I bought this for my son when he turned two years old. I love it. It is adjustable so it can grow with your child. It also comes with a wide rim so it gives the child more of a chance to get the ball in the hoop. The junior size ball that comes included with it is just the perfect size. Before I bought this I did a lot of research on it. The price was around 50.00 when I invest that much into a toy I want to make sure it is going to last as well as be played with. I know have two boys and they both play with it. It was worth the investment. It teaches them motor skills and hand eye coordination on top of getting them outside to get some much needed fresh air and exercise. Little Tikes outdoor equipment is expensive but don't let the price fool you they are built to last. I have never had an issue with this basketball hoop. My kids still to this day play with it on a daily basis. It brings hours of enjoyment and you can even play with them. Outdoor family fun is the key ingredient to a happy healthy household. This set will give you that.
