Lawn Croquet Set Review

Garden Games sent us one of their croquet sets to review, we spent a pleasant time outside until our game was threatened off by rain (that and youngest starting using the mallet as a weapon) and we retreated indoors again to warm up!

It is a strong set that will go the distance for many a year (even with the added drama of the mallets being used for anything but the intended game!).  We have left it at my parents as they had a more suitable lawn, ours would have been more of an obstacle course avoiding the trampoline and the slide (and the cats!).

The storage bag is useful to keep everything together, including the instructions so you can set up the hoops correctly.  It is a fairly simple game though, so quick to set up and start enjoying.  As my boys get older I think we will benefit from this set even more, when the novelty of swinging mallets dangerously wears off hopefully!

Yes he seems dedicated to the game here... (don't be fooled lol!).

Hubbie and I could have happily carried on playing.  It is a fantastic investment (RRP of £49.99) if you want a quality set and the mallets are manageable definitely not too heavy (even for my Olive Oyl strength arms!).
