Product Description

Product Description

This great introduction to Swingball for younger children includes soft grip checker bats, a soft foam ball an all-surface base.

Manufacturer's Description

The perfect introduction to Swingball for the youngest players. With this classic game, there's no need to worry about those big hits over the fence or into the flower bed--everything you need is right there. Featuring a ball swinging on its string and a solid base unit, kids can be sure that the ingredients to this game are always right there in the garden.

Play starts with the tether positioned in the middle of the spiral. Each player takes it in turns to hit the ball, one hitting clockwise, the other anticlockwise. The tether will move up or down the spiral, dependent on the direction of the hit.

The aim of the game is to get the tether to the top or bottom of the spiral first. This Swingball is great for all ages and a wonderful way to develop hand-eye co-ordination. Get outside this summer.

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 5 year old and (almost) 2 year old have played with this in the garden. Last week we took it to a beach party and it was a great hit with the children aged between 3 and 6ish. My little one did put his teeth into the ball so I may have to replace it at some point but I believe they can be bought separately.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought the swingball for my niece Holly for her 5th brirthday. Her mother says it is great and suitable for 5 year olds. Holly loves playing with it and as it is also mobile it can be taken on days out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Biggest waste of money ever! 13 May 2011
Product Packaging:Standard Packaging
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
There is nothing positive that I can say about this swingball set at all.

Its poorly constructed and fiddly to set up. The plastic is so light and flimsy that actually playing a game of swingball is impossible because the ball simply can not hold enough momentum to carry the cord.

I have tried playing this with my daughter several times and it never lasts more than a couple of minutes because game play is impossible.

When I move house, this will be one of the boxes that goes in the bin. Save yourself the bother and do not buy this product. I will be making the effort to search out a proper swingball set.

This is a great outside toy, well made and conveniently packs away to store or take out. However, contrary to a couple of reviewers, I think this is not suitable for 3 year olds. The bats are nice and small and lightweight but you have to give the ball a mighty hit to send it round. Our grandson is nearly 4, admittedly quite a small child, but he struggled to make any impact on the ball. We are putting it away until next summer.

Excellent first swingball and good for indoor use during the winter months. Easy to assemble and good for eye hand co-ordination.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont buy this swingball 23 Jun 2012

Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
We have tried to play a game of swingball with this set and it has just been a big disappointment. I am so very sorry I didn't do any research on this as I agree with other negative comments. I know that swingball is a great game and will try and get a metal one. What a total waste of money.

This is the sort of naff toy that can be found in landfill.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ideal first swingball
The soft ball is ideal and I like that it is portable. Not sure it will last my daughter all that long as it isn't very tall. I also think it could be stronger
