Ramps for kids, snacks, music and videos but most are GIANT!
Do you need any balls to bowl? NO! You need bowling balls to bowl. For starters, all balls are 27 inches round. There are also house balls that you own. Mostly in bowling centers they have bowling balls. Holes are drilled to fit most people's fingers. Holes are smaller for small people. Make sure your fingers fit comfortably, not too loose, not too tight. There are different weights for different people. Kids would use 6 to 8 pounds; big adults have bowling balls 14 to16 pounds.
