Throwback Children's Stilts


I remember these, made from empty food cans and string.

Great fun.

Now the materials are 21st–century but the idea remains the same.

    From the website:

    It's old-fashioned foot-stompin' fun as kids balance and walk on these sturdy plastic cups, pulling the nylon rope handles to balance.

    4-3/4"-high stilts have a wider 5-1/4"-diameter base to help prevent toppling.

    In red, yellow or blue — we'll choose for you.

    Indoor/outdoor fun for ages 3 and up.

Those (the plastic version) have been around for over 20 years. I used them back then because we only had one 'real' pair of stilts.
