Ride, Sally, Ride…


“Come along for the ride!”

I was just scrolling through my facebook news feed and I came across a “For sale” advert on my local for sale page.

It said, “barely used, almost as good as new!”

The item was this…

Now, it may only be 9:30am on a weekday, but I took one look at this item and thought, Epic Adult toy. And why would anyone want a second hand one of these – or one at all for that matter?!

The name “iJoy” was enough evidence for me to make my mind up that it was an inappropiate item to be selling on a local for sale page. It seemed a little ‘specalist’…

After googling said item – all in the name of research I hasten to add – I found it wasn’t an adult toy it was, in fact, a piece of exercise equipment.

I watched a YouTube video on how it works and I am afraid to say I literally spat out my Bran Flakes. I’ve not seen anything this funny since Boris Johnson got stuck on that zip wire in front of the press when promoting the 2012 London Olympics…

The advert for the product shows a man trying it out. Every now and then, the camera pans up to his face so you can’t see anything else, and what you’re greeted with is the sight of a man with a very pleased smirk on his face rocking back and forth like he has a starring roll in, ‘Debbie does Dallas’.


The theory behind the iJoy Ride is that it simulates, that’s simulates, not stimulates (very important not to get those two mixed up in this instance), horse riding and makes you use your core muscles and leg muscles to stabilise yourself…think Bucking Bronco in the comfort of your living room. Let’s just hope people close the curtains when they’re having a session on it so the neighbours don’t just see the top half of you have a suspect ‘good time’.

Now I’m sorry, and you may think me very childish (you are probably right, I am a little) but this is just too funny not to watch. Even if it is a bit of fitness equipment, you can’t help but feel a little awkward watching him have a good go…

The bit that cracks me up the most are the 4 different speed settings and the names they’ve given them! Pahahahaha!!!!!

1 – Warm up. “A gentle motion for new riders”.

2 – Taking it easy. “Great for starting a workout programme”.

3 – Getting serious. “For an invigorating ride”. (How funny is that?!)

4 – Pump it up. “For a maximum intensity ride when you’re ready”. (Bloody Genious!)


This has literally made my morning!!!!

If you want to watch more and have a giggle, this retro clip from Richard and Judy is also worth having a look at. I couldn’t stop laughing, especially when the lady turns the speed up and describes it as getting “friskier”. She really has a jolly good ride. I don’t know her name, but I’ve decided to name her Sally. Apparently all Sally wants to do is ride…there’s a song in that 😉

These seem to be retailing at about £200 new, and £90 used if you’re interested… 😉

I wonder how long it’ll take for the one for sale locally to be snapped up??

“Ye Ha!”

    Ah!! Thanks Leanne!! It’s wrong on so many levels isn’t it?! x

    Wait, are you saying you DIDN’T immediately go out and buy this?!?! Pretty sure this is the only exercise equipment that would pay for itself. Think of what a mechanical bull does for a Country and Western bar, your iJoy could do for your playdates and birthday parties. Pony rides are expensive and I can tell you from experience that ponies are a hard sell when it comes to convincing your husband. I wonder what the shipping would be on a mechanical pony? Lol

    Oh my god you HAVE TO GET IT. Think of the blog posts… I can’t believe it’s seriously called the ijoy. That’s just begging to disappoint perverts up and down the country. Thanks for sharing this delightful find with #chucklemums. I feel enlightened.

    Pahahahah!! I enlightened myself last week by finding out about it I can tell you that much!
    I too cannot believe this thing is out there, and that they gave it the name they did, either. It’s too comical, like something form a carry on film!
    Thanks so much for reading and writing Fran! xxx

    I love this SO SO much. (Your post – not the ‘product’ – Although it does look pretty spesh. ) I wouldn’t mind betting that anyone who has actually bought one of these things, didn’t do so for the use it is intended for. Just brilliant. #chucklemums
