This was unwrapped and unboxed in no time by the children, and they were very excited to discover the set, and I was pleased to discover a handy little bag that comes with it to keep it all neat and tidy in – a very nice addition.
We’ve had Plan Toys before, and this croquet set lives up to their high standards as it’s great quality and clearly well-made. All of their products are made from sustainable wood and eco-friendly materials. The mallets and balls are heavy enough to feel sturdy and durable, yet light enough for them to be played with by my young children. It can easily be used indoors or outside, so weather need not stop play!
Boo loves this set. It’s great for her co-ordination and teaching her to be more precise and patient. She enjoys counting every tap that she makes to get the balls through the wickets and takes that part quite seriously!
Little Man adores the balls and what 1 year-old doesn’t love a mallet?!
It is a great quality set. It feels nice to hold, it looks bright, colourful and beautiful and it’s a fun game, indoors or out. But for me, it’s the sound that it makes, as the mallet hits the ball.
Such a relaxing sound!
What do you think of this one? Can you see your children having fun with it?
