This week where we live (Canada. The prairies.) all of our weather-people far and wide were breathless with anticipation announcing that we were expecting our first big blast of winter.
Which normally would have me shuddering with disgust because winter is the season that is to be tolerated until spring and also, I have little kids and having them inside all winter is crazy.
Think 5 months INDOORS with a hyperactive monkey on speed. TIMES FOUR.
You guys feel me?
Anyhow, the weather-people were wrong, we received zero snow, but when we do? I’m prepared.
That’s because I got my hot little hands in a Little Tikes Light n’ Go 3 in 1 Sports Zone which brings the fun of outdoors play IN.
Incorporating basketball, soccer and bowling – this dandy little set up will have your 1 to 3 year olds jumping, squealing and running off that explosive preschool energy for dayyyyyys.
An can I just? I’m not a fan of kids bowling games because balls and pins and having to reset them – ugh. Too much. But Little Tikes KNOWS this and hung the pins from the top, menacing when they’re knocked over, resetting is as easy as pushing them down again. THEY TOOK HOME BOWLING AND MADE IT EASY. Now if they’d only make a full size adult version.
Moving right along…
The basketball backboard actually lights up and because it’s Little Tikes, it also has 75 fun songs and phrases that make playing with with the Little Tikes Light n’ Go Sports Zone even funner.
Assembly is simple (I did it myself, is there an award?) but just note that it does require 3 AA batteries and you’re going to want to have them on hand.
The Little Tikes Light n Go 3 in 1 Sports Zone retails for $79.99-$99.95 at Amazon.ca, HBC, Chapters Indigo, and Toys R Us. Look for this item included in a huge toy box giveaway on the blog in December!
