Good for very young kids but wish I'd gone for the full sized one
on 21 July 2016
This does the job for very young children, but if your children are older than about 4 I'd go for the full sized version - I wish I had. Our friends have the full sized one and actually our 4 year old is fine with that one. Quality is not bad, but the ball had already faded in the sun after only a week or so, and I suspect that the lightweight plastic tubing won't outlast the year. Good points are that it comes apart easily to pack away into the base, and thus can be easily transported on beach/park day trips etc, and the foam ball doesn't hurt when it hits you. There is also a plastic sleeve around the bottom half of the string which prevents it wrapping around necks etc, which is a reassuring safety feature.
