Balls are objects in Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+ that appear in the player's town. They can be kicked by the player if walked into. There are three types of balls: a soccer ball, basketball, and volleyball. If a ball is kicked into a body of water, it cannot be retrieved and will disappear if the player enters a building. If a ball is kicked into a hole, it will fall in, and it can be retrieved if hit with a shovel. Balls cannot initially appear in acres that contain the player houses, Tom Nook's store, the train station, the lake, or the museum.
Villagers may ask the player to bring them a ball if they ask for work. In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Dung Beetles push balls around; if donated to the museum, the Dung Beetle will push around a ball in the bug exhibit.
