mini foosball table
Mini foosball table makes a great gift for kids. Have to be honest, it’s not really my cup of tea, since I’m way past that age. But let’s not make it about me and come up with some products that stand out in this category.
It’s not all great here in terms of high quality materials, mostly plastic, MDF, but sometimes real wood. Visual appeal is also an important factor that influences my choice.

In some sense this item should’ve been my first recommendation. People on Amazon love it and I get why: for only $20 you get the very basic toy and that’s all kids need. It’s a good way to check if your kids even buy into this type of games. If they drop it tomorrow- hey, you’ve only spent 20 bucks on this, so it’s not a big deal.
I like this one simply because it tries to replicate the visuals of full-seized tables. It’s does a great job at that, but some things are left to be desired.
It also happens to be made of relatively high quality materials. The size is an important factor and FX40 is bigger than most of the other tables in this category. Yes, tabletops are designed to be compact, but hell, it’s so nice to be able to play a game with my big adult hands! Plus, kids love big toys/presents.
…as if that wasn’t enough, they’ve even added 3 goalies! It just pushes all the right buttons for more mature audience. Even the horrible plastic handles aren’t as bad here. This model is awesome not because of some unique feature, but rather because it doesn’t have the downsides you expect to see.
