With the hot summer weather here, I love to see the children outside playing. We like to add variety in our garden by adding some new outdoor toys each year and clearing out the ones which have been outgrown or no longer work properly. This year I had a look through the outdoor toys selection at House of Fraser and we were sent this Haro basketball set to try out, which has been a lot of fun so far.

Before I start telling you about the basketball set, please excuse the state of our garden we are in the middle of having it done! So just ignore that and focus on the basketball 😉

The set needs some assembly, which will take around 20 minutes and then it’s ready to stand in the garden. Since it’s free standing, you can move it from place to place in the garden if you need to re-organise. Just add sand or water in the base to weigh it down.

Even the younger ones enjoyed having a good try too.

The set comes with the ball and pump, so you have everything included to get playing right away.
