TJ Hughes offered to send us a couple of items to enjoy in the garden this Summer. I chose a Mickey Mouse patio set and swing ball as I thought it would be perfect for Lucas to practice his football.


Garden fun Disney Mickey Mouse patio table set


The patio set is very cute and Lucas loves it. It was incredibly easy to assemble and features 2 chairs with a table and sun umbrella. The table and chairs are nice and sturdy and have a saftey look on them so they can’t accidentally fold down and Lucas can’t do them himself.

The swing ball set doubles up as reflex football. I initially wanted this as I thought Lucas would love it for the football and we wouldn’t have to keep going after the football. I set it up as football but once I did he went looking for the bats and tennis ball so I changed it to that for him. The tennis ball came on the string already and I can see why as it is difficult to thread back through! Once I managed it, Lucas loved trying to hit the ball, he still has a long way to go with his hand eye co-ordination but he is enjoying trying. I have played a few times with my parents and it is a great way to spend some time in the garden. It is meant for 2 players, I was under the impression that you could hit the ball and it would whirl all around the stand but it doesn’t, it is meant for a 2nd player to hit/kick the ball back.

The patio set is currently on offer for £19.99 and swing ball for £9.99 which I think is great value for money and perfect for keeping the children entertained during the Summer holidays x

    The patio set is so cute and Swingball used to be one of my favourites as a child, although I’d probably enjoy it just as much now!

    Oh how fab, I used to love Swingball! Didn’t realise you could get it with a football on as well as tennis balls! 🙂

    Swing ball is a fave and reminds me of my youth playing this with my big brothers. Love to see them and I also bought one for my boys.

    The patio set with the parasol is brilliant! We don’t have a lot of shade in our garden so that would be perfect
