Choosing a fun kids bowling ball just got easier! First thing to determine is the weight your child will need. Bowling balls start at 6 pounds and go all the way up to 16 pounds. Most small children will be in the 6 to 8 pound range. While older kids will be in the 10 to 16 pound range.
Now you will need to decide your price range. Are you looking for a cheaper bowling ball to get started or a ball that may cost a little more but has a great design? If your child is just starting out then you will probably want to go with a plastic bowling ball. Once your child gets passed the beginner stage then you can advance to a mid range ball then onto a high performance ball.
Here are some of the best options for fun beginning bowling balls.

Great selection of kids bowling balls! My favorite is the Hello Kitty bowling ball.
Looking for a bowling ball for my 5 year old son that is just starting out. I have heard that I should purchase a plastic ball. Is this correct? If so, what would you recommend? I know there are a lot of kids bowling balls on the market but which is the best?
A plastic bowling ball would be a great ball to start with for your son. You can go with a Brunswick T Zone or a Ebonite Maxim. If you are looking for something a bit fun then you can go with something in the Viz A Ball bowling line which would be something like the smiley bowling ball. I hope this helps if you have any other questions on kids bowling balls let me know!
I really like the smiley face bowling ball – would this ball be appropriate for a youth bowler? She is just starting out and this would be her first bowling ball.
The smiley face bowling ball would be a great starter ball for a youth bowler.
