Advantages: Sturdy, well made, hours of fun
Disadvantages: Expensive compared to similar models
We have a static caravan at the seaside and we like to keep lots of products to keep us entertained. When I was younger, I had a swing ball cemented into the back garden so I decided we must buy one.
Recognising Mookie as a well known and reputable brand, I decided to buy one.
The swingball comes in a nice yellow suitcase style box which also doubles up as the base.
Inside the box there are three blue poles (one of which has the coil on top with the tennis ball attached by string) and two bright yellow checker bats
If there are two of you playing, make sure the string is in the middle of the spiral, you both stand opposite each other, one person hits the ball clockwise and the aim of the game if for the other person to hit the ball back anti-clockwise. If you miss, the string starts to work its way up or down the coil and the winner is the person who gets it to the top or bottom first.
Assembly is quite simple, fill the base with water and clip the lid on top. Screw together the three inter-connecting poles and then screw the pole into the base and you are ready to go.
*Price & Availability:*
Can be brought from Amazon, Argos and Toys R Us, the RRP is around £30, we brought ours for around half this price.
Me & my other half love to play this (although I am not very good at it!), he is quite competitive and hits it to me too hard and we normally end up falling out!!
I have found this is a great way to work out too, although you more or less stand in the same position, the next day I can feel that my arms and chest have been working!
It has quite a big base which makes the product really sturdy, my other half hits the ball as hard as he can and it has never toppled over.
Because the poles are interconnecting, you can actually make smaller, Lauren has played with it a couple of times and I find it great at introducing hand and eye co-ordination, although 9 times out of 10 she will miss, she likes to have a good old swing as the ball goes by!
I would thoroughly recommend this product, hours of fun at very little price.
For me, I would give 4 out of 5 stars just because it is slightly expensive compared to other brands on the market, but the quality is fantastic and I suppose you get what you pay for!
Thanks for reading.
