Productive way for kids to expend energy
from Minneapolis, MN
About Me Homeschooler, Parent
Having two young sons, I am always looking for productive ways to keep them busy (or expend energy)! Bucket Blast is the perfect fit! We can use it either inside or outside, depending on the weather, and it is a great way to burn off steam during the homeschool day. The boys love it! Plus, when friends come to visit, there are plenty of "game pieces" to go around.

Purchased to entertain a gathering of "cousins." The flexibility this product offers for playing multiple games is great.

About Me Value Oriented
Used for church and library programming. Easily adapted for all ages. Kids loved throwing water but it could have been used as a dry game if not suitable weather for water games. Everything you could want is in the box.
In or Out
from East Islip, NY
This toy can be used inside or outside. There are so many games that come in the directions. A great boredom buster. The best thing is you can make up your own games.

Oh, this is fun! I'm 50, and the grandkids are 6, 8 & 2, and we have a blast. We've found it to be great fun to throw a glow stick in the bucket & play after dark (days are just too hot right now!) The only drawback then is finding the "grounders"...but it's still good for lots of laughs!

Great quality - many games in one - fun for our grandchildren!
What a fun game for everyone!
from Kailua, Hi
My son and his friends had a lot of fun playing one of the bucket blast games. His sister and I also joined in the fun. The only problem that we had was when my son fell backward onto the bucket, it broke. When one of his friends fell another bucket cracked a little. Maybe it can be made a little sturdier.

This is such a fun game! It really gets the kids going and active. An A+ in line with the old days when kids went outside to play!

Bucket Blast really is a blast!
By Wonder World
from Sacramento, CA
I was blown away by how amazing Bucket Blast is and how much fun my children and their friends have playing with it. The description says it's 15 games in one, but it is so much more! My kids, ages 5 and 3, and their friends have more fun making up their own games to play. There are so many pieces, that my daughter and her friends, and my son and his friends can each play their own game without fighting over anything. Even my 1 year old son (with my supervision ofcourse) likes to play with the bean bags, filling the buckets with them, and dumping them out over and over again. We homeschool, so this is a wonderful PE tool, but even if we didn't, I would still buy this for my kids. This would make a great gift as well. I like to give families one gift at Christmas, rather than individual gifts, to save money and this is on the top of my list this year. It can be played year round, indoors and out. This is a well made, well thought out product.

Good toy with many uses
This has many uses. For a family birthday party, strapped on kids ages 3-12 and used for a water balloon toss game. The partners with most intact water balloons in the bucket were the winners! Also use it for "bozo buckets" in preschool program. Many other games and uses! Came with a booklet with uses and game suggestions. Straps on buckets adjust well. Buckets are a good size. Matching colored bean bags are useful. Good product. A family member who teaches and has children of her own liked it so much she added it to her child's wish list and we bought it for a birthday gift for her.
great family fun
perfect family fun for a family with 4 children. We've had lots of fun quality time together ... hectic schedule and this is great for our impromptu play bashes....
Great creative fun!
My daughter loves this and uses it in many ways. We've had fun inside and out.
Great party game
from Lenexa, KS
Great fun for kids of all ages. This is a favorite playgroup game with kids from 2-8. It is easy to adapt the games for all age levels.

My three grandkids have a ball playing with this set, both outdoors and in. They make up their own games and use the cones and bean bags for toss and run.
