These Little Tikes Summer Sports Sets are GREAT FUN!! I would definitely recommend putting AT LEAST ONE of these sets on your Christmas shopping list!!

The T-ball set was a BIG hit (pun intended!), and became an INSTANT FAVOURITE with all 3 kids! We have two 2yr olds (boy and girl twins), and one 4yr old girl, so I was quite surprised (and impressed) at how quickly they all got the idea of what to do: holding the bat properly (after some quick instructions), and swinging it at the ball with controlled GLEE!!

When we brought out the bowling set, the kids were SUPER enthusiastic, running to help each other pick up the bowled over pins, and returning the bowling ball to the bowler (or snaffling it for a turn themselves!). And I must say that when the pins get knocked down, they do make a gratifying 'clatter' noise, so that must increase the kids feeling of success, as I know it did when I had a go! (ha ha). The twins (being the youngest) haven't got the knack of putting their fingers in the right holes of the bowling bowl, however our eldest did. This wasn't a major for the twins though, as they would just hold it with two hands and roll it towards the pins just as successfully (if not a lot less speedier) as if they had rolled it using one hand.

Oh, and don't think these sets are solely for Summer, or that you can't play with them when the weather is bad outside. Our kids used them INSIDE for a good few weeks (while the weather was horrible), and had great fun! The bowling set is fantastic for indoor play, where the hallway can be transformed into a smooth bowling lane (our kids tended to use our lounge a lot though). The T-ball set is a little bit more tricky to play inside (watch the china!) but we managed it, just by having them hit the ball away from things like the TV! The good thing about it all being made of plastic is they can't really do too much damage - mind you - our kids aren't hitting the ball hard enough to 'hit it out of the park' - so if you have a super-swinger maybe outdoors is a better option! Outdoors with the T-ball was an obvious winner, and it happily reminded me of my primary school days playing T-ball out on the sports field.

The golf set was good fun, particularly when played on a smooth, level surface. We found the carpet was a great surface for 'putting' the ball. Out on the lawn is where you can let the kids swing the golf clubs, however our lawn is not flat nor well manicured (lol), so the kids found 'putting' under these conditions a bit too frustrating. Our eldest had better success with this set than the younger two, as I think they aren't quite co-ordinated enough yet to get the full enjoyment out of it. And we LOVED how all the pieces of the set can get tidily put away - obviously a parent was involved in designing this practical feature!

We LOVE Little Tikes products because they are usually ROBUST and well designed. We try to choose Little Tikes over other brands because they are much more likely to outlast other brands, and survive the RIGORS our children expose them to! This sports set is NO EXCEPTION! We can see these games will still be going strong even after our kids have outgrown them!

And I have to say that I have been most remiss in not posting this review sooner - MANY apologies!! I honestly don't know where the time has gone! It feels like only yesterday that we got the sets, but shamefully that was not the case. However, the kids have had a substantial amount of time to play with the sets, so this review is thorough, if not rather late!!

Thanks SOOOO much Kidspot and Planet Fun (and Little Tikes) for achieving the somewhat impossible feat of keeping our kids happily occupied with these games!! :)

They are NOT games the kids play with once and lose interest, as we have found our kids keep on coming back to them. You can see how beneficial they are in developing their eye-hand co-ordination. It also teaches them how to follow basic instructions, and to persevere despite frustration (ie. missing the target and having to try again). It's also great to see the huge amount of enjoyment and sense of accomplishment they get out of playing with these sports sets - like when they hit the ball well, or knock down the pins!

So thanks again for letting us review these FANTASTIC toys! We are going to be using them ALOT for a VERY long time I'm sure! :)

PS. will try to post soon some photos I have taken of our kids playing with the sports sets.

A lovely parcel to get. A little confusing as I received it before the Kidspot email but hey-ho.
In short we are using the games a lot - one or more every day or so, and I'd definitely recommend them as a whole. All in all they seem good quality, robust toys - great for developing coordination and some basic physical skills. Somehow I think the sporting etiquette side of things will be the real challenge!
BOWLING: We started with the bowling - inside because of the weather. I thought the pins made a very satisfying crash when knocked down (because of the beads inside) and my 3yr old daughter enjoyed devising her own pin layout. She seems to enjoy playing but still has some basic sporting concepts to come to terms with! 'Mummy, there are too many to know down - I wanted them all to go in one go!'.
T-BALL: In her own words 'I like playing T-ball with Daddy because we can hit the ball as far as we can'. I like it when they are both out of my hair! But, as Stay-at-home-mum it's been me out in the garden the most. She was able to hit the ball straight away, though we certainly have plenty of fouls, which impressed me. It's certainly been the set we've played with the most.
GOLF: Miss 3 enjoys playing with the items, especially tidying them away but not so keen on the actual game of golf. Could be because we already have a 'Cars' set where you hit the balls into little goals. (Actually it is our second 'Cars' set because they aren't made as solidly as Little Tikes.) Having said all that she wants to play now, and she means NOW. We play this indoors too.

