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.

          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.

                                It's a perfect size for my 6 year old son! He loves things that are different colors, so his eyes went straight to this ball. It's perfect because he can actually dribble the ball and shoot it without any problems when he plays with his dad !!!! It's awesome !

                                    The product was for my 7yrs. old grandson and he loves it. He can handle it real well, make his baskets, and do his tricks with it. He has also been caught sleeping with it. Great choice for his hand size.
