Description

A great kids game that's also a lot of fun for adults.

Strolling Bowling comes with a 35 cm bowling alley with fold-down pins at the end. The bowling ball is a wind-up plastic "hopper" which, when wound up and released at the base of the alley, pops its little feet and shuffles down the lane to knock down the pins.

Great fun to watch and, with a little skill and luck, a player can get quite good at judging the ball's movement.

Wind it up and knock 'em down!

My parents had this when I was a kid, and we all loved it. Very amusing. I imagine it'd be fun if you were a little drunk.

Not really a game, but it's good for a laugh now and then. I need to sand down one of the feet. Right now, the ball is stuck doing a wicked hook.

This is not a boardgame. It's a toy. A neat old toy, but still.

This is a very simple bowling game where the ball is a wind-up hopping toy. But, with a little bit of skill and practice, you can reasonably bowl a strike! Strolling Bowling is a cool game/toy hybrid from the '80s and certainly great for any nostalgic collector.

I really enjoyed this as a kid. Now I'd still play it, but it's more of a watch and learn the wind-ups tendencies, place and hope game then anything serious.

Great little time waster. My brother and I had a 'league' going when we were young. Just picked up another copy at a garage sale for .25 and this new ball has some serious speed in it.

$3 at estate sale in 2008. Box in fair shape. Contents in good shape.

I liked it as a kid, probably not so much now... I'm actually amazed that this is on here...
