    Nothing special about this ball. It is a great size for kids, but it seems to have some disformation to it and a really funny feel. I bought it online site unseen and was generally disappointed, as I expected a better quality from Spalding.

    I needed to find a ball that is both light and small enough for my 4 year old son to shoot at a 6 foot goal so I bought him volleyball, and a "regular" jr Spalding" 27.5 inch ball at the local Walmart store. Though light enough for him to handle, the volleyball did not have the feel of a basketball, and the regular basketball... well, the thought of it jamming my boys finger on a ill-timed bounce made me think maybe he should stick with the softer volleyball for now. Then I found the Spalding Rookie ball online, I ordered the multi colored model. I was not disaapointed when I received it. Just a beautiful, beautiful ball. It's definitely lighter, and easier to handle then the regular jr ball. The cover is typical of an adult indoor/outdoor ball,offers a good grip, and the bounce feels true and sounds great. The multi color ball should help him identify if he's putting the right rotation on his shots. I was surprised though, that the ball was shipped without the original Spalding packaging, maybe it doesn't exist? It was just the ball in the shipping package.

    Ball is perfect for Pre-K through probably 4th grade...same ball that is used at YMCA for these age groups. Ball has great grip if your going to use it indoor only. It was shipped fast and my 6 year old is dribbling it around the house and loving it. It is a really nice ball for a good price.
