Fall Bowling Set
I got these for my daughter's birthday party. I love them and so does she! I let her play with them early to see if she could do it and she really enjoys knocking down the pins! At first I was iffy about them because I though that they probably wouldn't stand up well, but they really do! I love the size of the pins! My whole family thought it was really cute. My only problem with it is that I received a cracked pin and a few dented ones. Since they are hallow the dents popped right back out with a little pressure. I personally love that they are hallow that way if someone gets stressed and swings or chucks a pin no one will get hurt which is amazing since we have a cousin who is four and autistic and when he gets stressed he chuck anything within reach! I called Oriental and they apologized for the cracked one and are sending me a bran new set free of charge! Amazing service! All they asked was that we donate the spare set to other children!

Purchased for 7 year old child, used at 2nd grade fall party--a big hit! Ball can't be held like a regular bowling ball, but small enough to hold in hand and throw.

Good for the money
This was a fun game to play with my Pre-K students. My only issue was that a lot of the paint on the pins were scratched off. They still worked and the kids loved it!

Really fun for School Parties
This set is visually very cute and the kids think it is very fun. The corn all stand up on their own and are easy for the kids to set up the game. Ball is fine - it has the 3 bowling holes in it, but they are too shallow to use.
My set arrived with a broken pin. After sending OTC an email, they sent out a new set immediately. I was very impressed with the customer service.
I don't think that the set is sturdy enough to survive at home play, but it should be fun for the supervised Halloween parties at school.

This game is great. It is made well and it very cute for our fall event requiring a game station.
This game is really cute and was well-represented in the catalog. The scale is big enough and perfect for our Trunk or Treat car.

Good quality fall bowling set
Bought this for a preschool Halloween party. The price was great -- $10, and the quality was much better than I anticipated for a mere ten bucks. The pins and ball ARE lightweight, but quite sturdy and we had absolutely no problems with them. None of the pins or ball became dented, and our preschoolers threw the ball towards the pins more than rolling, and on a tile surface, too. They all had an absolute blast bowling, and kept lining up right after their turn to go again. Good buy. It's stowed away to use again on future Halloween parties.

Would not purchase again
The pins arrived with dents in them already. Customer service was kind enough to send a second set. This worked out well because the pins are made of such cheap plastic that I needed the extras for replacement of cracked and broken pins. These were meant to last for 27 days at a pumpkin patch with a lot of kids passing through. They did not last.

Broke within a day of playing with them
Not good quality. Shattered when you tried to use them.

This was a pretty fun game at our party. Kids really enjoyed it. At the end, one of the pins was cracked, but oh well.
