My 5 year old nephew asked me to buy this for him during our last trip to Toys "R" Us and it was, hands down, the best toy purchase I have made this year! The quality of the basketball is excellent and size is perfect for his smaller hands. I have yet to visit him since when he wasn't practicing and dribbling that ball around!

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.

              It works. Holds air & bounces. Not lop-sided yet but only a matter of time. Simply put, it's a little kid's basketball that may last 6 months.
