The kit comes with a Crayola Color of Kindness Youth Basketball as well as a Green Crayola 12-inch Single Action Pump. The ball has a performance rubber outdoor cover, so it’s able to handle play inside and outside. The youth size, a little more than 27 inches, makes it perfect for young players learning the game.

That’s not all this collab is bringing. Spalding is also hosting the Doodles to Dribbles Contest. Kids can download a coloring page that invites them to design their own basketball for a chance to see it brought to life! Interested artists can get started on the official contest webpage. The contest will close this Dec. 15.

Little ballers can hit the court with a colorful twist on their favorite sport thanks to this new kit from Spalding. The Spalding x Crayola Holiday Kit is available now at the Spalding online store and makes a perfect Christmas present for lovers of all things b-ball.


This holiday kit collaboration between Spalding and Crayola comes with a Crayola Color of Kindness Youth Basketball and a Green Crayola 12-inch Single Action Pump, everything kids need to start playing. The basketball is youth-size for little sports stars.
