The Truth's Thoughts:
I think this a really cool idea and very different. I can see me doing this all time for little kids birthday's because, I know they would all love them. I have 7 nephews so I know they would have a good time and make it even better that they will be personalized with their name on them. If you would like to put a personal touch to a gift for a birthday, Easter, Christmas, or just to be nice one day. Check out Send A Ball and I am sure you will be able to send them a card they will never forget. And also something they will be able to love more because it is all personalized with your own words.

is a family business headquartered in Chicago. It is owned by a couple of BALLSY sisters who live across the street from each other in the same northwestside Chicago neighborhood they grew up in. They have been sending balls since the 90s, but one day in 2003, it seemed this CRAZY idea was meant to be a BUSINESS.
Michele tells it like this:
How did it start? I come from the direct mail world, so I knew the mailing rules. I made a practice of sending silly things in the mail over the years. One day I was in Osco, saw a BIN of bouncy balls, grabbed one and thought "I can mail this". Took a sharpie, addressed it to my BFF Sharon, wrote "Have BALL with your new baby", went to the post office and mailed it. Sharon loved it so much, my sister and i sent them again and again to other friends. A few years later while standing in line at the post office, a guy behind me asked about the balls and asked if I could send one for him. Initially I instructed him in the steps to do it himself, but by the time we got to the front of the line, he had given me the info and $5. Laughing, I called my sister and told her how funny that just was. She said, " MICH, I THINK WE ARE ONTO SOMETHING".