Loved watching the girls all together entertaining themselves with the T-Ball set and all taking turns - with the help of Tyla - Big sister /cousin (7). It had them entertained for -ages while the mummys got to have a cup of tea and catch-up. Such an easy toy to throw in the back of the car and take out with us.

What a treat to come home from hospital with my newborn and find that my toddlers had something waiting for them. The Little Tykes Summer collection arrived with perfect timing and we have had the best week giving each of the items a go.

We started off with the golf set and this was very popular as it was something we had taken out of the toy library before. My 3 year old loved being able to hit off the tee and have a sturdy target to hit into that didn't easily blow away in the wind or fall over - like the older version of the set did. She liked the fact that she could hit and move the lightweight balls easily but seemed to prefer the old caddy which she could pull around behind her, as opposed to the new caddy which you have to carry. I also think that for toddlers it would be best to just have two putters instead of a putter and a wedge to hit with. In most cases the toddler with be playing with a sibling or a friend a similar age rather than by themselves and the wedge is definitely a lot more tricky to hit with. All n all this definitely a fun activity though and we have enjoyed playing it both inside and outside.

Secondly we tried the bowling set on a raining day in the hallway. My youngest (23 months) was rather taken by the finger holes in the bowling ball and I thought it was great that it was so authentic enough that when comes the time to go to a real bowling alley that they will know all how it works. Again the girls really enjoyed this game and I found the pins sturdy and colourful and they stand up easily on a variety of surfaces. Two things that I would like to see added to this set would be firstly adding numbers to the pins so that they could be arranged in order by older kids and you could add numeracy skills to the activity and also it really needs some sort of carry bag to store the pins and ball in, whether it be a fabric drawstring bag or something similar.

Finally, the softball set has been a huge hit with my girls. It is a fantastic way of developing hand-eye coordination and again it is made from sturdy and child friendly materials. The softball set is great how it is adjustable and comes with two balls (we have currently misplaced one in the hedge) it also has a lightweight bat which is manageable for young ones to lift and hit with. We have taken this set to the park and played with it both inside and outside. I have been really surprised with how quickly my girls coordination has improved and they simply love playing with this set - never getting bored.
One minor improvement for the softball set would perhaps be a more secure place to keep the balls when not in use so that they don't get lost or blow away.

Many thanks again for the opportunity to trial these sets of activities. The have been very well received and I have already had visiting friends inquire how much they cost because they intend to buy their own children some for Christmas. I'm sure we still have hours of fun ahead of us too!!

my review: Bowling set
Well my son couldnt wait to get stuck into these and seeing as it was a rainy day we set it up immediatly- after being shown twice how to do it my 21/2 yr old got it right away- normally he gets in trouble for knocking things around and this he just LOVED, they have been bashed about and used as hammers etc and are so strong and sturdy and you can see they will last for ages, we got all the cousins around and they all loved it- even the 11 yr old was playing

The T ball and Golf sets we waited for the weekend so my husband could play with him and they had a blast together- LOVED that the T ball was height adjustable- my son was in his element with all the balls and kept him going for ages
we loved the golf bag as it was just like daddys and provided hours of entertainment

all the setsare so strong and sturdy and you know they wont be a toy that just around for a while before you have to throw them out- all the cousins and friends were so keen and seeing as christmas and birthdays are coming up they will definitly be on my list

Thank you Little Tikes and Kidspots for maing my boy so happy and allowing us the oppurtunity to test these for you- i will definitly be stocking up on more little tikes toys in my house

hey, we tried the Little Tikes bowling set for the last few nights when my partner got home from work down the hall way, its such a cool toy that can be played inside or out! great rainy day game to keep the wee kiddies occupied!) Alexis (2yrs) at first would just swipe at the bowling pins or slide into them (she was the ball) ha ha ha but now she is getting the hang of it. what a great set, its a game that everyone can play (me and my partner ended up being really competitive! ha ha ha) my partner stayed down one end and helped lexi and i set up the pins down the other end and encouraged her, it was really cool. again great sturdy set, love how the clear pins have the colored balls inside them so they make extra noise, im really really impressed with The little tikes sports collection, really good quality products that have withstood a very robust toddler, will totally recommend not only these particular toys but the brand Little Tikes to my friends and family. Wow what a awesome expirence getting to try these toys, my little girl has really loved it, I think my partner has too as he is totally sports mad so it has been great for them to bond over. Thanks again kidspot for choosing us, and plant fun and most of all little tikes! AWESOME thank you.

