This simple toy is a version of the classic game of Bilboquet. Just get the ball through the hole.
It looks simple enough: pick up the paddle, gently swing the ball in an arc and have it fall through the hole in the other end of the paddle.
However, it is a great test of hand-eye coordination. It takes much more subtlety than is anticipated. After you practice for a while you can definitely get it in the hole much more often.
Once you find this game easy, you will want to try our Ring Toss Game. It's just a little more challenging.
It makes a great party favour, desk toy or stocking stuffer.
