It was my daughters birthday a few weeks back and, as usual, her grandparents went over the top in buying her presents. One of the presents they bought her in fact really brought back a few memories of my childhood as I had had a similar version of it when I was about her age. The present in...

“Calling all swingers!”

Fun for all ages.

Don't get in the way of the ball!

If simple ideas are always the best, Swingball has all the makings of a classic toy. It was voted outdoor toy of the year 2003 by the Toy Retailers Association. ~What is it?~ *************** A tennis ball is attached to the end of a piece of string, the other end being loosely affixed to a post...

Can be dangerous if not used with care.

Swingball is a tennis ball on a line looped to a pole at the top end where there is a spiral. The pole is then put in the ground with the spike at the bottom (the old version) or put into a base, weighted with water, sand or other ballast, as you would with a garden parasol (the new version)...

“Let's Go Round Again.”

Great fun, keeps kids occupied.

Pole can be used to maim other children.

It's weird - you can buy your children the latest games console, a television to accompany it and a lifetime's supply of games, and yet they'll say they're bored. And yet you can present the with a metal pole with a tennis ball attached and you won't hear a peep from them for hours. I know this...

Last christmas myself and my partner were trying to find toys for my 7 year old son, we were on the lookout for something different from the usual toys that we buy him, he is a child that loves to go outside to play rather than stay in and play, so we were looking for toys that you can play...

Somebody will get hurt!

Charlottes 7th birthday fell slap bank in the middle of the heatwave in August so we decided to buy her an outdoor toy that we could all use. I remembered when I was small I had a Swingball but didn't for one minute think they made them, so when I spotted one while I was browsing through the...

geeky bats

As a child 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...

“Just hit the ball”

published 19/05/2012

Sturdy, well made, hours of fun

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 product:* The...

“Swing Bo Selecta”

Great Game

Picking 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...

Portable, fun outdoor toy for all ages

Need 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...

I was bought one of these for a 12th birthday, and immediately I was apprehensive about it, as I am rubbish at tennis! My dearest daddy went out and plunged this blue metal pole into the ground and handed me an unsightly, huge, yellow bat and hit the ball on a string. It goes round and round and...

Filling 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...

Great height for young children to play

Base is heavy once you put water or sand in

This is the 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...
