Kids Know That When It’s Time To Get Up & Play, Monkey Business Sports Is A Home Run

Portland, OR (August 23, 2010) – How many of us have called our kid “slugger” at one time or another? For the most part, it’s just an endearing nickname, but with Monkey Business Sports’ brand new, E-Z Bat, it’s a nickname that will be based on the scorekeeper’s stats. Hitting a baseball may look easy, but to those of us who’ve spent hours setting t-balls on rubber stands or lobbing meatballs to our children know, Babe Ruth had some astounding hand-to-eye coordination. Because of how hard it is, far too many kids get frustrated and give up before they’ve enjoyed the satisfaction of hitting one out of the park. But if those wanna-be major leaguers had learned to hit with Monkey Business Sports’ E-Z Bat, it would have been a whole different ballgame.

E-Z Bat, the brainchild of a innovative grandfather who wanted his grandson to be able to have the thrill of a home run with every swing, gets kids as young as 3 years old swinging and loving the all-American pastime. The better the swing, the further the ball sails so the E-Z Bat reinforces proper technique. Dads, uncles and grandpas will have a ball teaching Junior everything they know! The E-Z bat balls can either be flung right off the bat or pitched and hit the traditional way. The E-Z Bat is the first of many new active play toys expected to roll out this fall and pre-holiday season from Monkey Business Sports.

This dad-owned, get-up-and-play, youth sports/toy company focuses on getting children active, engaged, and having old-fashioned fun. The toy maker readily admits that they design and choose products with which grownups have as much fun as the kids! How can they not with their whimsical toys like PocketShot, SlingShot, SkyRocket, HoverBlade, Big Daddy EZ Lasso, Stomp Walkers and Bungee Jumper?
