Bouncy Bands® for Chairs

Promoted Skills

Product Description

Kids are more productive and spend more time on task when they can move! Bouncy Bands are a heavy-duty solid rubber bungee-like cord that attach to the legs of a chair or desk to allow kids to discretely exercise their legs while sitting. Kids with short legs can enjoy being able to rest their feet on the Bouncy Band instead of having them dangle all day. Bouncy Bands are quiet and don't distract others, so they are a great tool for the classroom setting!
