We feel that, if you had to choose only one sporting ball to have rolling around in your gym or yard, this one would be it! Being almost exactly the same size as a soccer ball, one of these volleyballs can easily be substituted for a soccer ball in a backyard game of Soccer (or Football as our European friends call the game). Yet a volleyball's lighter weight lends itself beautifully to other impromptu or informal games - like Kickball, Handball, or even for use in the swimming pool or at the beach. Indeed, the official sport of Volleyball calls for a ball that's sturdy and well-made - yet one that's lighter than a soccer ball; and the reason for this is that Volleyball is played almost exclusively with the hands.
Naturally, this ball (like all the rest we produce) has a few jingling bells inside. Whether you've just thrown the ball across the yard or are waiting as it rolls towards you on the grass, these bells make a gentle yet completely audible tinkling sound during the entire time the ball is in motion.
So, to make a long story short, this is a truly multi-purpose ball. It's bound to get equal use in both the schoolyard and the Olympics!
