This is a really well-made mini basketball game that would make a great great gift for a co-worker or anyone who sits at a desk all day. The base is proper metal, well-made and heavy enough to support the game and the launcher is a thinner, more flexible metal that allows you to turn it for aim and launch at different strengths. The baseboard is proper glass, making it look really cool.
It's not super hard to get the ball in, but it definitely takes a couple of tries and you have to learn to 'feel' your way there and figure out the right strength and angle. It's pretty fun, but it'll be an especially big hit with this who like to fidget or take a fun break throughout the day!
The string is a good idea as it prevents you from losing the ball, but it can also get tangled which is a bit annoying. Still, I'll take that over having to walk around looking for my ball all day!
A neat little toy, that's well-made enough to make a great gift.
