Little Tikes EasyScore Basketball Set Description

This product is scary good. What do I mean by that? Let me explain.
With a 4 year old girl and an 18 month old little boy we thought this might be a fun product to try. I opened the box, set it up in a couple minutes and watched the kids start playing, and playing, and playing, and playing.
My wife and I were stunned. Both children spent hours shooting baskets. Even my little one was shooting and consistently making bank shots from 2 feet out with the hoop height set just above his head. Fortunately we had a couple other similarly sized balls around the house which prevented arguments over whose turn it was.
Both kids were so caught up in the fun and were doing so well that it wasn’t long before the video camera and regular camera were clicking away. My little boy went to sleep that night with his arm curled around the basketball (similar to how he might hold a teddy) because he screamed when we tried to take it away. The first words out of his mouth the next morning was “shoot, shoot” as he stood up in his crib holding the ball. My wife commented that I’ve created a couple basketball monsters.
We’ve never had that type of reaction to a new toy and in some ways it was a bit daunting. I’m not sure if our children’s reactions are typical, but at least in this house, this product is a huge hit.

My son received this from his great grandmother for his second birthday 2 weeks ago. It has been played with daily and he loves to throw the perfectly light weight ball (and a scaled down version of a proper, heavier basket ball) through the hoop over and over… we’ve had to raise it up three times already to make it more challenging for him.
We have not yet weighted the set and it stands up fine at the moment. I imagine the base will need sand adding when my son gets into more rough play with it tho.
I have to say I initially agreed with other reviewers who have been frustrated with the hoop constantly coming off after a few throws… BUT…

We purchased this toy for our 22 month old grandson… My daughter in law claims its the first words out of his mouth every morning when he wakes up “b-ball”. Also, that she can not get him into the tub at night until he experiences a little “twi-light b-ball”
Its great for increasing your child’s gross motor skills along with their hand to eye coordination. Its build sturdy and durable to last. We have 8 children, 6 grandchildren and prefer to give them gifts of quality. A toy that will last to be handed down to new siblings in the years to follow. Also a toy that gets the child happily moving.

We got this for our son’s 3rd birthday and it’s been a big hit! All 3 of our kids (ages 4 1/2, 3 & 1 1/2) are able to use it since it adjusts in height. I think this will be used for many years to come! It is not extremely stable and sturdy even when weighed down with water, but it hasn’t fallen over or anything and I think it will hold up well even with kids being a little rough with it.
