- About us
Our founder & president, Daniel
Grandmother (Waliki's inspiration)
Based in sunny Florida HopBalls.com's goal is to help parents keep their children active, healthy, happy and busy, by making exercise fun!
Waliki's story began 27 years ago, when our founder tried out a Hop Ball for the very first time. An avid toy expert (thanks to his grandmother Lala, of blessed memory) he knew that he had found something special.
Almost 3 decades later we are bringing this timeless toy back to children (and adults) all over the world. But this time, the Hop Balls is new and improved, with bold colors, the cutest faces, the coolest designs and made only with the finest materials.
We also carry the most original Bounce Houses for unforgettable parties, family gatherings, or for getting much needed exercise during the winter months in basements, garages or playrooms. Can you imagine your child's face in the morning waking up to their very own moon bounce?
For toddlers we proudly offer the Rody Pony! Not just for fun, the Rody Pony also helps children develop a good sense of balance and coordination as they learn and grow.
Our children's Hop Balls are tested according to ASTM F963-11 American standard of toy safety and are free of banned phthalates.

"A space hopper, also known as a skippyball, kangaroo ball, bouncer, hippity hip, hop ball, or a hoppity hop, is a rubber ball with handles which allow one to sit on it without falling off. The goal is to hop around with it, using the elastic properties of the ball to move forward. This can be carried even further by employing several balls and organizing a race.
"In the U.S., the first mass-marketed hopping ball (a version of an earlier European toy*) was the Hoppity Hop... Because of the market and media saturation by this toy, any such ball - regardless of origin - is now generally known in the U.S. by that name (or sometimes 'hippity hop')."
"Other names: Hoppity Hop, Hop Ball, Kangaroo Ball Kangaroo Hopper."
