      A great play ball

      My little boy is football mad at the moment while shopping in tesco we came across this ball and as soon as he seen it he asked if he could have it at a reasonable £3 I decided to buy it. He often watches postman pat and so when he seen it he started shouting pat straight away.

      The ball is brightly coloured and has a picture of the main character Pat and jess smiling nicely on it on the back and the front of the ball. The rest of the ball is a plain yet bright red in colour and has the postman pat logo printed inbetween the two pictures. As far as I know there is just the one image available on the different balls however they are available in different colours.

      The ball is 9" and perfect for my 4 year old boys hands its not too big and at the same time it is a good size so it can be easily found if it rolls away. Also My 1 year old son loves to get on his feet and chase after the ball and the bright colours encourage him to keep trying. My daughter loves to bounce the ball on the wall over and over again so each child at different ages get good use out of it on their own but can also play together with it. They all play catch and football with it and its a good size for them all to get on well with.

      We have had the ball for about 2 years and it has had allot of use both indoor and outdoors. Its soft enough not to hurt a child if it accidentally hits them while playing games . The size of the ball makes it useful for many different games and different age groups and lasting all this time without a scratch I think is brilliant. The ball is hard wearing and has had many bumps and scrapes and managed to survive them all.

      Its a fun bright way to get a child up and being active which for me is always a big plus I would recommend this ball to anyone it is not bank breaking and as the ball is bright and fun it is great for all children.

      My review

      We have many balls kicking around the garden mostly belonging to our dogs of coarse. My girls have never shown any interest in play balls apart from the small plastic ones they have in the ball ball. A few weeks ago we were doing our weekly food shop in tesco and a huge netted stand at the end of the isle was packed full of mookie playballs with loads of children's favourite characters of coarse this attracted my children instantly. I did let the girls choose one ball each, one barbie and one postman pat ball landed in the trolley.

      Mookie postman pat balls cost around £1.99 from tesco also seen them in instore and b&m stores. Mookie playballs come in many different characters to suit every childs taste from disney cars, tinkerbell, barbie, disney princess, thomas the tank to name a few.

      Postman pat mookie ball is a fair size being 23cm in diameter making it quite big. The ball is lightweight which is perfect for little children. The postman pat ball is very colourful and the art work is lovely with big bright clear pictures of jess the cat and postman pat on one side and his red van on the other both side have the yellow postman pat logo.
      The balls are filled with air making the solid and not squishy.

      After my watching my girls playing with the balls i noticed how clumsy they both look and unable to catch the ball etc. I started playing with the ball teaching them how to catch and throw properly as well as kicking. I must say over the last few days their gross motor skills have really improved. Children can learn a lot from a simple ball even more encouraging with a favourite cartoon character on it.

      Mookie postman pat ball is easy for little children to work with, being lightweight it doesn't hurt if the ball hits me or them but makes it easy for the children to work with. I would recommend a mookie lightweight ball for a young childs first big ball.

      The only problem with the mookie ball being lightweight is on windy days its hard to control the ball and we took it on the beach yesterday and it got blown around so much i thought it was a goner.

      The ball is pretty durable too tested by our dogs big paws and nails as well as being thrown against a rough cast wall.

      All in i think the ball is very reasonably priced, looks nice and fun for the children with the the teaching of gross motor skills too making it educational.

      Mookie postman pat playball, recommended.

      Teach those little ones to play football!

      My daughter has gone through many phases of her favourite TV characters and one of her more resent ones was postman pat. We were walking though our local discount store when my daughter came across this postman pat ball. She immediately started playing with it and we thought we would get it as it only cost £1.99 and it would save a tantrum in the middle of the shop if we tried to take it off her.

      The ball is your typical flyaway, mine was a red one with postman pat and jess on the front but they also come in blue. It's very light weight which can cause some problems, possibly with your neighbours! But it was an ideal weight for my daughter to be able to carry it around with ease. The size of the ball is approximately 23cm. It was quite large for my two year olds little hands but it was the perfect size for daddy to kick it around the garden.

      Due to it being light weight it is suitable to use inside and outside of the house. It gives you the peace of mind knowing nothing will smash whilst playing indoors. If you do use the ball inside the house however, it would be advisable to remind your children only to use the light balls as a big football would be likely to cause a lot of damage!

      The ball is very bouncy and it's not to slippery so little ones can hold onto easily. My daughter loved playing catch with this ball as well as trying to play football with her daddy!

      My daughter loved playing with this ball she especially liked the fact it had postman pat on, she would roll it down the slide calling it postman pat. Unfortunately our dog let his playful side get the better of him and popped the ball. With my daughter being devastated we went to get her a new one straight away but this time she wanted a peppa pig ball not the postman pat one.

      Before the dog got his way with the ball it lasted for a month and was in very good condition however not being a very good kicker my daughter didn't treat it roughly. I would be confident that it would have lasted a long time; unfortunately the dog also popped the peppa pig ball after the same amount of time so I couldn't say we have had one of these balls for over a month. However mookie is a very reliable brand so I'm sure they should last a long time as the quality seems good.

      I would definitely recommend this ball, its perfect for postman pat fans.

        Recently my daughter has gained an interest in playing with a ball, and as the only ones that she had to play with were my brothers hard footballs I thought it was time to get her one of her own. In my local discount store they were selling small character balls so after having a quick look through the designs she chose the Postman Pat ball.

        The ball is bright red (although I think it also comes in blue) and has a bright picture of a very smiley Postman Pat and his cute little cat Jess. Postman Pat is waving on the picture too. Next to the picture of Pat and Jess is the Postman Pat logo in yellow letters. The ball is made by Mookie and is made out of a soft vinyl and are extremely light but at the same time they are quite durable. The size of the ball I purchased is 15cm diameter but they also come in 23cm size.

        The balls are recommended for children aged three years + but with adult supervision there is no reason that a younger child would be unable to play with it. My daughter is two and has great fun playing with it.

        There are many games you can play with a Mookie ball, we play football, teaching my daughter to catch, skittles and bouncing. I think playing games with a ball is a great way of keeping my daughter fit (and me too!!) but also develops hand/eye co-ordination when playing catch, and physical skills when playing football. Of course there is the social aspect too, learning to share and let others have a turn which is something that is very important for children to learn.

        My daughter just loves playing ball, we quite often take this ball to the park to play as we don't have a garden at home and I don't feel overly safe playing football in the backyard while she is small.

        I bought the ball for just a pound, and I haven't seen them anywhere else for sale, although the bigger balls are available on Amazon for around £6.00 (you may get one cheaper if you shop around). I would recommend these balls as they are cute, good quality and fun!

        Thank you for reading my review :)
