I have had 3 boys. You know that a lot of boy toys aren’t cute or fun to look at. They are getting better nowadays, which is great. This ball is so cute, lol. I’ve had my share of basketballs in my home too. This is just like a regulation basketball, but child size, and a lot cuter. When your ball arrives you will also get a hand pump with the needle to fill it up. It’s by far the best free hand pump set up I‘ve received as well. The colors are vibrant. My 8 year old loves the elephants face. It is also available in a lion theme too. This ball is a sz. 3 basketball. It uses the usual pin to inflate it. It’s a machine stitched ball, and has 8 panels. The materials used in this ball are stated to be eco-friendly as well. That is actually surprising for a toy. The most important quality in a ball is, does it hold air? Yes, it does. My ball has been holding it’s air perfectly. You can sit on it, and play with it. Squeeze it for some resistance exercises while sitting down, and it holds its air. We are really happy with this ball. This is a smaller ball, great for over the door hoops, and child’s basketball hoops. My 8 year old can palm it and have a lot of fun. It’s a great family to go ball, that you throw in the car when you head out to the park, etc.. The material used is a rubber material. It has the usual textured grip to it as well. It’s literally a smaller basketball. A cute and fun ball at that. My son just loves it, so we are very comfortable recommending it.
I was afforded the opportunity to review Picador’s Cartoon Design Basketball for Kids Size 3, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This product arrives as shown. In your package you will get 1 deflated ball, 1 needle, 1 hose attachment and 1 hand pump.
