Best foosball table for kids
One of my main criteria will be the visual appeal of the table.
The most important feature for children safety is telescopic rods, that don’t extend outside the playing cabinet of the table when the handle is pushed fully in. It makes a little chance of injury even smaller. Unfortunately it’s really, really difficult to find this feature in cheaper tables.
Yes, it’s a bummer, that the majority of manufacturers don’t put emphasis on this feature but that’s because tournament tables traditionally don’t come with telescopic rods. All I can do is to bring this fact to your attention.
And one last point: when I call any table from this category ‘sturdy’ that really means ‘relatively sturdy for such a low price’. No table from this list is designed to withstand 4 adults playing. I did my best to find high quality products, but in reality it’s close to impossible to do so when we’re talking about something under $300. I don’t want to discourage you, it’s just that I personally feel a bit guilty using words like ‘sturdy’ here and when describing tournament quality tables.
