Getting Outside with Kickerball – AD
It’s the time of the month again when we are thrilled that as a Character Options ambassador, we are sent something from their Stay Active range to put to the test. We love this campaign so much which promotes movement and encourages families to get active this summer. We’re not the only ones though as the campaign is supported by some great people including Olympic champion Greg Rutherford.
This month we have been sent the KickerBall and both kids were equally excited to get outside and put it through its paces. Especially in light of the Lionesses recent amazing success.
WHAT IS KICKERBALL?
This may look like an ordinary football but Kickerball is so much more. From the makers of Swerve Ball, the KickerBall allows you to swerve, curve and kick like a pro. The way it does this is that it has special panels made from aerodynamic materials that channel air in ways your standard football can’t.
If you’re anything like me, that doesn’t make a huge amount of sense! What it does mean though is that the KickerBall can CURVE!
To curve the ball to the left, just kick the side of the ball from the right. Fancy bending it like Beckham, then strike the centre with your laces. Give it a power kick to send the KickerBall soaring or a gentle bump to pass it to friends.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
This is such a great product and its so easy for the kids to use. The softer texture means that not only is it easier on little feet, but it also means that our garden furniture and people’s windows are more protected! We’ve put it to so much use already and it has been such a great thing to bring with us in the caravan, as you can tell by the dirt that has already appeared after some much loved fun!
It also has so many great physical benefits too. Think improved movement, balance, coordination and reaction time as well as the improved wellbeing that comes from getting outside and moving more.
MORE CHARACTER TOYS FUN
