Jacks & Ball Sets
great game prize
This was another great game prize for our school carnival. This was one of the first to go when the students redeemed their tickets.

smaller than expected
After reading some of the reviews regarding the size of the jacks in the kits, I was reluctant to purchase the set, but since other reviewers mentioned they were the average size I went ahead and ordered them. Well once I saw the size of the jacks I have to agree with those who felt the jacks were too small. These are definitely not the size I had when I was growing up, these look tiny in comparison to the size I used to play with. I'm not sure if this is the "new" standard size, but they are small and I even had an incomplete set lying around in a box that I compared them to and they are without a doubt smaller than my old jacks. Technically they will do the job and will probably work better in little hands, but I don't know if I would buy them again.

I purchased these for Operation Christmas Child. They are a little smaller than I thought they would be.

Not the greatest, but good enough
Bought these for our middle school store. They're not as heavy as the ones that were my mom's, but they're okay. The ball is better than the rubber one my mom had to use, so it kind of evens things out. Good enough to play with.

Like the Old Jacks
I think a lot of those who reviewed these jacks forgot how small they were. These jacks are the size as I remembered them growing up. I have purchased 100's of these for my OCC shoeboxes in the past. I've had very few issues with the quality. I will continue to order them.

Not actual size
I purchased these for a service at church. When I got them in I was disappointed they were not regular sized jacks. They were mini jacks. They should have stated that on the description.

Retro Jacks and Ball set
I remember this fun game for little girls back fifty (50) years ago, back in my day. It's still fun, great for learning hand and eye coordination and just having fun by yourself or with friends.

Not SO Bad!
Yes, they were a little small and the jacks were a bit dull, but for the price, they are a great addition to my goodie bags!
