Monkey Around with Monkey Business Sports: Review and Giveaway

With the push to keep kids healthy, most Moms I know are trying to encourage their kids to get out from in front of the TV and head out to play.  Back in the “olden days” when I was little, we would head out the door after breakfast and not come back in until dinnertime.  Sadly, those days are a memory for some kids as they are spending more and more time indoors playing video games or watching TV.  I have found that the more alternatives I give my kids for outdoor play, the better.  I was recently asked to review the E-Z Bat from Monkey Business Sports and jumped at the chance.

Who is Monkey Business Sports?  From the website:  “At Monkey Business Sports™, we build every toy with the simple goal of providing real fun for real kids. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of innovation to bring you toys that stand up in quality, stand out in style and push the limits of high performance action!

Because my son has been playing Recreational baseball for a few years now, I elected my favorite three year old guinea pig, Rhett, to check out the E-Z Bat. Rhett’s two older brothers play baseball and it’s only a matter of time before he is ready for the real thing.  The E-Z Bat is perfect for little guys just learning how to use their coordination to swing the bat.  The bat is made with specially created E-Z Balls that fit over the bat.  When the child swings, the balls fly off, creating a “Home Run” effect every time!  Kellee  (Rhett’s mom) reported that he was able to handle the E-Z Bat well and realized quickly the harder he swung, the further the E-Z Balls would fly!  This automatically reinforces proper technique.  Kellee also liked how the foam construction of the bat and balls means he won’t injure himself while fine-tuning his batting average.  When Rhett gets a little more coordinated, the E-Z Balls can also be pitched and hit.

Future Babe Ruth?

Monkey Business Sports has some unique gift ideas for those of you looking to do some early Holiday shopping.  After checking out the website, my son has added the Bungee Jumper to his list.  Weather too nasty to get outdoors?  Check out the variety of Table Top Sports that Monkey Business has!
