Verified customer review: “I got this as a 2nd birthday gift for my grandson. It's smaller than I expected but I'm sure he will love it. I found the clips didn't quite connect in a couple of the elements but after a bit of a struggle they went in. I just hope there isn't a problem when it needs to be adjusted for the golf and skittles games. The music it plays on the football selection is very loud and can be annoying to adults. It seems that you need to hit the net in a specific place to register the goal but we'll see when he receives it. All in all, for the price, its a canny enough piece of kit which I'm sure he'll enjoy.”
