A good every day toy!,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Galt Jungle Pals Skittles (Baby Product)
Height of skittles: 15cm (6 inch) approx.
Diameter of bowling ball: 9cm (3.5 inch) approx.
Included with this purchase: transparent plastic carry case.
Six skittles and one bowling ball, each skittle has a rattle inside as does the bowling ball.
The skittles are perfectly flat bottomed which allows them to sit steadily on a carpet surface. Moreover they are light weight which means its easy to knock over the skittles with even the most gentle of throws with the bowling ball.
Colours are fresh and vibrant with each skittle being coloured differently. The skittles have a home-made look about them they are not perfect. This toy is easily fit for purpose but nothing special, whilst I am glad I purchased it the skittles were a little dusty and raggedy. For this reason I would not recommend as a present as it doesn't look anything special. Its quite simply an every day toy and by that standard it performs perfectly.
I guess this size would suit the younger child (12 months) , in hindsight I wish I had checked the dimensions as I had imagined the toy to be of a greater size.
As for learning and educational potential I don't think you can expect much from this toy, thats not what it was designed for, the idea is to interact and have fun!
