Took my son and his grandfather about 20 minutes to put it together on Christmas morning. Months later, it is still in excellent shape - it's not sloping or the handles are not loose
We purchased this for our elementary aged boys for Christmas. We are having a great time with this table top fooseball. My husband and I can play on one side and our boys on the other and we are having so much fun! The boys really get into playing on this table on their own as well. This set only has three rods per side and it is a smaller game surface so there are dead spots where the plastic players do not reach and the ball does just stop. If fooseball players already have consistent access to a standing full size fooseball (perhaps at a friends), as my kids do, and if your players are older this probably would not be the unit for you...they will laugh at it...our kids do a little...but they have too good of a time to give it up totally. It was easy to put together though you must carefully follow the sequence on the directions. It is sturdier than I expected and has handled some crash downs while on the foyer floor with no damage at all. Unfortunately, our dog can get all handles and caps off very easily with a quick chase down these parts have had no damage either. Quite happy for the intro to the game for the cost.
