Great, lightweight basketball. My son loves to play and bounce it. It’s not as big as an adult basketball, making it perfect for kids. We were provided the ball in exchange for an honest review.

My preschooler has recently piqued interest in sports. I was excited to receive this basketball for him to play. It has a decent grip (even for small-ish hands) and is a bit lighter than most basketballs - almost reminded me of a playground ball. It’s easy to toss and he enjoys it.

This ball is the perfect size for my six year old son! He recently got interested in basketball and joined a team at the local YMCA. We got this ball to help him practice more at home and play with his older sister. He loves it! He can also grip this ball better thanks to the texture of it.

Though this did state it was for older kids, I was hoping that this ball would be small enough for our 3 year old to play with. It's still too big but it's small enough for my small hands, so we can learn the basics anyway! It's nice to have age appropriate sports equipment to encourage the kids to ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I chose this smaller version of a basketball for my 16 year old son who likes to carry a ball in the car all the time. I thought this smaller and lighter version might be more convenient to haul everywhere. Turns out my son loves it more because of how lightweight this ball is. He says it's so light...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a stylish, bouncy, lightweight basketball. My kids, who usually think they are too cool to still play with the "youth size" ball (despite being the right age) love playing with it. Well-made and designed.
