I am not sure why my children automatically gravitate towards bowling games. Honestly, I wish it were golf–far more money in that when you go pro. But for now, I’m happy to indulge them and French toymaker Vilac makes maybe the cutest bowling set I’ve ever seen.
Made only of solid hardwood and finished with non-toxic paints, each narrow skittle is painted to look like a ye olde time-y French sailor. Which, when you think about it, might be remotely better than teaching your child to hurl balls at animals like most bowling sets. But there’s also a more classic bowling set, entirely inanimate, if that makes you more comfortable.
You can only buy it in the US through Kangarooboo. Cool; we like shopping there anyway. –Liz
