Review Content Fast Delivery & exactly what we ordered! After shopping everywhere in our home city and not being able to find this exact product, I chose to order from Sharper Image because of their great reviews and prices. The delivery was extremely quick. Our 11yr old granddaughter loves this! We bought this for our 11 yr old granddaughters birthday. She opened the box and had it set up in about 2 minutes, then drug it outside by herself and was playing with neighbor children in about 2 more minutes. So easy and convenient for parks, camping, beach, parties. great product can take it anywhere easy to put up and take down a great fresh air activity with a no battery charge requirem Will check with gift receivers once they use it....but to me it looks great. Will let u know later I would buy this again easy to set up at home or park or beach, good to entertain the kids at a church pcnic bamboozeled by the bad badminton set The net is too short and too small. Would work well for amatuers but not for a bad blasting badminton player. Also the birdies broke after just playing one game. So many uses!! If your family likes to play, this set allows you and your family to set up quickly and start having fun. We have used it to play volleyball as well... on the beach and in the snow! Fun and convenient This badminton set is quick and easy to set up compared to those nets that need to be staked into the gound and left in the yard. The only downside is the light weight makes it susceptible to blowing over. Sometimes it needs to be weighted down but the easy set up make it worth it. casual fun This is a really great gift for someone who wants something fun to occupy a few minutes here and there. It is a great way to get exercise and have fun doing it. It doesnt require a big yard and can be easily put away and stored without a major hassle. Awesome idea. Next Best to the Real Thing Blows over easily if theres a strong wind. Sometimes difficult to get the pipes in and out of the stand during setup/takedown. This can be a fun little set but the biggest drawback is it doesnt come with any type of rope or any way to mark boundary lines. Great, easy to set up Easy to set up. Serve the purpose Used in park. Great badminton set We love the easy set-up and that the case is the base. Weve taken it to the beach twice and its a hit with everyone of all ages. Looking forward to getting lots of use out of this badminton set this summer! Excellent for family get-tog ethers! We had a traditional badminton set but it took a long time to set up and mowing around the poles was a bit of a pain. So I purchased this portable set for my husband for Fathers Day. They set it up right away! My son has brought it over to friends homes and everyone loved the easy set up. We just purchased it so I cant comment on the durability of the set. Its attractive and the rackets and birdie are well-made. Excellent product! excellent Setup and small bag containing Comes in storage bag that is super portable. Sets up in less than 1 minute. Had fun playing on Xmas day in driveway. Perfect for taking to neighborhood or family functions. I would buy this as a gift fur someone Bought for my husband for Fathers Day we love it our family loves to play easy to put together Great for Indoor use! My children use this as an indoor volleyball net with balloons. They use it several times a day. Great fun to play and watch! Great tennis Great family game The Badminton Set was a total hit! :) This is a great family gift. The gift was for my 5 year old grandson. His 6 1/2 brother, 3 1/2 sister, cousins and family really enjoyed playing badminton on his birthday! My grandson loves to play outdoors so this was a perfect gift for him as he loves anything active and sports minded! Easy to set up and fun to play Great for impromptu backyard party Portable fun Easy set-up, light weight yet sturdy set, perfect for taking on a picnic or quickly setting up in the backyard. Self-storage is intuitive and easy to use. Finally no more poles to mow around Had one set up with posts in the ground and lines with stakes in the ground. Terrible to mow around. This is great only set it up when we want to use it. lotsa fun in a case i really like the fact that i can set up this net within a few minutes without the need of stakes, so it can be setup on my concrete driveway or on the grass in the backyard. nice sturdy case & very portable... great outdoor fun product! Who woulda thunk? This is excellent to set up during a family BBQ and out away when you finish. Doesnt take up too much space, and great bonding oppertunity with the family! AWESOME ITEM FOR THE KIDS AT THE VACATION HOUSE A very mini ov priced badminton set This is a very small badminton set that two people could barely use let alone four. Not nearly regulation size. Found elsewhere for half the price sharper mage was charging. Difficult to get poles together and now. Cant get them apart! Love it!!!! I loved playing badminton as a family when I was a kid. Just played with my 12 year old and she loved it. We had so much fun and laughed more than we had in awhile. Love this set! Very easy set-up and take-down. Play in our own back yard, at the beach and camping. Perfect family entertainment-all ages can play. We bought some extra birdies and its a little difficult to play (sometimes blows over) if its really windy but that is more than made up for in how easy it is to transport. We are buying it as a gift for our family that lives in another state. Nice quality product I have not actually used the product yet. It was purchased for the upcoming visit of my former exchange student and his three children and wife. I used to really enjoy playing backyard badminton with my brother when I was young. So, Im hoping these children will enjoy having some physical activity to keep them amused and busy! My only concern is that the base is strong enough to keep the net in place. Otherwise I like the looks of the set as far as quality of workmanship. Easy Peasy Badminton Set Easy set up for young and old. Fun activity for entertaining guests. Purchased as a gift for a young active family. QUESTION How well does this work in windy conditions, such as So. Cal beaches? Approximately what wind strength will knock it down? It says the case weighs 8.5 lbs, which isnt a lot. I just dont want to buy it and find that even in light winds it falls down all the time! Love it. Great for the park & the beach. Take it anywhere can go anywhere! well be taking it to our annual family reunion, its sure to become part of the tradition Excellent compact set A really great badminton set. My kids love to go in the backyard and play. They also love to take it places because it is so easy to move. The only problem is that it can blow over sometimes but we can anchor it with ropes. Overall, a great set! love it This badminton set was exactly what I was looking for. It is portable and durable. It comes with everything you need for a quick casual game whether it be on the go or in your own backyard.
