This is a pretty neat little toy. My 4 year old grandson was a little upset by it because u really cant play it out in the grass or kick it super hard. It is more like a air hockey game that you can make a goal for and skid it back and forth and try and score. I am sure you could make up all sorts of games to play with it, but small children just have to be taught that it is not a super tough toy that can be played with super rough. It is a neat concept and is fun with proper usage.
