How it works
From toddlers up to around 5 years old, this indoor-outdoor basketball set will give children tons of enjoyment while they also develop and hone their basketball moves for when they get older. Growing children can easily adjust the choice for height since there are six settings starting at 2ft high and ending at 4ft. The rim is oversized to encourage and help children to score while at the same time subtly developing the body, eyes and hand coordination. Children won’t have to stay home bored on rainy days as this is good for use in the home and can be placed in a child’s bedroom, a garage or any free room where they can play and practice alone or invite friends for team play and try some competitive fun. This means this toy set is good for every season and occasion.
Basketball is a national sporting pastime in the USA and very popular in many other countries. It’s a great way to keep fit, develop teamwork and competitive skills for young kids.
The base is weighted down by filling it with average grain sized sand to ensure stability while kids are playing and having fun. This set gives younger children year-round access for practicing and playing basketball. On summer days the set can be carried outside and easily set-up and in winter you can put it in any room that has enough space for your children to play basketball.
Ease of Use & Features
The features are well designed for enabling young children to score those important points because the hoop is larger. Children get to score and enjoy the feeling of success while developing coordination abilities. The three balls that come with each set are junior size kid friendly and perfect for practicing.
You will need to add sand to the base so that it is weighted and stable. There is a nice choice of adjustable height sessions which means as children grow taller they can re-set the height of the loop. This creates a toy with the potential for many years of use. For example, if a child gets this when he is 2-3 years old he/she can play with this for 3 perhaps 4 more years. This set allows for one player more or even a competitive three players because there are three provided with this hoop-set.
This set allows children to be competitive but also to be team players when required to do so. An outstanding additional feature is that the set can be used indoors during cold or unsuitable rainy - snowy weather and outdoors when the weather is nice. There are not that many toy sets which offer the benefits offered by this one.
Materials & Functions
When assembled, the set can easily be carried to use anywhere around the house, the garage or the yard. The three small balls are great for child-sized hands, they are easy to hold, manipulate and throw accurately. These are balls built from a soft material which means if accidentally thrown at another child, no harm will happen. Parents have reported that even a two-year-old child found the basketball set to be really interesting and they were able to score baskets.
The materials used in the making are sturdy and have strong durability while the surfaces are smooth enough so no harm can be done to young children. Functions stay true over the years so as a preschooler gets taller, this toy height can be altered to suit her/him.
There are a lot of good functions and this product will enable very young children to enjoy independent play and gradually improve body coordination and good balance skills along with visual coordination. The aims of basketball are more than just sport, it encourages exercise, cooperative teamwork, determination and of course great fun. If your child shows little interest in sports, this could be a motivational gift through which they can gradually and independently enjoy while they develop more sporting skills and abilities. This is also a great way to encourage children to explore their own abilities and move forward into competitive games.
The final appealing function to mention is that this set has indirect positive confidence and psychological possibilities for children with special needs. They can learn to focus, exercise and have objectives, which they can repeat and practice.
Safety & Care
A clear bonus is that this product introduces children to sport without foul weather limitations because it works inside the home where children can play and practice while being secure and safe from cold or wet weather. Yet, equally good is that during those warm months this can be set up safely in a garden where kids can let of energy and enjoy long sessions of sporting fun. The product has a child-friendly design and can be altered for different heights by taller or growing children. The materials for the stand are durable and clearly strong and can certainly withstand robust play from kids. Boys and girls will be delighted to be introduced into a very popular sport at a young age and this will give them a very good start for developing sporting abilities.
A child can play alone and practice until he/she has mastered getting accurate at scoring shots or children can play together competitively and take turns at scoring shots through the hoop. This really works as a great way for social interaction among children.
As a great gift for very young children, the set will bring a lot of interest, focus, fun, excitement and important exercise for a good number of years both inside and out of the home.
