    Best buy

    My son got this one for his sister cause she loves basketball. She always throws the ball in a cup and she loves it on her desk to play with.

    Great fun

    My son is 4.5, but the KiwiCo Crates are perfect for us to do as a team. We talk out each step, and if he struggles I tell him that's why we're a team! I use the words from the booklet to help guide his understanding of trajectory and angles in a way that he can understand it. The pride in his face getting a shot... priceless! Also, seeing me try and not succeed each time was great for both of us. We learn together.

    Excellent kit!

    My 7 year old loved making this. She likes playing basketball and was very excited to unbox. She needed some help with fixing the elastic bands and was able to understand what affects the launch of the ball. We got more mileage by using it for a speech activity in class where she had to explain why she liked this. Highly recommend for hours of fun.

    we enjoyed this one!

    This was a great project for my 8 yo girl. She assembled most by herself, and it didn't take too long to make. After it was built, she played with this for nearly 2 hours. Excellent for getting the kiddos away from the screen. She can't wait to play this game with her friend the next time she visits.
