It arrives in a small pack which is great. Instructions are very easy to follow and product was assembled in 5 minutes. My daughter has so much fun with it. There is an option to put sand / water in the base to make it heavier. My 2 year does not have the problem playing with it at the moment. There is also an height extension for future use.

Great Value, good quality, easy to put together and very fast delivery. My 5 year old and 3 year old have hours of fun with this!

Purchased this for my parents to have something for my daughter to play with outside. It took 5 minutes to setup (including grabbing some sand from sandpit to weigh the base down).

The basketball set comes in its own box with four latches that are easy to undo. Within this box are the three poles, two joiners for the poles, ball, pump and valve as well as of course the net/hoop and backboard. Initial impressions were very good and I only had to refer to the instructions once as I wasn’t sure if the net had to be hooked with the pin that actually clips the backboard/hoop to the pole (you can but it isn’t necessary).

As I mentioned, we weighed the base down with some sand but could easily have used gravel, water or even a couple of big stones or similar – whether this is necessary I’m not sure but my daughter has a mean throw so I erred on the side of caution and put two buckets of sand in the container and didn’t fall over all afternoon.

I can see this easily being packed away each time (could weigh base down with a couple of stones or something like that) but only thing stopping me doing that is the hoop is a bit stiff to move each time (just stiff rather than design flaw.

The only slight gripe I have is the ball isn’t the best quality, particularly as it came deflated and even after being inflated for a few hours, still had creased in it. That said, it isn’t designed to be used as a proper basketball so dribbling with it isn’t an issue. My daughter (3) found it easy to throw and fitted in her hand fine. The pump that came with the kit has a plastic needle valve located in the handle (good for travelling) and you just have to remember to moisten the needle before inflating. Very easy to inflate and ball held the air all afternoon.

My daughter (3 years old) is approximately 1mtr tall and we are using two out of the three poles that come with this, so there is definitely longevity to this for some time to come. She even wanted us to buy one for home so she could play it in our garden!

Definitely 5 stars.

Got for my 4 year old son but I think he will out grow it very quickly. The picture of much older children playing is very misleading.

Information on box is mis-leading.Says it goes up to 207 cm, but that is height of board and not ring. Unfortunately didn't realise this until had put it together and will not last my grandson very long, certainly not up to 8years as box said!

This game lasted approx 2 weeks. After filling the base with water as instructed, the hoop seemed quite stable but after a windy day, the verticle pole had bent over causing the base to buckle - and now no matter what you do to stand it up, it just falls over. Poor quality item.
