Not Intended for Children Under 13 Years of Age ???
on June 28, 2013
There are 2 favorable reviews of that give an accurate insight into this product...the one that describes how her 4 year old enjoys it...and the one that describes how her CAT enjoyed it. Seriously folks, this product is only appropriate for tiny little people...like for example,an 7 or 8 yer old. When I was a kid my parents bought my a small pool table...it was only about 3 ft. X 5 ft and it was on it's own legs. I must have used it for a hundred hours. I bought this unit as a present for a 99 year old in-law who loves to play pool. I returned it the same day.
To start with...you need a STURDY small table to place it on. After all, you have to be able to walk around it. Even then you need to tape the unit down to the table. I found the biggest problem with this downsized unit to be with the pool sticks. The sticks are only 18 inches long. Before buying this, take an 18 inch stick and imagine that you're trying to hit a ball. Your elbow can't go back far enough...it's more like you have to push the stick rather than to utilize the normal motion of pulling the stick back and hitting the ball.
Unlike other reviewers, I found no problem with the QUALITY of this product. The problem is with the CONCEPT...you can't make a table this small and still maintain good functionality.
