Physical activity is very important for growing kids. But with the toys that many kids prefer to play today, this may be quite a challenge. The most popular toys are those that promote less physical activity in most kids. It is the job of us parents to continue to encourage our kids to become physically active by providing fun ways for active play. Toys sets like the Paddle Tether Ball will help encourage just that.
The Paddle Tether Ball is a more modern take on a classic game. The game tether ball is not an entirely new type of play. Many kids in the past had fun playing it. Now with the Paddle Tether Ball, kids will have different ways to play with this play set. Kids can try playing the classic tether ball by attaching the tether on top to swing freely as kids try to hit the foam ball attached on the other end using their sturdy paddles.
In another game, the tether can also be attached to the corkscrew mounted hook on the pole. The tether then moves up or down, depending on where the ball is spinning. The player who is able to reach the end of the corkscrew track in his or her direction wins the game.
The Paddle Tether Ball allows kids to develop their gross motor skills as well as their coordination. It also requires a bit of quick thinking as well as ideal for cooperative play. The Paddle Tether Ball is a great toy set for kids from 3 years old and above. It is available at Fat Brain Toys for $40.
