Junk Ball by Little Kids Review

Junk Ball Bat & Ball Set

Mason is quickly becoming a baseball fan.  With a Daddy who watches every game, how couldn't he?  Mason already loves to throw balls, especially baseballs.  This year we have introduced him to the baseball bat.  Surprisingly, he has not used it for anything other than to actually try to hit the baseball.

I was really excited when the new Junk Ball Bat & Ball Set came for us to review.  What perfect timing!  We love spending the days outside and now Mason has a ball and bat set he can practice with.  Since I have not played baseball since 8th grade, I called in Daddy to help.  This is definitely right up his alley.  If anyone could throw these pitches, Daddy could do it!  On the other end, I helped Mason hit the ball. 

This set included one Junk Ball and one Sweet Spot Bat.  Both bat and ball are made of plastic and reminded me of the Wiffle Ball and Bat, but much cooler!  Junk Ball made it super easy to throw any kind of pitch you want.  The Junk Ball has a dial and holes running through the middle of the ball that lets you adjust the air flow around the ball so you can throw the pitch you want.  With simple adjustments to the ball itself or how you hold the ball will determine what kind of pitch you will throw.  You can throw a Fastball by throwing overhand and having the holes on the ball covered.  Or you could throw a Sinker by throwing sidearm with the holes open, and scruff marks on the ball down.  We had no problem throwing any of the pitches with the Junk Ball and had a blast trying.

The Sweet Spot Bat was fun to play with too.  This bat gives you extra power when hitting the ball.  This lightweight, 32" Sweet Spot Bat  is specially designed to hit Junk Balls.  The Sweet Spot on the bat did let us hit the ball further than your average bat would.  Our neighbors can attest to that since we hit it over the fence a few times.

The Junk Ball Baseball Set retails for about $ 7.99 and is recommended for ages 5 and up.  To find out more about the Junk Ball and other accessories to complete your baseball game, visit Junk Ball online.  In the meantime, get out there and enjoy the rest of the summer with your own Junk Ball Bat & Ball Set!
