The pins are made from sturdy hardwood. They are approximately 6 inches diameter and 12 inches high and almost always include a Kingpin that is around 14 - 15 inches high.
See the Skittle pin timber page for more information on the timber used in the making of these large pins. Wood is a natural material and over time the skittles will become increasingly worn. For more information on returns and defects, read our Timber Quality Statement.
