I bought this for my grandson after I read all the reviews alrady posted. So I was forewarned of the possiblility of some flaws, especially with the balls. I warned my daughter of the posibility of the balls being fragile and that she might need to buy some others at a dollar store or something. She was glad I gave her the heads-up because the game came with collapsed balls. They had some others that would work and absolutely LOVE this game! So happy I didn't let the warning keep me from buying it as a gift. It will be a great game for years to come as he develops his throwing skills.
