“ Brand: Kickster / Type: Football - Portable Goal „
I bought this for my two 6 and 5 year old grandsons' last Summer. They both love playing football and I thought it looked such a good idea that they could pack it up in a bag and take it to a field, the beach or when going camping.
***What it Says on the Box***
The World's Most Portable Football Goal complete with bag for storage
Lightweight 3.5 kg
Simple Assembly - All Poles are Joined Together with Elastic Cord (Just Like a Tent!)
Quick- Assembled in Only 2 Minutes, No Instructions Needed
Perfect for the Garden, Park or Holidays
Took rather longer than 2 minutes though instructions supplied are good.
A bit confusing that two of the back upright poles have to be bent quite a bit to fit into crossbar.
The two legs that sit on the floor needed twisting by two people to get it stable.
We managed to get it together after about 20 minutes but thought "well we know how to do it now so it should be easier next time"!
Kids really enjoyed using this goal post. We did take it apart and put it up at our holiday home and found this much easier now we knew how to do it so portability aspect was quite good.
Unfortunately, by the end of the Summer parts of the net had perished and I spent a good few hours sewing it back together with a very strong wax thread and feeling like a fisherman on the beach.
Perhaps we should have disassembled the goal post and stored it away between use. We HAD left it up in the garden through hot sun and rain, but this did seem too much of a chore. I think that at this price they could have used a much stronger net.
