E-Z Bat:Pitch it & Hit it or Swing it & Fling it~(Review & Giveaway)!!
Posted Sep 14 2010 12:00am
My little guy, Caleb, is very active and he loves sports. He would like to be in baseball, football, soccer...you name it. With him being 5 years old, it is fun to introduce different sports to him, so he can see what they are like, and he can decide what he likes. I got a great product to review, that will help Caleb work with his abilities with a bat...called the E-Z Bat . The E-Z bat is designed for kids to learn the basics of using a bat with baseball. With the E-Z Bat, kids can either Swing it & Fling it....(see video) Or, you can Pitch it & they can Hit it. Caleb is great with throwing a ball, however, hitting a ball (from a pitch) is a challenge for him yet. With the E-Z Bat, Caleb can work on his swing by placing the foam ball on the foam bat.
The foam balls (2 included) fit nicely over the bat. Kids can place the ball on the bat by themselves. There is a foam, red ball stopper. This is on the bat for proper placement of the ball. The red stopper is adjustable, and kids can try different locations on the bat to launch the E-Z ball at the apex of their swing. Caleb was thrilled that he could swing the bat and send the ball flying on his own. As we work on his swing, and he gets to feeling comfortable with the bat in his hand, we will work on hitting the E-Z ball with a pitch. I really like that this bat and ball set is foam, just because I feel it is a safer alternative to wood or metals from other sets. The E-Z Bat is geared toward ages 3 and up, and our family recommends it. My kids have had fun with it, and it is even an "outside toy" that I don't mind played with inside (with certain rules).
This dad-owned, get-up-and-play, youth sports/toy company focuses on getting children active, engaged, and having old-fashioned fun.
