Not bowled over

Advantages: Fun for a while
Disadvantages: Do not stand up well
My son was given these Skittles for his 3rd birthday from his Aunt. They are made of quite sturdy plastic and you get 6 skittles; two red; two blue and two green. In addition the set comes with 2 yellow plastic bowling balls, about the size of one of those mini footballs.
The bowling balls have three finger holes that are a little big for my three year old and just big enough for adults sized fingers, so they can be used my everyone. The bowling balls are fairly light weight, though plenty big enough to knock skittles down.
They are designed to be used indoors and outdoors and are easy to set up and cost around £6 from the Early Learning Centre. They are a good idea in that they help with hand and eye coordination and are a way of learning through play without it being to boring for children.
Although they are fun to play with and are made of plastic so they can be easily cleaned if being used outside, they are not very good at standing up unless the surface is very flat outdoors and they will blow over if it gets a bit windy, so as outdoor toys they are not great, and as for using them on grass, I found it practically impossible to get them all to stay up at the same time!. They can be used indoors and the results are much better, though we are lucky enough to have a few large reception rooms to play in so things do not broken in the excitement of bowling.
Overall I would not recommend these to others as they are not really fit for purpose, although they are inexpensive, my son found them to be very frustrating as they would not stand up and it just ruins the overall experience.
Summary: Poor toy overall
