"Ten years ago there had been lots of photographs full of what looked like a round, pink beach ball in lots of bobbly hats"
—Description of Dudley as a baby

A beach-ball is a Muggle ball made of plastic and inflated with air, meant to be light and easily bounced and tossed about from one person to another.

Dudley Dursley was compared to a beach ball when he was a young baby, due to his rotundness.

Harry Potter's birthday cake from Molly Weasley was said to be beach-ball sized.[1]
