I picked these up not paying much attention to the actual size of them. I assumed mini meant mini, not just smaller than regulation sized basketballs. I completely looked past the 7.5" listed in the title! They are slightly smaller, but not by much. But they are also not basketball types of balls at all. They are basketball themed with the striping, but are more like the bouncey balls you see in elementary schools or kickballs. But despite all of that, they are still nice little bouncey balls that my 4 year old has had a blast playing with. There are six different bright colored balls in the set that come deflated. The set includes a hand pump that is a bit cheapy but still works well to inflate them. It takes a little effort to pump them up since it is a manual pump and isn't top quality, but it is easy enough to use. The balls seem durable and thick walled. So far I haven't had any of them pop, despite being bounced, rolled, hit, kicked, stepped on, sat on, etc. by a 4 year old and her older brothers. They have good bounce to them and are super light weight. Overall not a bad set, but definitely not what I was expecting from them based on simply reading the item description.
