Swingball Giveaway

One of my favourite childhood games was Swingball, I remember where I was when I got mine.  I spent hours playing either on my own (the joys of being an only child), with my friends or my parents.


When my kids were younger I remember getting excited when we got them a swingball.  Sharing all the memories of my childhood, of the hours I spent playing with mine.

Having three children I never once thought of the arguments it could also present, with they are cheating, it is my turn.  After refereeing they played nicely and me and my husband would join in as we had teams, and cheer as we won.

It is lovely to see that Swingball is still such a popular game 40 years on from when I first played mine.


It has been updated in design, instead of fixing it in the ground you now have a base which you fill with water

Plus the base also doubles into a storage case to keep everying together when not in use

This means that you can also pack up and take it on days out for picnics, at the beach or on holiday and not just for playing with at home.

    Favourite toy was probably my Tiny Tears doll, still have her but she looks different now (she went through a punk theme during the 80s and now the marker pen marks are permanent )

    Connect 4. I loved it and used to play it with my family all the time. Though we loved Swingball too. This post is a real blast from the past.

    Has to be my Furby! I know a lot of people find them really annoying, but I absolutely loved the Christmas themed one my parents bought me! I took it everywhere!

    As this is one of my most favorite garden games ever… I vote that the Wimbledon final is decided by a 5 set Swingball match.

    I absolutely loved my bike and roller skates for outdoor fun with friends. But indoors my Sylvanian Families were the best, the Maces Family were my first family, they were little mice – I feel extremely old now, I just looked them up and they are classed as ‘Vintage and Retired’

    My roller skates, the ones with four wheels and you put them on top of your own shoes. Loved them! Always scary going down hills but we seemed to just ram into the walls and get on with it

    I can’t remember what it was called but it was a thing that went round your ankle and you swung it round and jumped over it

    We had a ping-pong table in the back room. I used to have lots of fun playing with my sister. But as she was three years my elder, she usually won!

    I think it was called a skip it? or something like that. A purple glittery ball on a cord that you put on your ankle and skipped over!

    My favourite toy from childhood was my skateboard, every kid on the street had one, although non of us could skate. Instead we took them to the top of the hill, sat down and raced to the bottom. Much to my mums annoyance, we used to wear a wedge out of our heals when we stopped at the bottom.
