AdvantagesGreat fun, great quality


"==Tobar Catch Ball Set== The Tobar Catch Ball Set is one of those items that we have had kicking around since I was young and Mum managed to keep it up until now so that we can use it with Jack and he is really enjoying playing with it, much like I did. This set is really old now but you can still pick up the set from a ton of different places both on the high street and online. I think we probably purchased it from Woolworth's when that was ..."

An outdoor game suitable for all the family.

AdvantagesAlmost endless hours of fun, great value for money. Great for co-ordination.

DisadvantagesThere are very few different games you can play with this product.

"...the catch ball set from Tobar was one of my favourite garden toys. I remember this toy because my set was exactly the same as the one in the picture! There is a hard plastic round pad - the similar size to a small dinner plate. On the back of this are a couple of slots through which the black Velcro straps attach so you can wrap them over the backs of your hands and attach them securely to the pads. On the front of the hand held pad is a bright pink ..." Read review

Tobar Catch Ball Set

AdvantagesA good childrens game

DisadvantagesCan get a little tedious after a while

"...my family last year a Tobar Catch Ball Set. The set basically consists of two ‘bats’ which are completely circular and have a Velcro strap behind the bat pad which you use to attach your hand to the bat. The front, circular part of the bat is completely Velcro. The game is made for two players and if you wanted more players, you would have to purchase more than one set. Within the set you also get a tennis style ball. The idea of the game is ..." Read review

Catch ball!

Advantagesfun for children and adults

Disadvantagesball can be hard to remove, sometimes velcro pulls off

"...that I purchased was the tobar catch ball set and it cost me around five pounds for the set. The tobar catch ball set is basically a set which can allow those with poor coordination the opportunity to try and join it at a catch game which makes it ideal for children. In the set you get two catch pads and a catch ball. The catch pads are basically a circular piece of plastic which is covered with Velcro covering the front of it, half of the Velcro ..."

Who Knew a Tennis Ball and Some Velcro Could Be Such Fun?

AdvantagesEasy to play, inexpensive, amusing for a wide age range

DisadvantagesSet is not very robust, difficult for younger children to remove ball between turns

"A neon coloured tennis ball and some velcro-lined plastic discs might not sound the obvious combination for hours of outdoor family fun but that is, in a nutshell, what a simple Catch Ball set consists of. The idea is very simple, making the game easy to play. This is a game for two people with each player having a plastic disc which attaches to their hand using an adjustable strap. This simple design means that the game can be enjoyed by all ..." Read review

Anyone for a game of catch?

AdvantagesCan be used by anyone, anywhere.

DisadvantagesDoes slip on small hands.

"...ball sets. I got this Tobar Catch Ball Set a few years ago as a fun game to play on the beach. It comes with two pads and one ball. The pads have a velcro surface on one side and plastic on the other with adjustable velcro hand straps. The velcro is half green and half pink and the ball is created in a tennis ball fashion but with the green and pink colours also. The idea of the catch ball set is to throw the ball between a pair. This is a ..." Read review
