There are those tennis-loving kids out there who are going to be expecting more than just a can of tennis balls in their stockings. Yep, we get it: they’re greedy! But look, tennis is pretty dang hard to play when you’re using lumps of coal. We’ve gathered together our best pint-sized gems (no, we’re not talking about our new BFF Justine) for a little kiddie shopping on the third day of TSF‘s 12 days of Giftmas.
We’ve always been big fans of the things that bubble over at Stick it Wear?! in SoCal. (No really. We. Are. Big. Fans.) This year SIW?! is getting young and hip – and we mean young as in they’ve got stuff for the little ones! And that rocks. Our faves: the no-nonsense AnaTank is a good option if you’re dreaming about sunny and warm weather in December (retails for $24.99) and, for the boys, the OurSaviour (can you guess who?!) is offered in the performance line for boys. Cost? $34.99.
And not just tennis: SIW?! now goes for the greens of the golf world too. Because you know those kiddies love g-o-l-f.
Remember when the rules changed for the kids of tennis? Well, now shopping has, too. TennisWarehouse has put together a portal that points shoppers to different landing pages by age and by products themselves. For kids from 5-10 and and products like racquets and shoes and balls and apparel can all be found via the link. What’s the best way to get your kid excited about 10 and Under Tennis?? Buy them some goods and get out there on the court with them! Our pick? A 12-pack of foam tennis balls for $29.95, seen below.
While you can’t get this next item to actually buy – or have one made of you and your kid – it might be so cool that it’s worth framing a picture of. Oh, you know what we’re talking about Kim Clijsters and daughter Jada being immortalized by Mattel earlier this year as Barbie mom/tennis player and daughter. But really, why aren’t these for sale?!
Have a kid that digs a good video game (or a bad one)? We’d recommend Big Fish Games’ Venus: The Case of the Grand Slam Queen. Downl0ad-able for $6.99
