Ooh it’s really being to feel like spring has sprung here today (although it’s also been blowing a gale, so perhaps a little premature!) and today’s review of the UKick seems perfect for getting us out doors again! Mums’ Days Reviewers, Jayne, has been trying it out for size.Here’s what she made of it…UKick review - Mums' Days Reviewers - an honest review from a real mum

UKick Review

Quality: ★★★☆☆

Price: ★★★★☆

Overall: ★★★☆☆

We received a UKick by Wicked a little while ago and my son, Jake, is always inquisitive whenever a package arrives, always wanting to know if it’s for him! (He is nearly 4….going on 14!!) He couldn’t wait and before I knew it UKick was out of the box and being inspected.

From looking at the box it looks impressive, but fragile. It consists of 4 large feathers (which don’t look like they would have a long life) , a base and 5 weight disks, which would be easily lost.

The idea behind it is that you have to keep it in the air by any means (although a lot of it was guess work as it didn’t include instructions!)

I’m unsure of the age this toy is aimed at as the package just says unsuitable for under 3’s. It was a little old for my son but we gave it a go.

I explained the basics and gave it to my son  to have a go… this resulted with him throwing it in the air and it landing straight on the floor, numerous times!

He didn’t quite have the Co ordination to try and hit it again go keep it in the air.

Saying that I had a go my self and only managed it a couple of times as did my husband. (I presume you need some practice or skills to master this toy, either that or be a professional footballer!)

The box advertises the website and that there are ‘tricks’ to master, but we were just trying to master keeping it in the air!!

We did have a little fun sending it around family members to see if they ‘had the skill’… non did!

Overall I feel this is a toy for a very specific child, not just a general bordem buster. I would say unless you are buying for someone who loves sport/football then don’t waste your £7.99!
