What It Is
Little Tikes LeBron James Basketball Set is an introductory basketball set the grows with a child. The set comes with a base, a backboard that has five adjustable spots from 4-6 feet, a breakaway rim for dunking, and an easy-to-grip basketball. With all purchases a donation will be made to the LeBron James Dream Big Foundation.
Is It Fun?
The LeBron James Basketball Set sets up easily and can grow with a child. The rim is a tad larger that other junior basketball sets, making a little easier for kids to makes baskets and encouraging them to play more without making it too easy. The adjustable rims starts at four feet, but it has five adjustments working up to six feet. The breakaway rim is great for dunking, allowing a child to dunk a basketball without knocking over the backboard and base.
Who It’s For
While it's age-graded 2 and up, we can see children up to age 10 playing with this. It's an excellent way to introduce very young kids to basketball and improve their hand-eye coordination.
What To Be Aware Of
You must fill the base with sand to keep it from falling over. Sand is sold separately. We also had ongoing difficulty with the basketball net slipping out of the slots in the hoop.
