Head over heels about Gymnastics

I was approached recently and asked to review Head over heels about Gymnastics Volumes 1 & 2. The books arrived Saturday and the girls were keen to get started straight away, they enlisted the help of two of their friends as well. They took it all very seriously, getting water bottles and iPods, and going for a 5 minute jog around the block to warm up.


They then set about practicing shapes and jumps, handstands and cartwheels. The books are great as they stand on their own so are easy to read while practicing.


We all went out in the afternoon and we continued to try out our new skills. (I may have shown of a little with my one handed cartwheels!) We are a little way off the pair and trio balances , although S and her friend M had a go at a few stands, but it gives us something to work on.


The books are really easy to follow, the children managed it without help, and the pictures are really clear. At £11.99 rrp each they are well worth the money, there is also an available App at £3.99. You can buy Volume 1: Boys & Girls Floor Skills here and Volume 2: Pair and Trio Balances here.

Disclosure: I received these books free to review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    what a great idea, I’d have loved this as a child


    A great incentive to keep kids enjoying exercise! I never was any good at two handed cartwheels, let alone one! 😀


    My daughter would absolutely love this, it looks like lots of fun!

    They look really great fun! What age would you say they are best for?


      My two year old had a go at joining in but I would say best suited from four up

    Sounds like a great way to get children exercising and having fun at the same time. Glad they enjoyed them 🙂

    These look great, anything to get the kids exercising gets a thumbs up from us 🙂


    What a fab, fun, active book for kids. Anything that gets them active is great by me

    It’s great that they have really enjoyed these books and found them easy to follow.


    I really like the sound of the app. It would be perfect for going out and about and giving the kids some fun in the park


    very impressed you can do one handed cartwheels! I could never master the skill of cartwheels in general! x


    Eliza wants to start gymnastics, this looks like a good book to help

    What an interesting idea, mind you I have the opposite problem, trying to get my kids to stay still!
