Basketball Fun -- Little Tikes Adjust 'n Jam Pro Review

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Cooper is such a big boy that everyone assumes he is going to play football.  As his mom, I just want him happy!  However I love sports and my husband was very active in sports as a child; so of course we want our children to be active in sports.  Not just football for our extra large son.

This Holiday Season has brought us to working with Little Tikes!  I am so happy about this because they are going to help me introduce basketball to my Little Man!

Little Tikes'™ goal is to create and supply thoughtful and imaginative products to customers and consumers around the world. To reach that goal, Little Tikes'™ associates' actions are guided by the principle of Customer satisfaction, Teamwork, Innovation, Marketing, Continuous Improvement, and Sustainability.



The Little Tikes Basketball Adjust 'n Jam Pro is so easy to put together.  While it comes in many different pieces in the box, I was a little worried about doing it myself.  This Momma had no problems putting it together, I am proud to say!   


Cooper couldn't wait for me to finish putting the Jam Pro together!  He grabbed the basketball and tried to make a basket a few times while I was moving things around.  Good thing the ball is rubber, because I'm sure I'd have a bump to nurse otherwise!  I choose to believe he was aiming at the basket and not my head.  


Other than the obvious use for this product, I am happy to see there is a space to add sand in the bottom to help it stay put.  I can just see it now, Cooper running to dunk the ball and he is going too fast.  Then BAM!!!  He hits the ground and the goal is on it's side because I failed to fill the bottom!  I better get on that!


As Cooper gets taller, all I have to do is lift the goal a little higher and challenge him a bit.  I love this about Little Tikes!  They've created this product to grow with our children!



This review is based strictly on my own opinion.  Others may have different opinions or experiences with the products mentioned above.  I was provided samples free of charge by the company or a PR Agency.  I have provided my open and honest opinions.  No other type of compensation was received for this review.

  22. I love that it adjusts in size. We had one similar and my son loved it. It's still in the garage though he's long outgrown it because it's one of the few toys he just doesn't want to give away.
