Review & Giveaway: Nerf Wall-to-Wall Basketball — Holiday Gift Guide

nerf-wall-to-wall-basketballMy son is a basketball nut. He shoots, he scores! Well, perhaps he shoots and he misses the net by quite a bit would be more apt, but the kid is madly enthusiastic about basketball. He loves it! Plays when he can, but…
Our outside basketball net is down for the count. An awesome family gift we bought for Christmas the year he was 1 or so is officially dead. No hope of recovery. Why is the net down and out? Who is the culprit? The kids? Nope, not strong enough to push down a net. I can barely push it down. Neighborhood hooligans? Thankfully, the high schoolers or young adults are not a factor. No. The reason for our felled basketball net is the wind.
The wind is so fierce that we have had the following things happen:
– a tornado — yes a tornado — toppled and mangled our swing set.
– a large, hard plastic kiddie pool with a metal step blew down to the end of the cul-de-sac…I wish I had taken a photo of my husband with the pool on his head walking back to our house. Darn…what if I had a blog back then! I would so have blogged that incident!
–  an Adirondack chair, a kiddie table with umbrella, and a host other outdoor toys have blown off the deck and broken. A Little Tikes wagon once hurtled down the driveway and almost knocked a kid down!
– a Little House playhouse blew off the swing set area, rolled about 20 feet, and crashed in to our kitchen window. Scary. Read here for details.
So, you can see why an INDOOR basketball net would work for the Musings from Me family. No wind indoors!

    We play basketball in our driveway. I’m intrigued by this. Does Nerf have advice on not breaking everything in your house when playing indoor basketball?

    We play soccer together.

    We love to go bike riding together and play soccer and dodgeball in the backyard.

    Frisbee for us. Our kids are almost old enough for basketball, though so we’ll probably get a hoop in our driveway soon.
