This is a really cool basketball that lights up and glows colors. The ball lights up with two Hi-Bright LEDS, lighting it up incredibly. When you stop using it, the lights turn off. This is a great gift for anyone who likes to play basketball at night. In fact, it could be used for other games like dodgeball. Great for parties as both a cool game to shoot hoops and a conversation piece. Makes shooting a hoop even more special.
