THE PRIZE

Step2 is giving away their new Pin Pals Bowling Set to one lucky reader!

MY REVIEW

We have had the great pleasure of testing out many Step2 products, and we’re never disappointed!

Pin Pals Bowling Set

STEP2 pin pals bowling set

The Pin Pals Bowling Set is just as great as the other products we’ve tried – it’s durable and versatile enough to give kids hours of enjoyment.

These little bowling pins are shaped so that they can be laid out like regular bowling pins or STACKED for even more fun, and my boys could not imagine a better game than knocking things down!

The set:

  • Includes 10 fun bowling pins and 1 bowling ball
  • Design features small dimples that allow buddies to stack easily
  • For indoor or outdoor use and
  • Made of durable poly construction

The ball is solid and is great for lots of other applications – kicking, batting, throwing, etc. But it does have those little bowling ball finger holes for the times it’s used as an actual bowling ball.

I love a product that gets my kids outside in the fresh air and sunshine, enjoying summer, and out of trouble, and this bowling set is a winner for sure!

Play & Shade Pool

We also got to review the Play & Shade Pool, and this is definitely going to be the favorite toy of the summer – a pool WITH an attached umbrella AND cups/spinning water wheel!

I was a little worried that my 4 year old, who is taking swimming lessons, would be a little disappointed with the size of this pool and not being able to actually swim around in it, but those pouring cups did the trick. He could dump water through the little cups and watch that spinning water wheel all day if I’d let him. The trick is getting him to give Gus a turn…

There are two little molded seats, just right for their two little bums, and plenty of room for splashing and general merriment. Traction on the bottom of the pool keeps the little guys from slipping all around, and the whole thing was VERY easy to set up. I did it all by myself, and I typically have zero patience for reading/following instructions. There were only two or three steps, so I handled it.

The pool holds 12 gallons of water and the attached umbrella is a life saver – it protects their skin AND keeps them cool.

And if water isn’t your thing, fill it with sand. The pouring cups will work just as well!

Thanks again to Step2 for another great summer kids’ product!

Ooops Sorry for the above comment. Step 2 has a bunch of great toys. I love their playhouses, but the buggy’s are super cute too. That is what we would enjoy right now.

We love all of step2 products. Right now we are wanting to get a sandtable. My daughter/daycare kids love playing in the sand, but I hate cleaning it off there clothes before going in the house.

I believe all the products from step2 are great! Being a newer grandma and having ceramic floors I was looking for the mats that I have seen everywhere but step2 had the best price w/ free shipping. They were even thicker than what you see in the stores. Now that we have 3 grandchildren all under the age of 2 I think the CHOO CHOO Train wagon is my favorite!

Step 2 has the absolutely best toys ever! I have just recently ordered the up and down coaster for my son who is turning two in 2 weeks. He LOVES it. He plays on it all day, rides the coaster down, pushes toy cars down, he sits on it while eating his snacks. I am so happy with my purchase and couldn’t be happier with this toy :0
