Fat Brain Favorite: Long Time Product Favorite Melissa and Doug Thrive on the Basics

Mesmerizing play – Plush Monsters and First Bowling!

A staple learning gift for toddlers and preschoolers. Silly Monster Bowling scores high!

Kids grin, giggle, and surprise you with clever uses for the darling, tactile monsters in this bowling set! They hold them, tote them, play with the plush monsters like dolls, load them in trucks, cart them around, line them up, pile them, scare you with them, and throw them, (no one gets hurt!)

Ideal for monster snuggling, monster catch, monster rolling, and of course the intended- a game of kids’ bowling!

These plush, furry creatures are pretty impressive teachers! Children make gains in concentration, hand/eye coordination, gross motor abilities, sensory awareness, motor planning, visual tracking as children’s eyes follow the path of the moving ball.

The colorful monsters reinforce cause and effect, taking turns, and friendly interactions. Children learn colors, they practice counting pins that fall, and they count the bowling pins as they stand them up again. As educational play, Monster Bowling score a strike every time!

Whoosh! The monster ball, soft and lightweight, goes flying, and all his monster friends scatter. Kids cheer and laugh! Everyone enjoys playing this bright and happy bowling game.

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Developmental Delay, Hearing Impairment, Learning Disabilities, Mental Retardation, Sensory Integration Disorder, Speech & Language Delay
    "Our eight year old son has moderate to severe mental retardation and also has some physical handicaps. He loves the cute and colorful monsters. We set up the monsters in the bowling pin formation and he knocks them down using his arms. However, the best part of having the monsters is tucking them in with him at bedtime."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "My son never wanted to play with me or other kids. But since he got the bowling monsters he has started to want me to play with him. He is doing really good with them. "

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "The individual monsters provide additional play through story telling and assigning each a personality -using as puppets. The pins are visually complex and have more tactile stimulation as well. A very well thought out toy for my autistic son, who likes motion/kinetic oriented toys."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "It is cute and whimsical. It is simple enough that frustration will not occur using this item."

    Information about Monster Bowling

    I gave the monsters one by one to by 20 mo old niece and each one was met with delight. She also loved the collection as a whole, and loved carrying them in the cute plastic case.

    Review for Monster Bowling
    Posted 30 days ago by Monika Fisher

    Toy intended for ages 3+ my grandson cannot manipulate the bowling pins They also don't stay up.
    Rating: 3
    Zany colors and multiple textures bowl boredom down every time. No need to rush the bowling part of play, just snuggle, create, imagine and play with the fuzzy monsters. But if it's game over for the monsters visit the Returns & Exchanges Center. Our customer care is in the league to please.

    Super cute and fun toy
    Posted 8/7/2014 by Deanna Wilkie

    We got this for our three-year old godsons. They have a ton of toys so it was hard to find something they didn't have, but this fit the bill. It is fun, colorful has a lot of play options and it isn't something that will be loud or messy. They loved it!
