My Dad made a pair of stilts for my nephews 7th Birthday. He might be too small to use them yet. When my Dad brought them over, everyone tried them out, and my brother was the only one who could walk in them. He got right on, and just walked away laughing. As soon as I heard this I knew I'd have to get on them. My brother and I had a pair when we were younger, as well as a pogo stick which I remember being very good at. When my brother brought the stilts out, I did hesitate awhile getting on. But as soon as I got up, I was able to walk in them. My brother said he couldn't be out done, so decided that he was going to juggle while walking on stilts. And yes, it turns out he is a better circus monkey than I am. I tip my hat to him.
