ELC Pink Foam Football
Advantages: Soft, bouncy, can be played with indoors
Disadvantages: Gets grubby easily, could be a choking hazard
For easter we don't like to buy our girls chocolate as they get so much from everyone else and so we buy them a little present each instead, my eldest daughter loves playing with balls in the garden and her younger sister had started to take an interest finding her kicking a ball very funny so we decided to buy her a foam one so she wouldn't hurt herself with it and it would be safe for use in the house.
We bought the ball from the Early Learning Centre where you can buy it in pink or blue, the ball cost us £5 and it is advised for children aged 3 years and upover however our youngest isn't even 2 yet and she enjoys playing with it.
The ball is made of foam as the name would suggest and although it does compress down like you would think foam would it is pretty tough foam, the ball is pale pink in colour and then has darker pink pentagon shapes on it. My eldest daughter was pleased with the ball as she loves pink and when we first gave my younger daughter it she did try and eat it.
My girls play well together with the ball and there have been no injuries from play which is great, my elder daughter will roll it for her sister to chase which they both find very funny and my youngest tries to throw the ball although at the moment it doesn't get very far as she near enough drops it rather than actually throwing it.
The ball has got a little grubby as my eldest decided to take it out in the garden not realising that it was only for playing with in the house so I wouldn't advise the ball is used for outdoor play or it won't stay pink for long. We only let the girls play with the ball whilst they are supervised as a young child could quite easily bite a chunk out of it and choke however apart from the initial attempt to bite the ball my youngest hasn't bothered since so I find this ball is perfect for her to play with under supervision.
I think the ball is a good toy and it is teaching my little girl things like rolling and kicking although an older child may be strong enough to cause damage in the house with it as the ball is pretty tough but with my little girls being so young it is a good indoor toy. The ball has the initial bite mark in it and is a little grubby but it is in perfect working order and for £5 I am pleased with my purchase.
Summary: A good starter ball just keep an eye on little ones
