What It IsHaving to be indoors doesn't mean the sports play has to stop. Just bring kids indoors with Little Kids' new Junk Ball line, Hall Stars. These new indoor sports sets are sized and scaled for indoor play spaces, such as bedrooms, hallways, and playrooms. The equipment to play each sport is soft and safe, while the rules are bent to enable hours of indoor active play. Put a new twist on golf, tennis, volleyball, badminton, baseball and hockey!
The Hall Stars Indoor 2-in-1 Hockey and Baseball Machine allows kids to test their goaltending reflexes or home run power. For hockey, load the machine with five foam balls, then grab the goalie stick with the foam blade. The machine will shoot the foam balls one at a time while the goalie tries to make as many saves as possible. The same principle is applied for baseball-the machine "pitches" the balls one at a time at the batter while he tries to hit as many home runs as possible using the bat (with a foam sweet spot). The set requires four AA batteries, which are not included. It retails for $29.99.
The Hall Stars Indoor Disc Golf combines golf and disc shooters. Set up "golf holes" around the house and load the motorized golf club with the eight foam discs. Shoot the discs off walls, around furniture, and down hallways until they go in a hole. The club has two modes-driver mode for long-distance shots and putter mode to use when close to a target. Challenge yourself by moving the holes up or down, left or right. The golf club requires 2 AA batteries, which are not included. The set retails for $24.99.
You'll get nothing but net with Hall Stars Indoor 3 in 1 Net Sports, which includes tennis, volleyball, and badminton. All games are scaled down in size to allow for "knee sports" play. For example, tennis and badminton are played on your knees by lowering the four-foot adjustable-height net. Raise the net for volleyball. The set comes with two racquets, a foam tennis ball, an inflatable volleyball, and a foam birdie. It retails for $24.99.
Each set is easy to set up and store. They are also perfect for kids who live in apartments or urban areas and do not have backyards.
