Outdoor Adventures Review - International Playthings

Whether your kids are into soccer or just into being active, the Soccer Trainer is a great way to practice kicks. An eight inch soccer ball is attached to a base by a cord and children can kick the ball around to improve their soccer skills or to get active. A pump is included to inflate the ball and the base can be filled with sand or water. A built-in handle makes it easy to carry around.

My kids do not play soccer but found this Soccer Trainer to be a great boredom buster. They take it into the yard in front of the camper and kick it around to see how well they can do with their kicking skills.

The ball was easy and quick to inflate with the included pump. The pump even has a small plastic carrying pouch to store it in. The Soccer Trainer we have is filled with water, and that holds the base down quite well. A few adults have even kicked the ball around. Their kicks are stronger than the kids' and the base still stays in place. Once in a while we have to untangle the attached cord because it gets kinked up.
