I bought this Little Tykes Basketball Set for my three year old grandson. He loves playing basketball and this one is the perfect size for him. Not only is the hoop height adjustable to six different settings, but the basketball that comes with it is also just his size. We filled the base with water, but it would probably be more stable if we would fill it with sand.
I like the sturdiness of the plastic material it is made with. We have always had good luck with the Little Tykes brand and so we trust that our grandson will get years of use out of this toy also.
It gives him so much confidence when he is able to make a basket. I think it will help develop his hand eye coordination in the process.
The only thing I would recommend is keeping it out of the sun as much as possible, as we have had other toys fade out.
