This basketball was the best size for my son (who's almost 2). He loves playing basketball. My only concern was...not so much with the product but with my experience with the store... I tried getting him the smaller (more kid friendly size) balls but they (along with some of the adult basketballs) were either nearly or completely deflated! I had to take one back before I got the one I have now.

I would buy this again but make sure it's more inflated.

The small ball is perfect for little hands that are learning how to dribble and shoot a basketball. However, when purchased, the ball was a bit deflated. We had to pump it up a bit when we got home. It was the only ball of this kind in the store so we are not sure if that is just how they are sold.

                            My child is almost three and he enjoys playing with the basketball. It is just the right size for him to dribble the ball around.