Games like above have always been a favourite of mine as a child, we have an indoors ten pin bowling set - but it doesn't work outside so well so any form of fun activities and sturdy well made games definitely would be a hit in my eyes and my children's eyes in learning body movements and control of limbs and general outdoorsiness :)
KerryECHoward - 9:52 AM on Wed-10-Oct-2012 reply | message
When i ask Riley what is her favorite toy the clear winner is the Bowling - she gets this out everytime anyone comes over - and its a fun game for everyone to join in with indoors or out. We are excited to be having a bbq this weekend with all the kids over to play and cant wait to get the sets out for them all to play - watch out for more pictures !
KerryECHoward - 9:47 AM on Wed-10-Oct-2012 reply | message
T-Ball , Not being a game we have played before the game took a bit of encouragement and showing what to do from mummy and daddy - was so much fun the 3 of us getting outside as a family and playing together, and great to see Riley listen and learn how to pick up the general idea of the game - and she was very interested in the game and learning. I think this game is so much fun in a social situation and its great that kids can have sets like these all the right size for them , and adjustable. everything is so colourful and appealing to the eye. We have not used the hook to hang up the t-ball set , but its a great idea to be able to stack it away nicely. It is yet again another great solid and sturdy set - but not destructive - so on rainy days its allowed in the house. Easy balls and bats for little hands to grip onto. you really see social skills shine with this , as well as co-ordination skills.

Firstly, Thank You so much, These arrived just before we moved house and so they were perfect for distracting the kids. To make sure I could get a good idea on each toy, they only had one at a time. So one day got the Golf Set, T Ball was the following day and Ten Pin was the next day.

The golf set was great. I love the fact that it's so easy to put away and not lose anything. Had to watch my 18mo frustrate my older two by picking up the ball and running away with it, that for her was that game. Getting it into the hole took quite a bit of practice as they found it a little hard to get it over the lip, but otherwise they enjoyed it. My 5yo who has done mini golf once before loved having his own set at home, and my 3yo loved smacking the ball everywhere.

The T Ball set my 3yo particularly loved. It was great that it was adjustable and so I was able to find a good average between my two older children and off they went. The both really enjoyed themselves and were most upset when it was time to put it away for the day. I can't wait to set the house up enough that I can see how well this hangs from the wall.

The bowling set was the first toy that I got to have a go with the children and I decided to make their own little scoreboard on the concrete using chalk. The kids loved it and it put my sons counting to very good use (even heard him adding extra to his score, too cute). All 3 of my kids enjoyed it as once my older two got around to just playing with the ball my 18mo was running around with the pins.

All in all such awesome toys and ones that I will be recommending to others. They're bright, colourful, durable and amde for little hands. Love, love, LOVE.

heya, went up north this weekend to my sisters and took our golf set...... it was a great hit with my 6 year old nephew and 4 year old neice, it kept them occupied for hours, my daughter (2) to be honest was more interested just bashing the ball about, I think thats why she loved the Tball set soooo much. I think this set will suit her when she is a little older or had more practice? Its a great set to help develop her co-ordination skills. The kids did find it a little hard to get the ball over the edge where the flag pole is as the edge seems quite high? again I love the colours of the set and think its made with good quality plastic, great design to how it all packs together, a total hit with the older children, my sister wants to get her kids a set. Would definitely recommend this cool Little Tikes golf set to others :)
KerryECHoward - 8:31 PM on Sun-7-Oct-2012 reply | message
We got into the golf set this weekend (indoors and out), again the colours and sturdiness of the set are wonderful, Riley just loves the little caddy for the golf sticks and balls - makes it an easy job for mum to get Riley to "Pick up her toys :) ". I think its great to watch Riley get better and more confident hitting the golf ball from the tee to the flag hole, getting further away each try . Developing co-ordination skills and problem solving i would even say - how to get the ball from A to B , how hard to hit it. Definitely a toy that gets everyone involved and having fun and a laugh. Keeps them occupied for ages to. I love how there are 2 different golf sticks - so it replicates a real golf set. These toys encourage social play and get the kids outdoors and entertained for a LONG time. The only but i will mention is that the flag hole is quite high ridged so it can be a little hard to get the ball in sometimes but hey it develops patience and persistence! The toys are also friendly enough to bring indoors on windy, rainy days ! We have been having a lot of fun i would highly recommend the sports collection for this summer!

