Help me find a cool birthday gift for a boy who likes to bounce.

My boyfriend's son will be 12 in a couple of weeks. He's generally a glued-to-Minecraft type of kid, but I recently gave him a hand me down pogo stick and, lo and behold, he loves it! He's outside practicing on the thing almost daily and keeps trying to beat his last record of continuous jumps. This is great - he's happy, and boyfriend's happy that he's getting off the computer and getting air and exercise. I'd like to get him something for his birthday that will encourage more outside play that involves balance, jumping, or coordination, since he appears to be good at that. He has a skateboard and skooter (both are dusty). Under $50 would be great.
He also has a 9 year old sister who he plays well with, so it could be something designed for more than 1 player. Any ideas?
