My twins had their 9th birthday in the summer and I wanted to make it extra special for them this year. I think it is so important for children to lead a healthy lifestyle and so I was delighted when a Swingball Pro Reflex Trainer was sent out to review. I had a read of the www.mookie.co.uk website and was amazed to read that Swingball has now been around for over 40 years. Several decade ago when I was a child I did have a Swingball which my family enjoyed using for many years. One of the things I like best about Swingball is that you don’t need a big space in which to play it. You can play with it in the garden without the worry of stray balls smashing windows or going further astray into neighbouring gardens.
The product arrived quickly in perfect condition with minimal packaging. I thought that the packaging made the product look really exciting. The simple design worked really well.
This product was quick to set up in a family member’s back garden. The base was quick and easy to fill with water which helped it stay put. I loved the vibrant yellow and black design of the Power Padel Bat. The bat itself is mostly yellow with an added black pattern. I absolutely love the look of the bat and it is so practical to use too and easy to hold.
We… and I mean the adults as well as the children… have had hours of fun with this product. I think that it will help my sons develop their ball hitting skills as well as helping them lead a healthy lifestyle. I think that having one bat is great from the point of view that this encourages children to patiently wait for their turn. I like the fact that the reflex cord can easily be adjusted. I think that the grip tape handle and wrist cord are two well thought out safety features. The cord is a generous 6 metres in length and a real tennis ball is used for this product.
This product is clearly made from quality parts and I can see it lasting for many years. I love how compact it is. It wouldn’t take up much space in a garden storage box, shed or utility room.
I would recommend this Swingball Pro Reflex Trainer as well as other Swingball products to others having experienced various Swingball products over the years. I think that this product would make an excellent Birthday, ‘Just because’ or Christmas gift idea for adults and children alike. I think that the RRP represents great value for money.
