Speed Stacking Cups Re-released Spring 2013 – Trickin’ Awesome
Sport Stacking Cups from Speed Stacks
So the activity is called ‘sport stacking’, and equipment is ‘stacking cups’, and the leading brand is ‘Speed Stacks’. Try saying that three times fast.
I’ve just seen that Speed Stacks have re-released their Sport Speed Stacking sets, and since they are such a quirky, fun, and developmentally beneficial toy, they are definitely worthy of a mention on the blog.
For around $30 you get 12 stacking cups, a training DVD, a mat and a precision timer.
This looks like great fun, but it is also hugely beneficial for the development of hand-eye co-ordination, ad bi-later co-ordination (the ability to use both sides of the body at the same time to perform). This helps can help improve anything from simply writing on a piece of paper, and reading (notice how the text crosses across the mid-line of the body), to fast-paced ball sports like football and basketball.
Take a look at this clip from Speed Stacks about what it takes to become a champ. I can’t believe what some of these kids can do!
