My son is 7 years old and he absolutely loves this hoop. It's very solid overall, and for the price you really can't go wrong. It's very easy to put together and contrary to what some other reviewers said, the directions are very easy to read and understand. The base is plastic and I put 100 pounds of sand in it, so it's not going anywhere if the wind picks up. The poles it comes with are the real deal and and made of thick metal. The rim is also metal and exactly what you'd find on an official hoop (it may be a tad bit smaller than an official rim). The backboard isn't official size, but it's definitely big enough for older kids to shoot from long range. You'll get a little movement when the ball bounces off of it, but for the price of the hoop you won't find anything better. The hoop is adjustable and although I haven't raised it as high as it will go, it starts lower than expected at around 5 1/2 feet. My son was thrilled with this as he can almost dunk. The base also has two wheels on one end, so I wheel it into our garage after my son plays with it as our association isn't fond on hoops left out, nor am I. If your child is under 12 and just getting into hoops, don't hesitate to buy this hoop!
