        Bought as a Father's day gift from my kids to their dad for his desk at work. It was perfect! Everyone loved it and had a blast knocking the kids down. Great conversation starter and stress reliever when things get tough.

            I bought this as a Christmas gift exchange gag and people fought over it. Then we set it up on the kitchen island and played dodgeball for hours! We divided up the kids and had a player at each end of the island and proceeded to fire away at the kids. Our family players included high school, college, just out of college, their parents (early 50's) and 82 year old Grammy. I've just bought a second set for a brother-in-law who blew out his Achilles playing dodgeball on a cruise ship (much too competitively) as a joke -- a way to stay in tip top dodgeball shape while he's in a cast for 6 weeks. Buy this item!

                    This is one of those ideas that is almost one of a kind. It is a huge conversation piece and is very relatable. The pieces are fun, colorful and big enough to really play with. If you ever need a break from your day this gives the desk dart board a run for its money.

                      I bought this as a gift with my husband, who I thought would enjoy it with his officemates. He likes it, but he was not as enthusiastic about it as I thought he'd be. I'm really not sure if he's used it at work yet or not. He has it on his desk in the box, so I guess he at least likes the idea.

                        A lot of fun, characters are larger than I thought so it takes up more room on my desk than I planned. Doesn't stop me from using it though..