Hello again! After much fun with the bowling set, and having it set up first thing in the morning (6am possibly too early for ten pin bowling!) we finally unpacked the t-ball and golf sets for Matthew to try his hand at.

I was genuinely surprised at how well he took to the t-ball set, he doesn’t always have the bat around the right way (see photo) but he does understand the concept and enjoys setting it up and then hitting the ball off, fabulous for hand/eye coordination. The height adjustable T is fantastic, and all the parts are light but obviously durable, great for destructo toddler.

The golf set was the last one to come out of the box and once again a fantastic toy for the development of coordination. I am happy enough for him to play with this toy inside on rainy days as long as the cat and dog do not bear the brunt of the golf club. Being a ball fanatic, Matthew loves the golf ball as it is small enough for him to hold in one hand, so there are times when he is running around like a maniac with the club in one hand and the ball in the other, but frankly as long as he is getting enjoyment out of the toy I’m not worried whether he is always using it correctly!

Overall I think we’ll be getting loads of fun from these toys, over the summer months in particular. We have the neighbours kids coming over tomorrow for a play date and these sets will be great as we’ll have a range of ages to please.

I will definitely be on the look-out for more Little Tikes products now that I have seen first-hand the quality of these toys. Awesome work Little Tikes!

WELL!!! We have recieved our BIG box of special toys! Thank you so much Kidspot, the children were very excited. It came at the best time!! SCHOOL HOLIDAYS!!

The best one overall was the T-Ball set, because it entertained them the longest.
The bowling ball set was the easiest for my wee 3yr old
And the Golf Club set was the best for my 5yr because he could hit it quite far and then loved to have my attention to see him do it again and again!!

I LOVE the durability of the solid hard plastic and it will suffer many knocks/bruises and bumps I am sure, but it will last the distance which is awesome!!

P.S......check out the photo of my 2 wee ones enjoying the GOLF set!!
Thanks again:-))

hey there, yay we received our big boxs of treats yesterday, thank you! my little girl (aged 2)<br>was sooooo excited! We decided to trial the Little Tikes T Ball set first, wow what a cool toy! I love the fact that the set is really good quality hard plastic, very sturdy, great for a robust toddler giving it a few good hard knocks! I also love the fact that it is in bright primary colours which my toddler proudly told me each colour as I pulled it out of the box. I also thought it having an adjustable height was great and also being able to pull the set apart and hang it on the wall was a really good idea! My little girl really loved this toy, its a toy that she can play with others or have fun entertaining herself as its really easy to set up as there are only a few simple components. Will definitely recommend this cool toy to my friends with children, its great for either girl or boy. we loved it!!! Will trial the other toys in the next few days thanks so much kidspot, little tikes and planet fun!!! (having trouble uploading photos of lexi having fun, hopefully i can sort it soon) ps....... think lexi's dad loved this set to, was really cool watching them bond and play it together.

Hi there, well we received our big box of goodies and it was such a lovely surprise! Initially I started to unpack everything at once but I think my little fella got a little bit overwhelmed by it all so I've decided to comment separately as we try each set.

SO, I chose the bowling set as his first 'trial' product and he has just LOVED it! He really enjoys setting up the pins and has been lining them all in a row before knocking them all over. At first he was just going up and ramming them while still holding the ball. However, after a few pointers from mum he has gotten the hang of it and is now rolling the ball towards them and is very proud of himself when he knocks them over, big claps all round!

From a parents point of view I'm very impressed at how sturdy the set is, I can't imagine any parts breaking or cracking, which is great for toddler play, and frankly what all toys should be like. My boy loves that the pins have the small balls inside them, not only are they visually interesting for him but they add the extra 'clatter' when the pins fall down. It's great to see him actually focusing on something to aim the ball at, rather than just randomly throwing things around, and the fact that this has held his attention for so long is fantastic! I can see this getting a lot of use over summer outside on the deck.

