Here is a unique idea...customizing a sports ball for your child. We were able to design a baseball for my daughter through Make-A-Ball. I had my 15 year old design the ball for our 12 year old daughter. It was easy to use and she had some fun trying out different ideas.
We ended up with a patriotic looking ball with her name and a picture of my daughter in costume. First you pick the ball you want to design, a soccer ball, football, baseball, basketball, etc. Next you choose the layout, you know, how you want the writing and pictures placed. Then you choose the background. We chose the flag background. Last of all you personalize it.
The prices start at $25 for a baseball and then go up from there. You can personalize a football for $50-$52. It takes approx. 3 weeks for the ball to be created and shipped. I have to admit, after creating and ordering, I sort of forgot that we were waiting for the baseball to arrive!
Anyway, it showed up and she really likes it. These balls can be used for play, but it is suggested they be used for display. The high gloss synthetic leather makes them a little more slippery. Not to mention, who would want to ruin the look of the ball through wear and tear. I have a feeling my daughter will want to toss hers around a little though.
