KOTTGEISERING, Germany (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Skipping is no longer merely child’s play.

With PowerSkip shoes, chipper skippers get an extreme boost in height and speed while frolicking around.

The PowerSkips look like a pair of aluminum skis that stand upright and use aerodynamic spring technology to give a person the sensation of soaring like a kangaroo.

Spokesperson Andrea Bock says the product will ruin regular skipping, skiing, and even jumping on a trampoline for people forever because none of those activities will be able to compare.

She assures that the extreme toy is the “ultimate” in fun and gives people the chance to feel and act like a real life superhero with mega powers.

However, she doesn’t advise anyone to fight crime or jump off buildings while wearing the PowerSkips just yet.