I can't wait to get out one of the other sets this weekend, that is assuming I can pry him away from the bowling! I'll be sure to post and let you know how it goes, and thank you so much Kidspot and Little Tikes! :-)

Wow, we are so grateful to have been chosen to review these fantastic toys. I have nothing but good things to say about all of them.
I have 3 yr old and 11 month old boys and all 3 toys have been played with practically non-stop by both of them since they arrived a couple of days ago.
The big box arrived and we all opened them together. The boys eyes just lit up as we opened them and we had to start golfing around the lounge in our pyjamas straight away.
T BALL SET - this is amazing and from my perspective this is the most versatile of the 3 and can be enjoyed from any age from a baby that has just learnt to walk to a 9-10 yr old (as long as they don't mind bending down to hit the ball a bit). We had a game in the yard while the baby was sleeping. Until this arrived my 3 yr old had never actually properly made contact with a bat and ball on his own and when he hit it across the yard by himself he looked so pleased with himself. The T is great as you can adjust the height to suit the child and they can just swing at it until they hit it. No more frustrated toddlers! You can get a fair bit of distance on the ball too if you hit it on the right angle. I really like the way the whole set locks together so you can carry it to the park or wherever, or store it, really easily. I would absolutely buy this as a gift for a child. Hours of fun.
GOLF SET - think my 3 yr old had the most fun with this. First off putting around the lounge (after a quick lesson on how to putt and how to avoid hitting brothers and tv's etc), then once the rain cleared putting around the back yard with his little mate from up the road. We even used other bits we found in the garage to make obstacles (mini golf style). We just have to keep the lawns mown for him now. My 11 month old (still crawling) loves the golf balls and had his fair share of fun with the clubs too. If it's raining outside you can set up little greens around the house, down the hall, in the kitchen etc. Master 3 also likes packing the whole set up into the cute golf bag which is just like Daddy's.
BOWLING SET - super cute! Love the clear pins with the coloured balls in them. The colours and the noise really attracted my 11 month old and he loves knocking the pins down over and over again. Teaching master 3 to bowl took a bit of patience on my part, he sort of has it under control now and I'm sure in a few weeks he'll be great. This toy is great inside or out and would suit younger kids more than the other toys.

All 3 toys are as to be expected from Little Tikes - they are very sturdy and hard wearing - a true quality product that I know will last for years and years. We will have so much fun with them over the next months and years. This weekend we are having some kids over and making an obstacle course using all 3. I think all 3 would make great gifts for christmas - especially for those with young boys!

I cannot pry Riley away from the Bowls - she absolutely loves them - standing them up in rows , in triangles, all in a straight line and knocking them all down - we have had them in the hallway , in the garden, in the lounge - fine tuning those motor skills and co-ordination. The colors and sounds of the bowling pins and ball are great to. We talk about the rattles the balls make inside the pins, Riley loves identifying the colors of the balls inside the pins and the big bowling ball. And then there is counting the pins - counting to 6 putting them up , counting how many shes knocked down. The Bowls set has been great on so many learning levels - definitely a toy set i would recommend! The sets are solid and you can tell they will stand the test of kids and time, and the sizes of the toys are great for little hands to get hold of and handle- Cant wait to get out with Rileys cousins and friends with the sports sets.

We awoke to a big box of fun from Little Tikes this morning and have had a blast playing with the three toys. My little man was in heaven and has such good fun - it's been great watching him give all three things a go and even mummy got in on the action. Turns out he's quite the golfer - I may have a young Tiger Woods on my hands!!! The first thing that I noticed that I wanted to comment on was the quality of the toys - they are extremely sturdy and durable and you can tell that they are high quality toys built to last which is half the battle with toys these days. I get sick of spending money on toys that break and end up costing more in the long run.
We transformed the lounge in to a sports parlour - and set about a game of bowling first. He loved setting up the pins and seeing how many he could knock down and I was surprised by his coordination. This would be a great toy for building their hand eye coordination and motor skills, as well as confidence as every time he knocked an extra one down he'd yell out "look mum i'm getting better at it!!" so cute.
We really enjoyed golf too and set up a little course in the lounge and then down the hallway. He was going great guns - ashamed to say that he was better than his mother!! He really enjoyed it so it's great to find something that he's interested in as well so early on.
Basketball was fun too - he decided that I had to go on my knees to make it a fair competition :) Then his big brother got in on the action and they had a blast together. First to 10 goals was the winner and both did really well. Again, I was impressed by the quality of the toys and how sturdy they are. I would happily recommend them to other families, and in fact, encourage them not to waste their hard earned dollars on rubbish toys that don't last. Any one of these three toys would be a fantastic birthday or Christmas present for a toddler - something they can have endless hours of fun with that will stand the test of time. I will definitely purchase this brand in the future, not just for my kids but for gifts for the family as well. Can't thank you enough for introducing me to the products. :)

