Looking for the best jump rope for your kid? You’re not alone. Jumping rope, after all, is one of the purest pastimes of summer (along with riding scooters, eating ice cream, and family beach days). It’s also a great way for your child to learn a bit more about coordination while having fun, spending time outdoors, and of course, burning off excess energy.
