What It Is
Help little sports lovers practice their slam dunks with the Shootin' Hoops Junior Basketball Set. This adjustable basketball hoop increases in six-inch increments between 30 inches and 48 inches to accommodate little hoopsters as they grow. One six-inch basketball is included. The large solid backboard and wide rim make it easy for kids to shoot the basketball into the hoop. The base of the basketball hoop can be filled with sand or water (both not included) to keep it sturdy, and there are also two built-in holders for drinks or ball storage on the base.
Is It Fun?
This makes a great introductory basketball set for little kids. If your child is showing an interest in basketball or if you just want to help your child get active and work on those gross motor skills, this is a great way to engage little kids in physical activity and help them practice their basketball shooting.
Who It’s For
The Shootin' Hoops Junior Basketball Set is for ages 1.5 and up, and we think a 1.5-year-old will be able to walk up to this and drop the ball in without any problems. Because of the set's solid backboard, as kids get older, they can also take bank shots or just go for that swish. (Mom and Dad can play along, too.)
What To Be Aware Of
This set was really easy to put together. You'll need either 15 pounds of sand or 1.25 gallons of water to weigh down the base of the basketball hoop. Sand and water are not included.
When setting up, you'll also need to inflate the basketball using a standard bicycle pump with inflating pin. A pump is not included.
