KidiGo Basketball Hoop

When looking to buy an indoor basketball hoop, make sure the KidiGo Basketball Hoop is on your list. This hoop is not only great fun to use, but it also looks totally cool. Our children and parent testers loved the realistic sound effects, encouraging messages, and different game modes. Children got a real kick out of the bright LED lights that illuminate the backboard and change colors as they play. Additionally, they loved all the sounds programmed into this toy, such as wild cheering and applause. Parents liked how the hoop delivers messages to encourage children not to give up and keep trying when they don’t make their shot. It kept children engaged and motivated to develop and hone their shooting skills. And of course, it keeps score for them too. Children can choose between multi-player and solo games like score challenges, free play, time challenges, color challenges, and more! Parents were impressed with the build of the hoop, believing that it was built to withstand a lot of rough play. The basketball is about the size of a softball, is light, and has some texture that gives it a nice rubbery feel. In general, this is not the type of ball that would hurt little fingers or that, as a parent, you’d be afraid of seeing flying around the house. The hoop is made to be hung on a door, and when done, you can leave it in place, or you can simply flip the hoop closed for easy storage. Testers, the grown ones, loved that the volume could be turned down and even off and that it shuts off by itself after a few minutes of inactivity to save battery life. This is truly one of the best door-mounted hoops on the market today.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
