Wham-O Review

When I hear the company name Wham-O it takes me back to my childhood and spending quality time playing outside. My favorite thing growing up was my Slip'N Slide and finding new ways for my cousins and I to play with it. Now it seems like you have to literally pull teeth to get kids outside to play. Not only that you can't just let them outside to play by themselves without having to worry. Things have changed so much over the years it scary sometimes. I am lucky to have wonderful neighbors that my kids can just run through the yards and play and we all watch over the kids so if someone needs to do something inside the kids can still play outside. Its a nice peace of mind to have.


I am lucky in so many ways; yes I have wonderful neighbors who help watch the kids when their out playing. But we also have a 15 acre park in our backyard for us to utilize. So we can go over and fly kites and play games with our children. My kids love to be outside and at times its like pulling teeth to get them away from the computer or TV. I am always looking for great products that will make my boys wanna be outside and playing and Wham-O has allowed me to review one.



I received Wham-O's Frisbee Disc game to review with my boys. At first I thought that it was going to be hard to play, but it wasn't at all. Bubba and Pumpkin figured out how to play it very quickly and were having a blast playing. Wasn't to long that we had the neighbor kids over wanting to play as well and we spent the evening out in the front yard playing Frisbee Disc. The game states that it is for Ages 5+ but Pumpkin is 4 and was able to play and understand everything easily. 

 

The Frisbee toss rackets were super easy to put together just line up the two pieces and snap them together and your ready to play. The game comes with two rackets and three Frisbee disc to play with. This would make a great gift for family or friends. I know that this is one game that will be going with us on family vacations to the beach because it is super fun and easy for the kids and can be packed away easily without taking up a lot of space.

Monkey Girl is still a little to young to enjoy this game, but she has used other Wham-O products, including the slip and slide and has a blast.
