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!)

These monster friends are ideal for monster snuggling, monster catch, monster rolling, and of course the intended- a game of kids’ bowling!

Plus, they're pretty impressive teachers too! Children make gains in concentration, hand/eye coordination, gross motor abilities, sensory awareness, motor planning, and visual tracking as children’s eyes follow the path of the moving ball.

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.

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 scores a strike every time!

    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."

    My rating of Monster Bowling
    Posted 12/28/2014 by HEATHER L HOWARDHOMBURGER

    My son is only 11 months, so this will be a toy he will play with more & more as he gets older! My only concern is the hair on some of the animals is already coming off.

    Review for Monster Bowling
    Posted 12/16/2014 by LINDSAY

    This is a good toy for children of many ages, but was specifically bought for a 1 year old. The soft pieces are great and her older sister (5 years old) loves to play with the game too!

    Great gift for toddlers!
    Posted 12/9/2014 by Julie

    I bought this for my 18-month old nephew, and once it was unwrapped, he had a great time pulling each monster out of the reusable bag, one by one -- they are all different, and he definitely noticed! After his older cousin demonstrated setting up the monsters and rolling the ball to knock them down, he was laughing and doing it himself, over and over. The soft ball was also tossed to Grandpa (and back again) several times, just to mix things up. When it was time to go, he put the monsters and the ball back in the bag, zipped it closed, and proudly carried it out the door, all by himself! A very happy and sweet start to the holiday season. Thanks, Fat Brain!
