Aldi is Selling Bee Happy Hoppers, Dupes of Rody Ride-On Toys

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

If you have kids or grandkids, you might be familiar with Rody, the inflatable bouncy horse toy that children can ride on. A name-brand Rody can be pricey, with some of them on Amazon going for around $60. Years ago, I remember a friend of mine getting excited because she found a Rody for a bargain price at a garage sale.

If you don’t want to shell out the money for a name-brand Rody and can’t find any on the secondhand market, you do have another option. For a limited time, Aldi is selling knockoff Rody bouncing toys for less than a third of the price of the name brand.

What We Know:

Bee Happy Hopper

Bee Happy Hoppers are Aldi Finds, so they’re only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back later. Aldi does not offer online ordering if these are sold out at your local store.

These are scheduled to arrive in stores on April 24th, 2024.

These cost $12.99 each at the time of publication. As mentioned above, that’s a lot less than what a name-brand Rody sells for. The Aldi hoppers come in four different varieties: a corgi dog, a unicorn, a rabbit, or a dinosaur.

These are sold under the Bee Happy brand. There is not a company named Bee Happy. Instead, that is the private label Aldi uses for toys it sources from various suppliers.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t tried these, so we don’t know how well they work or how durable they are. Also, Aldi has not yet published information about the measurements for these ride-on toys or what kind of weight limit they have. We write open threads so readers can discuss Aldi products.
