- E-Z Bat from Monkey Business Sports
- We recommend this product for ages 3 and up
What It Is
E-Z Bat is a foam bat that comes with three foam rings that are used instead of balls. It's designed to help kids learn to, as the company says, "hit it out of the park every time". Slide the red ring up the bat a certain distance. Then slide one of the yellow rings on top of it. Swing the bat to release the yellow ring and "hit" at the top of your swing. You can also play with the bat and the yellow rings separately, hitting the rings as if they were traditional balls.
Is It Fun?
This could be fun, but there's a bit of a learning curve involved. This bat simulates baseball, but it's a slightly different challenge because you're not swinging at a ball. You're trying to adjust the way you position the ring on the bat. That's a different challenge and it can be frustrating for kids. Also, if there is any wind, the wind takes the rings and they don't really fly in a straight line. It's also not so easy to hit the yellow rings because of the hole. The best we can say about E-Z Bat is to make up your own games and have a little fun with it.
Who It’s For
E-Z Bat is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The E-Z Bat is 21.5 inches long.
This is really a toy for kids to simulate swinging at a baseball. By the time a child is old enough to play tee ball, this toy won't be much fun.
