According to wikipedia, the earliest known forms of bowling date back to Ancient Egypt/Roman Empire. Needless to say, there sure have been a lot of great advances that make bowling an enjoyable past-time for families. One of the great advances has been automatic scoring and automatic “bumpers” that come up depending on the bowler. Please enjoy this video of a 4 1/2 year old really enjoying bowling. His shoe size is 10 and uses a 6 pound ball.
