Rated 3 out of 5 by Last Hero Mylec Hockey Buddy
Much to my pleasant surprise the Mylec Hockey Buddy arrived well before the estimated shipping date. I have always had good luck with Dicks and ordering items through my local store. The item is what it is, two pieces of foam held together by three Velcro pieces which are glued to the back of the hockey buddy. The kids really like it and it is great for a one on one game when no one wants to be the goaltender. Also really good for shooting and targeting practice. The quality isn't spectacular and the price is a bit high for a foam figure. Two of the three pieces of Velcro fell off after the first week. The glue appeared dried out / rotted as if it was sitting around in a warehouse, boxed up for too long. Luckily I am quite handy and I simply reattached the pieces with a hot glue gun. It is noticeably better now and a bit more sturdy. All and all the kids enjoy it and it still hasn't been destroyed. I would recommend ordering it through the store for zero shipping cost plus use of your score points and any coupons. I got it for a more reasonable price this way.
