I bought this ball for a non-traditional use: my miniature donkey LOVES to roll and toss balls, and slightly deflated soccer balls seem to be easiest for him to grab. We've had this one for several months now, and it has withstood his rough play extremely well. In fact, I'm back to buy another so we have a backup in case our first gets lost. I definitely recommend!

This is a VERY tough soccer ball. My Siberian Husky likes to play soccer and usually we only get to play with an inflated soccer ball for a day or so before psssst and then we play with a squished ball. This ball has yet to pop despite her teeth routinely getting stuck. I almost wish it would pop but it doesn't. If you are hard on soccer balls this is the ball you want.

I bought this in the size 3 for my soon to be 3-year-old soon. He absolutely loves this ball, and he has used it every day since we bought it. It seems very durable, and it is of great quality for the price. It is so good for the price that we are going to buy a size 5 for us to play with (since that is the adult size).

If you are unsure of which size to get your child, I will recommend what size I think based off real-world use. The size 3 is good for any child until about first grade or second grade, which is when a child should move into a size 4. The size 4 should last until they get to middle school (around 6th or 7th grade), and then they would move into the adult official size 5. It is also important to note that the balls will get a little bigger as they are used more and more, so a size 3 ball could actually end up being close to the size of a size 4 ball if it is used long enough.

I bought three and used them for juggling, shooting practice and kicking against a wall. I juggled 90,000 times in 3 months, and shot many times on goal and kicked against walls. These are very durable. I look for durability in practice balls and these are superb. I wonder if Wilson has the newer cover pattern with the same internal structure in any model of ball. It would be wise to do that for the sake of staying current. I love the feel when kicking. Variable amounts of air can be used based on personal preference while practicing. A little less air allows a more forgiving bounce while juggling.

Bought this for our grand nephew for Christmas. What a beautiful soccer ball AND we feel good about him having a 'regulation' size and weight for his age (under 8 years old). I was really impressed with the ball and think our young nephew will really enjoy it. Sometimes when a younger player uses equipment for older kids or grown men they will become frustrated because it's really hard to learn with something too large for them. I feel great about gifting our cute little nephew with this ball and hope he enjoys it for many years!

Everything an inexpensive, real soccer ball should be. This Wilson was significantly better-constructed, heavier and more durable than I expected it to be. Every purchase, quality-wise, must be weighed against price. And for less than $10, this sucker will last you a LONG time. I bought it for my 2-year-old. This will be the size ball he uses until he's 8 or so. Assuming he wants to play soccer. Oh dear lord, please have him want to play soccer. Come on. I need this!

But I digress. It comes inflated (a very nice perk to discover upon arriving home after a 1.5 hour commute). He does not need a featherweight ball that responds instinctively to the tiniest touch of his tiny foot. He does not need an aerodynamically groundbreaking sphere of magic that curves by 40% on every penalty kick.

He needs a dead-solid banger, and this is that. More than expected, by a good margin, for the price.

We buy dozens of these balls every year for our bubble soccer company. For the price, it generally can't be beat. Most of the 1-star reviews seem to be for single purchases where they received a defective ball. So far, the only defect we've experienced with these balls (hence, the 4-star instead of 5-star rating) was a couple of balls that started showing a different color material at the seams after several uses. Evidently, the ball material was previously a different color other than white and the material was re-dyed at the factory before the balls were manufactured. This only happened on a couple of balls purchased about a year ago. No other balls in more recent purchases have had this problem.

This ball has a few scratches and one of the seams got a bit loose. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.

But to be fair, it has been used and abused several days per week. The kids at my son's school prefer to play with this ball than with any other ball after pick up. If they are already playing with another ball, they replace it with this one. It looks more "grown up" and it's also softer, which helps a lot because during elementary school they aren't great at aiming, but they are hitting the ball hard enough to hurt somebody's face if the ball were too hard.

My son has received several perks thanks to this ball, such as being able to pick his own team.

A little disappointed in the cosmetics of the ball. I ordered three to ship in the Christmas shoe-boxes so had to remove them from their boxes and deflate them. Each ball had a light brownish stain about 4 inches in diameter. I don't know if they had been sitting in a warehouse for some time or what, but the stain was fairly visible. I figured they were get a lot dirtier within the first few days of use but still did not like sending them with this cosmetic defect.

It's alright, real disappointed that the price went down afterwards. My item did come in its original packaging, however mine that was bought brand new had a few small dents inside which of course wasn't exactly appreciated. As for the ball itself, it does the job but I wouldn't recommend this at all for professionals. It not a sturdy ball and it's very lightweight. I feel like if forced too much it could pop easily. I think this would be great for kids or for beginners, it's not all that horrible however the concerns still apply. Since I am not a professional player, I am decently happy with it. It's also a good gift for someone who could be interested in such.
