Save yourself some money and make this awesome toy yourself! Watch the quick instruction video for better details!

Step 1: Materials

Get yourself a piece of pine with the length you prefer. Mine was 60cm. The spring can be purchased but I happened to find one laying around in the garage so I put it to use. Make sure it is strong enough so you can get a decent jump out of it.

Step 2: Drill

Drill a hole for the spring

Step 3: Leg

Make a round 'stick' to attach to the spring and act as the bouncing leg I used maple wood for this part to add durability.

Step 4: Glue

To attach the medal spring to the wooden leg, I mixed wood chips/saw dust with glue and stuffed it in between the spring openings. This method is very sturdy and reliable.

Step 5: Foot Rests

For the foot rests I also used maple wood. I attached it with glue since I couldn't put screws in with all the moving parts inside the pogo stick.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Now sit back and enjoy watching your kids have a good time while counting the money you just saved!
