Throwback Thursday: Skip-it

Let’s bring this Throwback Thursday wayyyyy back and remember maybe one of the best toys on the playground if you were a child growing up in the 90’s. Skip-it probably ruined many friendships and caused a billion fights, but it was easily the the best toy of my generation. It was the only-child’s dream toy. You could basically play jump rope without needing any other human interaction. Can you imagine kids using this today? I mean, that would require them to actually go outside and put their phones down for 5 seconds, but I would love to see the Skip-it make a comeback. There is 100% certainty if I tried using one today, I would break both of my ankles and end up flinging the thing through someones windshield. Those mallets on the end that had the counter on it hurt like hell every single time it would nick you right in the ankle bone, but that didn’t stop us from playing. But who am I kidding? These are way too dangerous for kids these days. Maybe in another 30 years they’ll come back around. Until then, we will let this commercial bring us back to the glory days.
