I got this for my son since he's into basketball. It was easy to assemble. It's not the best when it comes to being sturdy. The headboard is cheap plastic. Does not seem to handle a real basketball well. It's good for younger kids.
My kids use the hoop maybe twice a week for not more than 20 shots. The basketball net disintegrated within 2 months. The net near the rim hooks basically tear off with being exposed to the elements, and retying them is not possible as the net just keeps breaking being so fragile. Also, within a couple of weeks of being installed, the net color started fading. Time to get another net..
(April 2nd, 2020). I really had high hopes for this, but this morning I was very disappointed as I was playing with my 4 year old and saw parts of the ring already coming out (see pictures). Not only that but they were sharp and my son almost cut himself...incredible because it hasn’t been even 3 days since I assembled it. Am I the only one with this problem ? I’m gonna replace it but if the next one does the same thing I will completely return and update this review
I got this for my boys 5 and 14 for Easter. Almost immediately it because apparent that this was not a sturdy set up, everytime they throw the ball the backboard bends further and further down and they have to keep pushing it back into position, today it finally broke from the back and forth motion so much. it last a good 3 months. next time ill pay a bit more and get a more sturdy one hopefully. PSA my kids have played with this non stop since they got it, they cant take the trash out without shooting some hoops. so i guess we got our monies worth.
Bought this for my 9 year old. The stand itself is sturdy the backboard is not regulation size and is starting to bend slightly duty to repeated use and the force of the ball The price is great but would last longer and be better suited for a younger child.
I should have known for the price it is very cheap. Its not bad for a really young child with a rubber ball but not a real basketball. I bought this for my 8 year old for Christmas and I will probably get him a real goal for his birthday. The backboard is very small and plastic, it is probably going to break when the basketball hits it. But if your child is 4-5 years old probably a good one for them. It is very easy to put together though it look less than 5 minutes.
I bought this product for my kids, assembled it and placed it outside. Assembly was easy and the whole thing looks good, but 3 weeks later, the net started falling like a dust. It did not withstand the summer heat at all. I live in Silver Spring, MD. I don't know if it has anything to do the weather here
Well the directions are not really directions. The axle was not in the box. The net is loose. I'm waiting for a tracking number for the axle. If its not recieved by Sunday, I'm sending the entire thing back and requesting a refund.
