I just bought this set because I remember as a child playing this, but I was soarly disappointed in the changes that have been made over the years. I guess due to safety reasons they replaced the metal arrow that would actually stick in the ground where it landed with a more rounded , bulbous type arrow that now when hits a bulls eye bounces out instead of sticking in the ground. The bulls eye rings are made of a thin rubbery plastic like fish tank air tubing instead of a hard more durable plastic like in the good old days. It was still a blast to play, especially if your a young one who isn't lucky enough to have experienced the old timey metal types, but as an older
generation the changes were to be a bit of a disappointment.

The supplier was wonderful but this is certainly nothing like the original Jarts game...pretty boring as this new style doesn't stick in the ground to get points...probably would be better to just throw colored rocks in a circle...

Jarts were first sold in the early 1970s. Even then, there was controversey over potential danger and a deal was struck with the FDA (jarts were food or drug?) to mark all products with language similar to "not a toy/adult use only" and not to be sold in toy departments. This was executed with less than 100% success.

Fast forward to 1988 and a 7-year old girl became the 3rd death as a result of a jart accident -- thrown by her 9-year-old brother and friends; no adult supervision. The grief-stricken father decided that three deaths was one death too many and successfully lobbied Congress and the consumer product safety council to ban jarts.

So, there you go. Three deaths over ~15 years, all resulting from the mis-use of a "not for kids" sporting good. There were, of course, many non-fatal injuries, too ... but those data have been debated by both sides. In 1997, another child was struck in the head and was in a coma, prompting the CPSC to reissue the ban notification, encouraging anyone possessing contraband jarts to destroy them.

In any event, such as with seatbelt laws, we have agreed that we need protection from ourselves and allowed laws to govern our actions. Yippee. As with all officially banned or recalled products, sale and trade of jarts is illegal per federal law (no ebay, no garage sale, etc.).

The new product bounces all over the place, which defeats the purpose of jarts (which stuck right were it first landed). Gets really boring, really fast. Stick to the other yard games, such as cornhole, for a better experience. Unfortunatley, jarts is an adult game that is tied to the ability to stick into the ground ... which is too dangerous for Americans and Canadians.

I don't mind the change in the tips from metal to rubber; however, as one of the other reviewers points out, the jarts do bounce quite a bit now. What bother me is the moving vanes (what I would call the fletching on an arrow) on the jart. The original lawn darts that I had in the 70s were one solid piece of plastic with the metal tips. The new jarts have vanes that slide up and down the shaft. The problem with moving parts is that they break. And after one session of play with my friend and his nine year old daughter, guess what? One of the darts now comes apart (the vanes leave the shaft) on nearly every throw. Given that the toy is meant for family play, I think I should expect that they last more than one session with a nine year-old.

Fun:
------------
Alas, these Jarts are but pale ghosts of lawn darts. They were sort of fun to throw, but the drama of the high toss followed by the satisfying thunk! is completely missing. Their range is also shorter, and they bounce after they hit, rendering scoring imprecise. Hence, these Jarts end up being a minor novelty: after maybe ten tosses, it is time to move on to some other lawn game.

Durability:
------------
One of the darts broke within the first few tosses, after a glancing blow against concrete steps.

I have no idea how they can call this game Jarts. I still have the old metal Jarts, and they were fun to play. They would stick in ground where they landed. The new Jarts, hit the ground and bounce another 2 feet. They are impossible to land in the circle. A compete waste of money. Please take this game off the market, it is a complete rip-off of the original game. This is not "JARTS".

We have enjoyed these jarts. They are what I expected. I like the old ones better, but these are fun anyway.

I grew up with the original "dangerous" jarts and am not going to spend $[...] to buy them online from a collector, but I missed the game and have children and am always looking for different outside games to play and this one was a WINNER. As I said I miss the originals, but these are a good substitute. There is a decent weight to the tips of them and they fly pretty well. The only difference is that they don't stick in the ground like the originals (like a dart)so they bounce instead and usually bounce out of the circle when you hit it, so you have to aim before it and bounce it in, but it's ok!
