This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in February of 2019. From the sounds of the alley to the excitement of making a tough spare, there are plenty of reasons to love the game, and these bowling pins can help keep that joy close at hand. There are options for everyone here, as we've selected desk-sized models, toys for kids, and even regulation sets. We didn't forget about the artists, either, as a few make for excellent crafting materials. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 14, 2019:

We looked at bowling pins for many uses, including regular bowling, toy bowling, crafting, and gifting. One option we did not consider is pins for target practice, as the risk of ricochet is just too great. For regular use, there are the Brunswick Max Colored and Party Direct Full-Sized sets; both are sturdy enough to last whether you're using them for display or for actual play. On the toy side, there are the Champion Sports Multicolor Foam and the iPlay, iLearn Foam. The former is made to higher quality standards and is appropriate for adults and children, whereas the latter is geared toward the young. We considered not adding the Perfect Life Ideas Giant because the pieces are not especially durable, but if you only want them for occasional use and don't mind potentially having to patch them, they may be okay.
