    So last night a pull up a chair to the front of my NGG. My three year old daughter likes to launch the ball for me. But this time I tell her to work the flippers. I launch the ball and it comes down the left lane and the ramp drops for the hole in one shot. She flutters the flippers and the ball hops to the right flipper. She immediately hits the button again and backhands the ball up the ramp and in for a hole in one. My jaw drops! Luckily my wife was standing there and saw it to. Needless to say I am a proud dad!!! I have never backhanded a hole in one off the right flipper. My wife hasn't even made a hole in one. (She doesn't play it much) image1.jpg image2.jpg

    Haha thanks! She loves playing. She is getting better at flipping. She started off just pushing and holding down the flipper buttons. I wish I could say she meant to do it but it was just one of those times when it just worked. Usually it just drains because she hasn't fully grasped it yet but I was really shocked to see her even hit it up the ramp much less make that shot.

    Great story...just wait until she gets a few years older, and she'll start stomping you. I used to play NHL on playstation with my little cousin. Used to let him win (or beat him by 1, you know, keep it close) he got a few years on him and just crushed me. Young people's hand/eye coordination is insane when they grow up with it like this.

    My nearly 3 year old son loves playing our pins. It's amazing how his skills have changed over the past several months. He didn't really start playing them until about 2 months ago.

    Back then it was both flippers at a time, etc. Now he's single flippin and also seems to time some shots a little.

    He considers my Earthshaker "His" game.

    Now my daughter on the other hand acts like they don't exist. She's too busy with Minecraft apparently.
