Fun for Outdoors

Now that we've had the time change and the weather is nice, I've been spending time outside with my kids when returning home from work. We do a variety of activities, but what seems to get the most play is this Air Scoop set. My 6-year old daughter and 10-year old son enjoy it, as do my wife and I. In fact I plan on purchasing a second set so that we can all play at the same time. The included wiffle ball doesn't fly very far, but its slower travel in the air makes it easier to catch for the younger ones.

It is made from a light plastic that flexes easily. In fact, I'm surprised it hasn't cracked yet after a few months of heavy use. The little covers at the base of the handles can pop off, but hold firmly when stuck back on. The only other negative is that the wiffle ball is SO light, it bounces out of the catcher if one isn't careful. We've learned to cushion the impact when catching so it isn't really a big deal. It adds to the challenge in fact.

Those few niggles are nothing major though. If you want a set that feel more sturdy, buy a more expensive one. Overall this is a fun lawn game set for a minimal cost. As I said, I plan on getting another so that should say it all.
