Purchased this for my 7 year old son. He's a fair athlete overall but hasn't had a lot of exposure to football play, so he was reluctant at times to catch a regular football, but this ball resolved that! He watches football alot and the Eagles insignia imprinted was a huge hit. The ball was really reasonably priced for the quality of it, which really suprised my husband. Again, the size was just right for a kid, success in throws and catching. A must have for any boy.
I bought this as a xmas present for my 10&7 yr old sons. The stiching looks sturdy (their previous ball split apart). My only concern was the size, but that was my fault..I didn't consider that 9in is not standard size. My husband thinks the smaller size will actually help the boys learn to throw easier (since they have smaller hands), so we are keeping the ball.
