ELC Blue Foam Football
Advantages: Soft and lightweight, won't damage windows or ornaments in the house
Disadvantages: Too soft and lightweight for a proper kick around
I am a big fan of the early learning centre and their toys. When my children were younger I bought the majority of their toys from there. Although they are now probably a little old for most of the toys that ELC sell there are still a few that my son especially still plays with.
The foam football is kept in our garden throughout the year and it makes a decent ball for him to play with. It isn't a proper football by any means and is made with foam so is too light for a proper kick about but it is the ball I prefer he uses when he is playing in the back as I am less scared he is going to smash my windows which could happen with a harder football.
The foam ball cost me around about £5 which I think was good value for money. The majority of things that I have bought from ELC have been fantastic quality and even toys which I bought for my eldest daughter have lasted years and this ball is no exception. Even though it is made from foam it has only a few slight tears to it which isn't bad considering just how boisterous my son can be with his toys.
The ball makes a great lightweight ball for young kids and it also makes a good play ball for older kids. We have used it loads of places from the beach to the local park. It is so lightweight that it also makes a good ball for games such as dodgeball as there is no fear that someone is going to end up getting hurt by getting hit with this ball. It also helps save your ornaments if it gets thrown in the house.
All in all this is a great and inexpensive ball from ELC and one that I have no complaints with. If you buy it as an all-around ball for kids to throw and play with and not buy it expecting it to be as heavy and solid as a football then I think you will be pleased with it too.
Summary: A much safer ball for your windows
