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.

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.

        My son is 7 and this is his first year playing basketball so I wanted to get him a basketball to practice with and this colorful one caught my eye, when I surprised my son with it he was just as excited as I was. So was my neighbors son so I went back to purchase him 1 as well.

              I bought this for my 7 year olds birthday and he loves it! Nice and light which helps him learn how to dribble without struggling with the normal weight ball. Bright colors look great! Highly recommend

                Wanted a smaller, but not too small basket ball for my 6 year old to play with. This one is perfect. He is very happy with his colorful ball.
