I’m always on the lookout for fun summer games I can play with L. We love being outdoors and running round and have no end of garden toys. I am always happy to add to his outdoor toy selection though, anything that keeps him outdoors is great in my book. So we were delighted to be asked to review Sling Stix. Sling Stix is a really simple idea. Two ‘Stix’ each with a super sticky suction cup and release mechanism you use to play throw and catch with.
To be fair it is really good fun just as a simple throwing and catching game, but it gets better than that. You see you can Sling the ball as far as 30ft, which is pretty epic. You can also get a bit tricksy as you improve those skills, with all manner of fun leaps, twists and rolls to catch that bouncy ball.
L is clearly a smidge young for this game but he grasped the concept immediately and loved trying to catch the ball on the stick and chasing after it when he missed.
I have zero hand eye co-ordination so my game play was hardly a step up on his if I’m honest!!
I love this because it’s so easy to pick up and really good fun. It was a blast running round like idiots on our local playing field. It is small, light and easy to carry around, always a plus with games like this and it is completely affordable.
A big thumbs up from us.
Sling Stix is available from Smyths, Argos and Amazon with an RRP of £14.99. Designed for ages 6yrs +
