These basketballs are very bright colors and the kids loved them. They are great quality and the perfect size for them to hold. It has made their drills a lot more fun just because the balls look fun! If your kids like basketball, I would definitely recommend this one as a great starter ball.

This basketball is good if you are practicing dribbling and moves. It is extremely bouncy due to the material of the ball. It doesn't have the characteristics of a typical basketball when it hits the rim. It bounces extremely easily so it will bounce far from the hoop. I wish I would have purchased the other youth ball available that day.

      I bought this for my nephew last year for his birthday. He used it a lot but then got a hole in it so I purchased it again for his birthday this year and he was thrilled. I feel like it should have lasted longer than a year but then again he is a 7 yr old boy so it's hard telling what that ball has been through

              Smaller size & rubber easy to grip/hold. Lighter weight makes it easier for smaller hands to play with. Bounces well. Able to b inflated. colorful(personal preference by self and children). Neat to watch when spinning. Was purchased as a bd gift by young child for another young child who was very excited to receive it & couldn't wait to start playing.