WOOHOO!! Christmas arrived early for my kids yesterday! Such a lovely surprise when we received a big carton containing the Little Tikes Summer Sports Collection, and my kids eyes popped when they saw it! (and so did mine!). My 4yr old girl said as I opened it "That's for kids".. I said "yes, dear... shame I don't know any kids...", she said "I'M a kid!!" LOL. Unsurprisingly, she was SUPER happy to learn that it was for her, and for her brother and sister. THANKS SO MUCH Kidspot and Planet Fun, we are thrilled that you chose our family to review these toys!! :)

I have a very active 16 month old daughter, who we describe as a "farm girl" she loves being outside, in her gumboots chasing the dog and throwing stones on the driveway. These toys would definatley keep her occupied over summer

Hi, i have a very active 2 and 5 year old.
They love any chance to play outside, but are getting bored with their swing set and trampoline. We are trying to encourage them to play with balls etc that are in the backyard, but after a while-it becomes boring and they are left to sit in the corner.
This set of toys look bright, colourful and alot of fun.
It would give my children something new to do, and possibly develop their ball skills and maybe show some talents towards different sports..
We would love the chance to trial these.
:)

My philosophy around children's play is "play is their work and work is their play" while children play they are learning and when they are learning they are having fun! In our home we have little "Miss Active" of 2years and her brother little "Mister full of Energy" just turned 5yrs. I would be keen to observe and review our children in play with these resources and to see what benefits and enjoyment these resources provide i.e. co ordination of body, balance, movement, how they engage with peers during play, building self achievement/self esteem, durability of toys, safety etc

The little dude in our house would love all three these items as they all contain his second to favorite outdoor item (a ball!!!) He is a good judge of entertainment, and very fond of spending time outside. We try to find the balance in our house between techno toys and outside play, which isn't always easy - but very important.....Would be nice to compare the tball set to something like the classic swingball set......

We would love to test these toys! My nearly 2 year old daughter is a true tom boy at heart and loves to be outdoors. She has so much energy and I am always looking for ways to tire her out while having lots of fun together. She loves running around kicking her football and is always keen to try new things out! Her 8 week old sister is a bit to young to join in but she has plenty of playmates who will come round to help out with the testing and give their opinions too! Be great to have some outside toys for home as definintely harder to get out and about with a newborn and I don't want her missing out!

I think theyd be fantastic and will give me good feedback and will definitely let me know if they LOVE the toys! Theyre at a great age that theyre playing together so will be able to see the toys being used together and separately too! Would love to test the toys!

My two boys would be great Little Tike toy testers. Mainly because they are MONSTERS! (Or so I have been told) My four year old does tend to be mischievous, and yes, his two year old brother does imitate him and follow along. But MONSTERS? Monkeys maybe, and not always. I remember this one time a few months back, where they didn't get up to monkey business for at least five full minutes while they weren't being actively supervised!

My 18month old would love playing with all of these toys, and he sure would put them through the test of whether they are durable or not, not to mention he loves being outside and playing.

My 2 year old would love to trial these. She loves playing outside but I have limited outdoor toys for her, so I sometimes run out of ideas. While she is an only child she has lots of little friends & cousins who would love to play these games with her (& so will I, lol). She is always on the go & these would be great for helping her co-ordination & development.

My very active two and a half year old boy would love to test these toys for you. I have serious spinal injuries and am finding it increasingly difficult to manage my sons energy levels, I have been hunting for toys and activities to help stimulate him with out too much physical movement from me and especially during the frequent work trips my husband has to go on for 3-6 weeks at a time. As we all know two year olds are famous for massive energy levels and this set of toys looks like it would really help with that.

If this Little Tikes Sports set can keep all 3 of our kids happily occupied, focus their abundant energy and help them learn some basic sports skills at the same time - all while having LOTS of fun - then PLEASE send it our way! As our kids are the toy testers you are looking for!

Our boy & girl twins (2 yrs old) are bundles of energy, but they can focus that energy into activities with relentless persistence... and are all smiles when they succeed!
Our eldest girl (4 yrs old) is SUPER enthusiastic when she is playing any type of sport. Her enthusiasm is so delightful, it's contagious! - so much so, that the twins can't help but joining in the fun with her - and us too!!

Miss 3.5 loves to throw the ball for the dogs and both miss 3.5 and miss 2 would live outside if given a chance! they love being out and are full of energy 24/7 (litrially) so having something to keep them entertained and hopefully worn out would be a special treat for them and mummy and daddy!

