Bright Starts: 5-in-1 Sports Zone

I have never had a child that was super into one specific thing till Emmitt. This boy will do anything he can to play with a ball. Any type of ball! Football, bouncy ball even marbles! So when I saw that Bright Starts was adding a 5-in-1 Sports Zone ‘balltastic’ toy to their havin’ a ball line I knew we had to have it for Emmitt!

Assembly was a breeze. There were a lot of pieces so I was a bit overwhelmed when I first opened the box- but it only took me about 5 minutes to set it up. I did not need any tools for set up but I needed a screwdriver to open the backboard and install batteries.

The Bright Starts: 5-in-1 Sports Zone allows your little to play five different sports- all with one toy! Basketball, soccer, golf, base ball and hockey can all be played using the nets, hoops and balls included!

There is plenty of room for more than one child to play at a time. And it is the perfect height for kids 1-3!

The digital score board counts each time a ball goes through the hoop, or touches the net so older kids can keep score and younger kids can learn to count! There is enough balls for two or three kids to play together so we hardly ever have fights over this balltastic toy! I do wish it came with a hockey puck though- to make playing hockey more realistic.

Buy It: You can purchase the Bright Starts: 5-in-1 Sports Zone starting in October!

Win It: Check back in October for a giveaway of this awesome toy!
