One of my three grandkids has a birthday December 27th - 2 days after Christmas so................ about five years ago I asked him if he'd like to go shopping at Toys 'r Us for his birthday present since he just got many gifts from Santa two days before so............ ON his birthday I take him shopping. Now the other two grandkids have decided they like the idea of shopping with me for their birthday gift. It's a fun day for all of us.

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.

        This is a great basketball. It is as heavy as some so my son and younger daughter can both shoot it really well! Also it is easy to see when they leave it outside. No more blending in.

                I bought this ball for my son to use during his basketball practice and he never loses sight of it due to its vibrant appearance. It's light weight and easy to handle. I would recommend it to other moms who have up and coming athletes.
