The 6" Gator Skin Softi Ball is a fun toy that encourages kids to be physically active. It's made from a dense foam that is very resistant to tearing to last through lots of play. This Gator Skin ball's exterior is a non-sting surface, which makes it suitable for dodgeball and other sports. At 6" wide, it's just the right size for elementary school children to hold, catch and throw. The easy grip design prevents it from slipping out of your hands.
