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!

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.

      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.

                  My 3 year old loves this and the best part is that a real ball works with it.., although I got a junior size ball as it works best for her. I would recommend that you get a better ball as the one it comes with is a typical little cheap ball. Other than that it's a wonderful product that seems to be very sturdy.
