View the Active Kids 2013 catalogue, and check out the Crazy Catch®- a rebound net with a difference. The ‘insane’ side provides an unpredictable rebound, teaching the ability to catch and throw, while improving hand-eye co-ordination. The ‘sane’ side is more predictable making it easier to improve abilities. This year you can choose between 3 Crazy Catch products in exchange for your vouchers…
