We got this as a gift and have subsequently given it as well. When they're little, they'll hold them or play with them like dolls, and when they're older they'll actually bowl. Each pin has a number and a different animal and is a different color, so there are lots of opportunities for learning. We like it because it's unique - how many books and trucks can you have? Great for a rainy day.

I thought this would be a great gift for a 3 year old. It was well constructed and the monsters were very cute. In fact, they even stood up well and were easy to handle. However, the "bowling ball" was not easy to use. It did not roll in a direct fashion due to assorted shapes on the ball. So, when the kids tried to use it, it did not reach its goal. If you are able to use another ball, it would be very functional. I have found that the 3 year does not play with it.

Bought this as a gift. The good part is the kids love playing with it! The bad part is the dogs love playing with it too!
It has stood up well to both the kids and the dogs!

A friend bought this for my (at the time) 1 year old. I have no idea what small parts make this 3+ but we've used it with him for over a year now and never found it. These are well constructed, bright and adorable. He LOVES it still. We've used it to teach counting and colors, and just to throw a ball around.

This Monster Bowling set is adorable!! It is just the right size for the age range that it is intended for. Colors are vibrant and my 2 year old niece not only has fun bowling with them, but plays with each "monster" individually. She loves it.

My kids have had this for over 6 months and have still never played with it. The pins are quite short. the ball is small and not very heavy (does not knock the pins down easily). the monsters are cute/funny, but it's not a very entertaining toy.

I actually bought this bowling set for our kitten and 5 year old cat. I know that this was not the toys intended use (since cats can't bowl), but it turns out they both love them. They are the perfect size for the cats (3 lbs and 16 lbs) to wrestle with. They will even lick the furry heads.

As for the monsters themselves, they are durable, soft, well-constructed, and overall absolutely adorable. The stand up on their own (due to a weighted bottom) and haven't shown any wear and tear after being attacked by cats with claws. We are very happy with this product.

My son absolutely loves this game; he went beserk the first time he saw it and has played it every single day since he got it for Christmas. The 'monsters' are adorable, and we play all sorts of other games with them besides bowling. They have been loaded up in dump trucks and dumped out. He even loves just lining them up in a row. The ball is just the right size and weight, yet soft so an errant throw won't break something. A great toy.

This toy is very cute, those little soft monster pint stand alone just fine (i think the craftsmanship are pretty well made). Though i wish these pints were a little bigger, when i make the purchase i really thought those pint will measure up to 8.75 inch, however, after i measure them myself, their size only come up to 6.5 inch maximum =-1 star. Even though they are a bit small, but they are still fun to play with, my 3 yr old nephew loves to play with these monster. He even went out shopping with 1 or 2 pints in his backpack, i think my money are well spend on this toy, and i highly recommend them to all young kid's parents.
I agree that the ball that comes with the set don't work really well like one of the reviewer had mentioned (we end up picking up a ball just a little bigger from walmart for less then $2, and it works just fine).

Very funny characters! Great toy for very small children (2-3 yr. olds). Older children would want a more challenging set.