Miss 3 loves to do what her big sisters are doing. Lately, Misses 9 and 11 have been playing hockey with real hockey sticks and a hard hockey ball. Not great for Miss 3, too much injury potential.
It would be great to have an outdoor game that they can enjoy together. Miss 3 is very vocal and knows her own mind, so would definitely pass on her opinion of the toys.

I have 2 little boys one just turned 4 yesterday and his little brother is 20 months old. Both love the outdoors and would absolutely love some outdoor toys. Our boys would make excellent Little Tykes toy testers as they are both at different stages and also both very opinionated they have never played with the toys above so will be ever so excited. Master 4 also loves teaching his little brother but not before perfecting the task at hand himself and master 20 mths will be very good if he puts as much effort into these toys as he does his gardening or building blocks. I wouldn't mind the distraction either, we are about to raise the vege patch and I am going to have to ruin master 4's broccoli/flower garden he planted this week the broccoli flowers and his cornflower flower in hope they would grow more, he did say he watered them so he said say they will grow!

My two year old son would be the perfect toy tester for these as is obsessed with an older version of the t-ball set we rented from the toy library. We spend hours outside hitting the ball around. In fact I remembered about this trial while I was outside doing this! His 7 year old brother loves it too. As a hockey family we spend hours hitting a ball around so he would also love the golf set. It would be used every day possible and thoroughly loved by my son. He also loves the ten pen bowling sets at playgroup and sometimes even uses the pins as pretend golf clubs/hockey sticks ( have picture after picture of him doing all these things and am happy to upload them if you are interested). Please pick us as we are the perfect family to test all these products.

Hello, My son Tane is 2 years old. I think he would be a fantastic toy tester because he LOVES playing outside and since he is walking and running around better now he is always telling me to take him outside. He have a large backyard and he's always practicing kicking balls around and trying to hit sticks and fallen apples with tennis rackets!
I think any of these three toys will be great fun for him to play with. I also have friends with children the same age and it would be wonderful to have something they can all play and learn to take turns sharing the toys. Would make for great summer fun in the back yard or at the park. Fantastic for getting the kids outside and running off all that energy they've had overflowing from the winter months!

I can imagine him giving these a real tester with his little kiwi friend Matthew who is almost 3 too, they would be busy for hours :-)

Hi. My boys would be the ULTIMATE toy testers for the Little Tikes Summer Sports Collection. Boys are aged 3 years and 13 months, and I care for two other children aged 4 years. I am all for getting outside and enjoying the air, playing with outside toys, and getting involved with various activities especially sports. We live in the country and have lots of outside space ideal for trialing this Summer Sports Collection set. I feel the products would benefit my boys and the other children in my care by encouraging hand eye coordination along with the importance of learning to share and take turns while enjoying sport and outside activity. Please pick us for the ULTIMATE toy testers. Great reviews would come from my boys and the kids, and I am sure they would have a LOAD of fun trialing these toys!!! Please pick us.

I have 3 children, all of whom would love these to play with, and boy oh boy do they need more outside toys.

The T-Ball set - My 4yo and 3yo would LOVE this. They'd both easily be able to take tuns, and the fact that you can adjust the height will make it all the more easy for them to enjoy it. As a mum, I like the fact the I can hang it on the wall, getting it out from underfoot and saving space.

The Bowling Set - My 4yo, 3yo and 18mo would all enjoy this game. Easy to set up and easy to play, LOVE it! Colourful, and easy to roll the ball, this would be fun for all 3 of my kids. My 3yo and 4yo would love knocking down the pins and my 18mo would love playing with the pins or the ball on its own, so this game has multiple avenues of play. As a mum I like the fact that bowling ball is made for little fingers and would be a great preparation to playing in a bowling alley.

The Golf Set - My 4yo and 3yo would like this. My 4yo has been to mini golf once and loved it, so to have his own set at home.... he would get so much use out of this toy. My 3yo would love this as she would feel like a big girl, and it's such a great way to teach such a fun family game. I can picture myself joining in with them as well. As a mum I love the fact that it has its own carry case. What a great way to keep it all in once place, but also be able to take it to family members houses to have a play there (and rope the grandparents in for a game too)

My 4yo, 3yo and 18mo would get a lot of use out of these toys. Not only would they get hours of fun with these, but it's a great prelude to family trips to the bowling alley, baseball games and mini-golf. We would love to try these. :)

My 4 year old son would be good to test these out from an older, stronger preschoolers point of view. He would surely test their robustness and how long they last (which is forever if they are like other Little Tikes products)! He is very active and loves to play anything physical. He would particularly like the golf set -" just like Grandma plays" and the bowling as we took him ten pin bowling the other month and he loved rolling the ball and trying to knock over the pins.

