As far as ready made sport balls go, I would go with Canadian Lacrosse balls.
They are a good size and weight and bounce decently--for force bounce stuff
at the least.
I have also heard of some jugglers who found decent balls in the dog toy
section of the pet store.
For beginners, I would recommend penny filled tennis balls until you decide
you really do like juggling (we get used balls for free at the local tennis
center and you can recover your pennies if you decide juggling isn't your
thing); If you decide you are hooked on juggling, then invest in some
beanbags. They really are much more forgiving of mistakes than
balls. Consider buying at least 5 and probably 6 beanbags (six will allow
you to start basic passing with another person). As you juggle, remember
to rotate through the balls so they all wear evenly.
PS--The relatively inexpensive (compared to silicone) bounce balls that
Keith mentioned are called OddBalls. They work well until you try your
first silicone--then you are ruined and nothing else will do.
