No more running after you balls...????

Advantagesgreat family fun and a great way to keep fit

Disadvantagescan hurt if ball whacks you in the face...

"...was the good old fashioned swing ball, the only tennis game you could play if you only had a small garden to play it in. The version I remember having was dull metal poles with a silver, and pretty sharp spiral for the string of the ball to swing around. Then there was the flimsy plastic bats that shattered into a million pieces the first time you made good contact with the ball, forcing you to then use a cut up piece if wood as your ‘new’ bat. This ..." Read review

Calling all swingers! Review with images

AdvantagesFun for all ages.

DisadvantagesDon't get in the way of the ball!

"...the coil where it will swing freely. In conclusion, although I am not much of a sport person, I enjoy this game and the good clean fun and interaction with my family it allows. I don't like playing it for hours on end but in quick bursts throughout the day. I believe it to be a good way of adding a little exercise into your day, both for adults and children. Although you couldn't describe it as particularly cheap, it is excellent value for money ..." Read review

Swing Balls for Therapy! Review with images

AdvantagesGives aerobic exercise and encourages good co-ordination.

DisadvantagesCan be dangerous if not used with care.

"...my hubby to put the swing ball back in the garden for me. I found it best to practise on my own. In the privacy of our garden, on grass, my hand-eye co-ordination improved, as well as giving me some aerobic exercise. And so our Swingball was given a new lease of life. This shows how durable our Swingball has been. While we are still using the old version, I have had experience of the new version in a friend’s garden and I believe it has been ..." Read review

Rope burns and black eyes - oh, and lots of fun!

AdvantagesIt's fun while the novelty lasts, a bit of a workout if you're playing with another adult, stores away nice and tidily

DisadvantagesSomebody will get hurt!

"...were learning how to slowly swing the ball around everything went fine but then I heard a scream and Charlotte had learned how to hit the ball harder and it had slapped into four year old Alice's face. One bag of frozen peas and lots of sympathy later, Alice goes out for another go. And comes straight back in with a matching red mark on the other side of her face. OK, so Alice is banned from playing with Charlotte. Mark decides to trust me to watch ..." Read review

Let's Go Round Again.

AdvantagesGreat fun, keeps kids occupied.

DisadvantagesPole can be used to maim other children.

"...the packaging to reveal a Swing Ball: ***Packaging*** Now, Swing Ball's have been made by hundreds of varying manufacturers, and therefore you will encounter many different types of packaging. But I will describe mine to you. Mine was made by MB, and the packaging showed a typical family playing with their Swing Ball on a long, sloping lawn. A clever device that, using images of "paradise" to promote a product. But it just seemed all the ..." Read review

Mummy I Want A Go Now !!! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat Fun For The Whole Family. Getting Kids Active Again. Cheap.

DisadvantagesHurts When You Get Hit By The Ball.

"...a pole when placing the swing ball together. The poles do come out fairy easy again so you can adjust the height when ever you feel the need to. BATS. The bats are large and chunky with holes going through the middles of them. As you can see from the picture above and my pictures that I have added. They are blue and quite large. Juts a little tip don't Hold the bats to tight as they do give blisters. There is not a lot of room from ..." Read review

swinging good fun!

Advantageswill keep the kids happy for hours!

Disadvantagesyou may get a few hits to the head if your not careful.

"...christmas catalogue, I came across Swing ball, a game for two players, it looked quite good and sturdy in the catalogue and it came in its own carrycase so would be good for storing away when you are not using it. This toy was only 19.99, not a bad price for a toy that you can get hours of fun from. On christmas day my son was over the moon to find swingball with the rest of his toys and was desperate to play with it, but its not such a good ..." Read review

Now you can Swing (ball) anywhere Review with images

AdvantagesPortable, fun outdoor toy for all ages

DisadvantagesNeed to fill the base for best stability

"I was a teenager when swingball first come out, and since then there have been many imitations, but the original swingball has been all conquering. However, in the 20 years (is it really that long), since it first appeared the swingball has undergone something of a makeover, and has spawned a few new varieties, including the one I'm going to tell you about right now, which instead of needing a spike driven into the ground, comes in a smart carry case ..."

Just hit the ball

AdvantagesSturdy, well made, hours of fun

DisadvantagesExpensive compared to similar models

"...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 product:* 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 ..." Read review

For Kids Who Don't Grow Up

AdvantagesFun, fun, fun.... oh and more fun!

DisadvantagesIt goes round, and round... oh look ist going round again

"...recently bought a new, revolutionary swing ball, in which, the pole is inserted into the provided box, and then filled with a substance of your choice. This is to weigh the thing down, preventing any movement and any unsightly holes! The Packaging. Now this was a little strange, as there were a couple of kids in a blurred motion of frenzy flinging their bats in the direction of the ball (which was also blurred!), yet they were looking right at ..."

Andy Murray eat your heart out!

Advantagesfun

Disadvantagesgeeky bats

"...my sister and I loved swing ball and spent hours whacking the ball to each other, making grunts and snorts and emanating the tennis players on the television. After a few years of pretending I was grown up I forgot about the game, until I went to a family BBQ and the game was brought out the shed, the cobwebs dusted off and a game was begun. My sister and I relived out childhood and once again I was beat my younger sibling! After a good energetic ..." Read review

Swing Bo Selecta

AdvantagesGreat Game

DisadvantagesPicking the design

" Swingball is a game that I spent a huge amount of time playing as a child, and in my teens, and infact I still play it from time to time today (in my thirties!) It was, and still is a great concept - a game of tennis for two people, with no large area needed to enjoy the game, and no worries about causing any damage to any houses or cars, and without the expense of having to re-buy tennis balls that go missing. So what is swingball?? Swingball ..." Read review

"Which way do you swing ???"

AdvantagesPortable

DisadvantagesFilling the base when you are out and about

"Whenever I look for toys for my son, I have to bear in mind that, as an only child, it is a good idea to get things that he can both play with others and entertain himself with. This is where Swingball comes into it's own. It is a game that can be played with great enjoyment on your own just as much as with other players. So this made an ideal Christmas present 2 years ago ! I cannot find the origins of Swingball, but from my own childhood experience ..." Read review

AdvantagesGreat height for young children to play

DisadvantagesBase is heavy once you put water or sand in

"...Early learning Centre's version of swing ball! It is from age 3 and is a brilliant introduction into swing ball for younger children who may have older siblings who may play with a bigger version! This brightly coloured plastic verison of swimg ball is about 3 and a half foot in height making it perfect for little people! It comes with an orange base which you fill with water or sand to keep it steady. Unfortunately once the base has been filled ..." Read review

WATCH THAT BALL

Advantagesgreat fun for all the family

Disadvantagesreally hurts if ball hits you

"...out and by them a swing ball for christmas last year. The advantage to a swing ball is that the kids and adults can play with it and they will never lose the ball because it is attached to a piece of string which is connected to a large pole . WHAT IS A SWING BALL? **************************** A swing ball consists of a large square base about 40cm by 40cm in size and is blue and yellow in colour you need to fill this base with either water ..."
