Fans of the National Hockey League rejoiced this weekend as the NHL and players union agreed to a deal to get back on the ice, ending a half-season long lockout. We’re happy to finally see the players play again!
With cold and snow in many parts of the country, and along with the NHL news, it’s a great time to play a fun game of hockey!
Here at Growing Tree Toys, one of our favorite ways to shoot for a goal is with the Mini Hockey Goal, Stick & Ball Set from Franklin Toys. Adorned in NHL logos, this set is made by the same company a lot of the pros use! You can read a real review by blogger Susan Heim who enjoyed this set along with her hockey-loving husband and sons!
There’s also a fun way to play a hockey-inspired game with a friend – Air Hockey! The Tabletop Air Hockey Game is a house-friendly version of the arcade staple, this set includes 3 pucks, 2 paddles, and manual scorekeeper.
