The wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs. They’re…
Wait. Stop. Hold up.
Their bottoms are made out of springs. And we’re jealous.
Bouncing seems like an infinitely more fun way to travel than anything we’ve come up with in our daily lives. Infinitely.
For starters, you get to wind up. It’s like the movement version of a musical interlude.
And there’s the element of surprise. (This comes in handy for catching b’loons.)
It’s also the best way to enter a scene.
It can be excellent for cheering up friends.
It’s springy. (Double meaning alert.)
It’s an automatic boost of energy (for all parties involved, even Tigger twos).
It’s extremely efficient. Look, mom: no ladder.
It enables you to go over things. (Goodbye, traffic jams.)
It really 2.0s already-entertaining life moments.
It makes for a great motto.
And then there’s the whoop-de-dooper, loop-de-looper,
ali-ooper bounce of The Tigger Movie fame. Fair warning, this one has a very specific requirement: “You can’t bounce the bounce if you can’t even pronounce the bounce!”
It’s a whole different level of bounce-tacular excellence. It makes the rest of the bounces seem ordinary.
Here are the directions:
You swing your leg up high.
And you twist your tail up tight.
Wind up all your springs.
And, with your eyes fixated straight ahead…
You let it all loose.
This one also involves math:
A lot of math:
But that means it’s a scientifically and ergonomically sound way of traveling.
But mostly, no matter which bounce we’re talking about, when all is said and done, it just seems like more FUN (FUN FUN FUN FUN)!
