Is there anything more Canadian feeling than watching your kids play hockey? This may come as a bit of a surprise, but my daughters actually enjoy watching hockey (the Olympics were a big hit and they had a lot of fun watching their uncle play in a rec game a few weeks ago). For May’s installment of the #MGAToybox, MGA Entertainment sent me a Little Tikes Clearly Sports Hockey set. As soon as Rowan saw it, she told me with great excitement “now I can play hockey with Grandpa” and demanded that I open it immediately.
Her hand positioning could use a little work, but she’s got a killer follow through! I appreciate that the Little Tikes Clearly Sports Hockey set comes with two sticks AND two pucks. This means that two children can play a game together, or they can use their own stick and puck at the same time. The pucks store inside of each stick so I never have to worry about losing them! Two more key features of the pucks: the balls inside of the pucks make noise so “every shot sounds like a goal shot” and they have moulded in gliders to help them achieve maximum distance when hit because lets face it, many of our kids think they’re connecting much better than what’s happening in reality.
