual product failed to live up to the marketing hype. They looked like so much fun on tv. I thought they'd make me alot taller. And then when I was told I wasn't allowed to use them on the stairs, well I just totally lost interest...

I always hated that they hurt my feet!

I believe we had every single toy pictured in that ad. How funny. I always loved that goofy punching clown. :)

CJ: I guess alot of kids had romper stompers. I don't remember them hurting my feet, though. do you have big feet??

CTG: I think I had the punching clown too but not sure..

For my oldest's 7th birthday 2 years ago, some friends of ours made him some "romper stompers" the old-fashioned way using coffee cans and rope. They got an awful lot of play and have held up well.

No stairs in our house either. ;)

If I had a kid and saw them using these on stairs I'd have a heart attack

We definitely had the romper stompers. The clown looks crazily familiar, too :)

Cindy: He also came as a jack-in-the-box toy. I had that too. I had alot of stuff..
