Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Doesn't want to bounce This ball doesn't seem to want to bounce. You have to really push it down to get it to bounce up. We had the cheaper one first and I liked it better April 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just what I expected Its a nice size for the pre teens and nice coloring to it. It also weighs less than regular size which makes it easier for the younger ones to shoot... January 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rookie ball Perfect for kids learning the game. Highly recommend October 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great basketball for kids When I saw the 25% lighter description, I decided to purchase for my kids. Now my 6 year old can actually shoot properly at a 10 foot rim (although my 3 year old still cries because he can't). The ball is lighter, but not too light, and is great for little boys and girls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for young kids! Bought this ball for my 9 year old niece for her birthday. She loves that it's lighter and now she can practice her shooting form with greater ease! Excellent purchase. June 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Ball I got this bball for my 8 year old daughter and it is perfect for her. She had no problems shooting it up to a regulation height hoop due to the lighter weight. The texture of the ball has a nice leathery feel and seems pretty durable. I was testing the ball outside in my driveway and one of my neighbors teased me about my "rainbow" ball and asked me if I was coming out. Other than ignorant people mistaking the colors of the ball for a gay pride flag, it is a very nice ball. April 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent first ball. This ball is very easy to handle and shoot for my son who is in his first season. November 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase for Kids Great purchase for youths. The light weight design allows kids (beginner to intermediate) to get the ball to the rim while promoting good form and hand placement. October 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to grip for little hands Perfect for six year old just learning the game. It is light so it does not tire him out. August 14, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by perfect for my family Great size and weight for my 4 and 6 year old. We have had a great time using it and I justified the cost with the fact that it seem yo be a quality product that will last years. July 2, 2012
