(SFOF) BeginAgain Toys: Kickin' Putt Review and Giveaway!

Summer time is almost here, which means school will be out soon! What will your kids be doing this summer? I know my kids love to play outside during the day, when its sunny and I found the perfect game to keep them entertained for hours, while promoting active play, its called Kickin' Putt by BeginAgain!

BeginAgain is an imaginative toy company and was founded on the principles, ideas, and inventions of Benjamin Barlowe, an early 20th century inventor from Fort Collins. And two toy makers David B and Chris C focused on thoughtful product designs and imaginative storytelling for today's kids. It's their goal to inspire children with stories of invention, adventure, and good old-fashioned fun. BeginAgain toys teach through play and nurture the development of the whole child.

The BeginAgain workshop is proud to introduce the first collection of ideas inspired by the world of Benjamin Barlowe.  Mr. Barlowe wrote about 5 distinct styles of play that children engage in daily. His journal entries detail the whirlwind way children bounce from one play pattern to the next.

"A WISH" - For Well Balanced Play:

A - is for the artist. Creative artistic play develops imagination and gives a sense of the world we live in. This is where you can find creative arts, music toys, and more.
W - is for the writer. Children are natural storytellers and these toys help develop communication and confidence. Here you can find role play and character play sets.
I - is for the inventor. The Inventor loves to learn, explore, and build. Find learning games, exploration kits, construction, and science fun here.
S - is for the sportster. Exercise for the body is important of all kids. Here you can find outdoor toys, sporting games, ride-ons, and more.
H - is for the hero. Kids love to save the day. This category is all about heroes, adventures, action figures, and wheels fun. (*Taken from the BeginAgain website*)

I was super excited to team up with BeginAgain Toys and review their Kickin' Putt Game and I knew my girls would have a super fun time playing with it. As soon as it arrived, I was right! They went right outside and started playing this fun back yard game! (It was about to rain in the pictures..but it didn't stop my girls!!)

The Kickin' Putt is from the S (Sportster) of the WISH Collection, it features two, 7 inch kicking golf balls, and a 9 inch disc, perfect for ages 3+. Its like Soccer meets golf, in this fun filled action game! The object of the game is to hit the target, by taking turns kicking your ball to the target.

How To Play:
1. Toss the disc to set the scoring target
2. Players take turns kicking their golf ball at the target.
3. Players finish the hole when they hit the target
4. Toss Disc and Repeat, Lowest Score Wins.

Kyra Screaming, Right here Shay, Right here!!

My girls are still kind of little to explain the concept of the game, but as they grow older I'm sure they will love it, as for now, they are having fun just kicking the ball to the target disc. I really love this game, it keeps my girls entertained for hours and without knowing it, they are actually exercising, while promoting active out door play. Anything that gets my girls off the T.V. and moving around is a huge plus!

"Kids already have the best job in the world, to play. It's full time work and the way they play shapes the way they grow. The toy box is the child's first tool box. Toys are meant to inspire kids to draw, build, explore, tell stories, play games, and ultimately save the day." - Benjamin Barlowe, Inventor and Science Digest, 1959. *Taken from the BeginAgain website*