My 2yo son Keet, would be an awesome toy tester to these toys, to start off with he LOVES to play golf with his daddy's golf clubs, and i think that i would be a bit more relaxed with him playing with them inside, there is also that he LOVES to play outside, and a set of "The Little Tikes Summer Sports Collection" would be an awesome start to summer for him and many hours of fun to go with it.

We would be a perfect choice for being a toy tester as we decided already that we really wanted to focus on getting outside with the kids, having fun and enjoy daylight savings (which is coming). My daughter does not have alot of outside games so am looking on building on this and what better way than to be a toy tester say what we think and have some family fun, and with one of the best toy brands around (Little Tikes). Our family has had a really tough year and we are coming out the other side,one of our most important and loved family members has just finished chemo and I am recovering nicely from my emergency c section so it would be great to get some family games/ fun in and just enjoy eachother and what the sports collection can bring for our family and extended family. My little miss 3 would love to have her say and I am sure my nephew can add his thoughts too, although Mr 1 month cant add much now I am sure we can include him and later on he will have his say. Thanks for a great opportunity.

Our 21 month old boy/girl twins would be the perfect toy testers for Planet Fun! They are adventurous, outdoorsy, love a challenge & most of all they love to play games with each other & with mum & dad. I can't think of a more perfect day than one that involves fresh air, developing gross & fine motor skills, and having fun! Little Tikes is a tried & true brand in our house with two toddlers experimenting & creative playing together, so their toys have to be built to last which Little Tikes are. With two sporty parents a few daily games of T-Ball, Bowling & Golf sounds like a ton of fun and awesome quality family time together.

We have a daughter who just turned 5 and a son who is 22 months. They are very active and love moving around. Both children have dwarfism and although they love to do the same things that other kids their age do, their mobility is mildly restricted. For this reason, we would be most interested in trying out your toys for the purpose of enhancing their skills and increasing their confidence in team sports. When we review these toys, we'd bring across a different perspective of how these products can cater for children with unique needs.

We have recently moved house to a country village with a lovely big back garden and between us and our neighbours each side we have 8 children under 5 years!! These are perfect toys to play with friends and i can imagine the lucky toy testers to have hours and hours of fun.

With my home-based carekids and my own 2 children I have a total of 9 children ranging from 16 months to 4 1/2. These kids would all love to trial the Little Tikes Summer Sports Collection. It would be a great way of encouraging them to play outside.

My daughters (3.5yrs and 19months) would be great toy testers for these little tykes sports toys. Both of them have crazy amounts of get up and go and love playing with balls and sports equipment. My eldest even turns balloons into bats and balls and plays balloon tennis in the lounge on rainy days!

My son would love to try the T Ball set! he loves hitting balls around so will be interesting to see how hard he can concentrate on this one !!

I think My little guy Seth (22 months) would be an awesome choice to test these out, he is very curious and loves doing sport type things and he is quite full on so he will test their strength and durability as well ;)

hey,I think it would be awesome if my 2yr old daughter alexis could trial the little tikes sports collection, she loves her ball her nanna got her and she is learning to play catch. it could be something she could play and bond over with her sports mad dad! :)

My kids would love the Little Tikes T Ball Set. Their cousin had something similar and they loved it. We have a big backyard and they love to run around and play whenever the weather allows it. It would be great to have this toy so they can have something new and more exciting to play with. Plus that would mean I can get some more housework done too :)

WOW! What an awesome thing to TEST drive! My son aged 5 LOVES to be outside, he is totally an outdoorsy boy and would benefit from using toys like these, and then his wee sister can join in to!!!
My Boy is age 5, and my wee girl is 3. Please consider us to test these marvelous things!!

My 21 month would love this - always looking for fun things to do at the park to burn off energy. Can't wait for summer and the arrival of her little brother.

My little boy 22 months and his girl-cousin 31 months will love this, both are really starting to explore the world in a better-for-Mums-sanity sharing way and are interacting hilariously talking to each other about what they're doing. Although often the 'mine' word is heard they're both outdoorsy kids who love nothing better than mucking around in the garden. These two would definitely give you opinions on these great toys, believe me!!

What an awesome bunch of lil peoples sport equipment! My sons would be the perfect testers for these :) They are happiest when outside playing games!

I would love the chance for the grandkids to review these.
It's difficult too know what 'garden toys' will be popular without actually buying several, and money restraints preclude that!
I know they would be quality as they are Little Tikes, so hopefully they would get many years of fun out of these!
