Maybe lopsided can be a good thing
Reviewed in the United States on October 15, 2018
I'm giving this ball 3 stars because the ball we got it IS lopsided.
A quick way to tell whether it is lopsided or not is to throw it up in the air right above your head, maybe 15 feet or so. If it spins in a perfect circle, then it's not lopsided, but if it has ANY kind of a wobble to it, it's lopsided. Depending on how severe the wobble would determine HOW lopsided it is.
I got the black and yellow ball for my almost 4-year-old, and the ball is as nice looking as it seems in the pictures.
It also has an excellent grip on it.
The one I got IS lopsided, but not severely. You can't tell by looking at it, but you CAN tell when it's thrown in the air.
Here's the thing. Magic Johnson used to dribble the basketball when he was growing up, in the grass! Yes, that's true. Because the ball almost never bounces back precisely where it would on a totally flat surface, dribbling on grass for hours a day would make someone an extremely adept ball handler, i.e., Magic Johnson.
So I'm gonna look at this lopsided ball like Magic and his basketball. If this soccer ball goes a little off path, unexpectedly, it's gonna help my son quickly readjust to the new ball path, and I think it will improve his skill, maybe more quickly than it would have otherwise.
Having said THAT, lol, I will be looking to get him another ball as well that is not lopsided.
Hope this was helpful!
