Rated 5 out of 5Â by jonesy52299 Great Quality
Bought this for my 1 1/2 year old grandson and he loves it. It was easy to put together, we used sand in the base and it seems to be holding up fine to him trying his slam dunk. Great quality for the price and I like the rim guard that helps him make a basket. I'm going to buy one for my Nieces son and another Niece that is pregnant with a boy. Thank you
Rated 5 out of 5Â by martidom AWESOME TOY and worth every penny
This is an awesome value!! I bought this item for my son 5 years ago for his 3rd birthday. He is now 2 weeks away from turning 8 and finally our basketball hoop has seen its better day...and I am getting ready to purchase another one because I am so satisfied with the product!!!! This basketball hooop is so well made, my basketball hoop has sat outside for 5 years and has blown over or been knocked over hundreds of times and it has still held up. It's fun and my two boys play with this nearly every day. It never gets boring and really is a good value. It's great that it can adjust between 4 and 6 feet so it grows with your child. I highly recommend this toy for any little boy between the ages of 3 and 8.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by TerryC Good product, with one MAJOR flaw
I bought this for my toddler son. We originally put the pole with the backboard attached to it in the base (there are two slots), to have the hoop at 3' height. Now he's ready to have it raised, which requires you to remove that pole from the base and slide it into the other pole, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to get the backboard pole out of the base so you can put it in the other, height-adjustable pole. Really. Impossible. If I could ever get it out to put into the height-adjustable pole, I'm sure it would be great, but it shouldn't require a car-load of Teamsters to simply remove the pole from the base. I wish someone from Fisher-Price would let me know what the secret is. As of now, huge irritation about this in our house ...
Rated 2 out of 5Â by MichaelD Did I have a lemon?
From day one, I could never get the upright to fit properly into the base and was always forced to shim it to keep it from tipping. Beyond that, it worked fine, but from a company with a reputation like FP, I expected better. Then,when I went to sell it later on, I tried to download the instruction manual but only received a one-page caution about plastic shavings inside the rim. I ended up having to give it away instead of recouping a little bit of money. I find it hard to believe I was the only one with this problem, but don't see any mention of it anywhere. Who knows?
