Basic Features of the Step2 Activity Center

The Step2 Sportstastic Activity Center is a self-contained sports-themed play set that gives your child the chance to experience soccer, basketball and baseball whenever they want. Its lightweight design makes it easy for parents to move from spot to spot, and its rounded edges mean that children who are just learning to stand on their own won't get hurt when they fall.

All of the sports equipment is oversized to help your child develop their hand-eye coordination without getting so frustrated they quit.

With this play set, the design will encourage your child to keep swinging away at the oversized baseball and keep shooting at the basketball hoop until they get the results they want. One of the nice features of this play set is that all of the elements have their own spot on the main base where they can be safely stored.

The manufacturer recommends this play set for children 12 months and older. It has no small parts, so it presents no choking hazard. The suggested retail price for the Step2 Sportstastic Activity Center is $44.99, which is a price that may increase based on shipping costs and applicable sales tax. You should check with your favorite online retailer to see if there are any price discounts being offered that would make this play set less expensive.
