Beginners start out small and pros grow up tall with the Grow to Pro Basketball set from Fisher Price. This basketball hoop starts out at a lower height for young basketball players, and grows with them as they develop their skills enough to raise the hoop. At heights of 3, 4, 5, and 6 feet, kids' developing basketball skills will have them going pro in no time!
The Grow to Pro Basketball set starts out at a height of 3 feet for toddlers over the age of two to start working on their basketball skills. Over time, you can adjust the height of the hoop to 4, 5, and 6 feet so the hoop still challenges kids practicing their shooting and their moves. This hoop gives kids the opportunity to work on their moves by themselves as well as with others through team play or shooting games.
In addition to its adjustable height, the Grow to Pro Basketball set features an easy-attach ball return that means kids no longer have to chase after the shots they make. The set also features a steady base, which can be filled with 50 pounds of water or sand to make sure it doesn't tip over. This allows kids to play their hardest without having to worry about knocking over the set.
Setup is easy with included instructions, and the hoop is great for indoor and outdoor play. The only necessary maintenance is to make sure the inflatable ball maintains a circumference of 21 to 22 inches and that you do not leave the toy outside in the cold if you use water in the base.
Our testers found that they had as much fun playing basketball by themselves as they did with their friends, and improved their skills both ways. Adult testers also enjoyed playing basketball with their children, making this set a fun activity for the whole family.
