How to Play
The rules for playing BlongoBall are simple and easy to learn. Officially the BlonGoals should be 25 feet apart, but one reason the game is so popular with so many different groups is that the distance between goals can also be closer. In a therapy setting or at an elementary school for example, the distance may be significantly reduced.
BlongoBalls are thrown by holding one ball in your hand and swinging it slowly back and forth underhanded. When ready, throw the BlongoBall at the opposite goal releasing so the BlongoBall flies with a backward rotation.
Points are scored when the BlongoBall hangs from one of the horizontal bars of the BlonGoal. The game is played until one person or team reaches exactly 21 points.
You may throw a BlongoBall and knock your opponent's BlongoBall off of a horizontal bar. This removes the corresponding points from your opponent's total and is a legitimate defensive strategy.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 5 years of age.

I bought this game to be used for a family reunion. It was the highlight of the weekend as everyone had a chance to play it. I also ordered all of the different colors available so that more people could participate in the fun.
This game is exactly what we were looking for. It is fun to play with all age groups. We live in south Alabama and wanted an outdoor game that was not as strenuous as say volleyball or badminton - trying to beat the heat, but still be outside playing.
We have not had any of the problems mentioned in some reviews putting the ladder together or keeping it together. It is easy to assemble and disassemble in just minutes. We do not leave it outside in this weather. Otherwise, even if it did not melt, it would surely fade and become brittle.
