Built to a smaller scale, without sacrificing any of the bounce or durability of bigger balls, these 2.5" dia rubber playground balls lend themselves to a wide variety of activities!
Small Size, Mighty Construction
These itty-bitty balls feature the same great construction as our larger playground balls. The two-ply premium rubber cover is soft to the touch, but incredibly durable. It will not crack or break down, even with everyday use on blacktop or concrete surfaces.
The tough cover protects the integrity of the ball, and ensures it performs for years of play.
These palm-sized balls open up endless play options. Use them for something as basic as playing catch, or for more advanced play, like lacrosse (shooting and passing), racquet and paddle games, baseball or softball, floor hockey, and much more!
Appealing to All Ages
The smaller size of the Itty™ makes it great for all ages -- students will love that it fits in the palm of their hand! Younger students will find it less scary and intimidating than a regular-sized playground ball, and older students will enjoy the challenge of using a smaller ball for target and knock-down games. All will appreciate the stippling on the cover, as it allows for an enhanced grip and better ball control.
Use these balls with younger students to introduce and practice tossing and catching. Have them stand close together and use both hands, particularly when catching. Challenge older, more skilled students by having them play catch farther apart, or using just 1 hand to catch.
The unique, fun size also allows you to create different game iterations, optimizing play for any game, sport or age group. Teach creativity and encourage kids to think outside the box, to hone their skills no matter what the activity.
The Rainbow® set of 12 balls features 2 balls in each of the Rainbow® colors.
