- Great For
These Football Skittles are a great rendition of regular floor skittles.
Made entirely from wood (no plastic) and painted with non-toxic paint (though we don't recommend eating them) Football Skittles are made to last. They are the sort of toys your grand-children's grand-children might find tucked away in a box somewhere after several generations of fun, pull them out, dust them off and get playing.
Football Skittles is a great game for young kids to learn various aspects of physics: friction on different floor surfaces, curves and bumps and how they affect the roll of the ball, speed vs accuracy. In addition, learning rule based games: "It's more fun if you come back here rather than throw the ball with great force at the skittles from 15 cm away; and definitely not at your sister's head"
For older kids, say 5-105 years old, it is laughing out loud fun.
