The Playballs comes in strong plastic bag. The bag we have at home has a blue edge to it and blue zip so you can close the bag and stop them from falling out. In the bag you get 100 coloured plastic balls in a range of different colours including red, green, blue and yellow. You can also purchase a set of girly coloured balls which includes pinks and purples. As these were for my nephew we wanted the balls with the red, green, blue and yellow in so this is the coloured pack we purchased. The balls cost £10 which we didn't think was bad value for a bag of 100 coloured balls. As the balls are made of plastic it means they can be used in a small pool, ball pit or can just be used to play in general.
Using the Playballs
= = = = = = = = = =
We have used the balls for a number of different things when playing with my nephew. In the summer we fill up a small paddling pool with some water and put the balls in the pool. The balls float and my nephew loves being in the small pool with the water and the coloured balls floating around on the water. As the balls are brightly coloured it makes the pool look really colourful and he loves picking up the different colours and throwing them out of the pool as we play with him and throw them back in again. We have also put the balls in the pool withouth any water. As the paddling ball is very small we have had it in the lounge and filled it up with balls. My nephew can then climb in and out of the pool when he likes fully clothed. He loves going into the pool and trying to hide in amongest the brightly coloured balls. We have also used the balls to have a play fight with other members of the family. Some of us will go over one side of the room and others go over the other side and we will throw as many balls as we can at each other. My nephew loves joining in with this and he finds it very funny. He also likes to hold the bag and help to put the balls back into the bag again afterwards. Some of the balls are quite thin and they do sometimes dent a little and my nephew has managed to bite a small hole in 1 or 2 so they have had to been thrown away as they started to flatten a little. We have had the balls for at least 2 years, where my older nephew first had them. Although there isn't as many balls as there was when we first purchased them there is still a good amount of them and the colours still look really bright and colourful. I think the bright colours of the balls attracts younger children to them due to how colourful they all look when they are put into a small padlling pool or ball pit.

I think the balls are of reasonable value and are a great item for your children to play with as they can be used in many different ways. The balls are long lasting and will last you a good few years and longer so you will certainly get your money's worth from them before your chlild grows out of them. I think other places such as Toys R Us and Argos sell packs of these balls during the summer season, how-ever I'm not sure on the price difference between other retailers and Early Learning Centre. I'm taking one star off this product due to the fact that some of the balls are quite thin and tend to dent quite easily and don't go back into shape, this is only for a few of them though. My nephew sometimes manages to bite a small hole in the ball so it deflates slightly and then this has to be thrown away. I would highly recommend these to others and I think girls would love the pink/purple coloured balls.
