Glitter Bouncy Ball
Advantages: Pretty, cheap and good value
Disadvantages: Quite Heavy
When my daughter was younger I used to love anything for sensory play, and I spotted these at my local supermarket towards the end of the summer season.
They normally cost around £1.50 but I managed to pick a couple up for 25p as Tesco's were selling off their outdoor toys.
I have also spotted these in Asda and Home Bargains for £1.
The balls are recommended from 4 years and upwards, however we had ours from when Lauren was about 3 years old and never experienced any problems (although play was always supervised). I think this may be more to do with the weight of the ball, it is quite heavy and Lauren certainly struggles to throw this any sort of distance.
The balls are around 3 inches wide and filled with fluid and glitter. As you shake the ball, all the glitter spins round making it really pretty and stimulating to watch.
I do know someone who brought one for their dog however although the rubber is quite thick, within the first day the dog managed to pierce the rubber and the ball was rendered useless so I wouldn't recommend for pets.
Lauren loves these balls, we have a fluorescent blue and a bright pink glittered one, they are very hard wearing bounce quite well, even on carpet. Luckily we have concrete floors downstairs but I always know if she has sneaked one upstairs due to the 'thudding' noise it makes when she tries to bounce it!
As well as Lauren liking, my nephew also loves who is only 6 months old, although he doesn't play with it, he is mesmerised if I just shake the ball in front of his eyes.
I would recommend these balls and give 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
