WHAT IS IT?
A mesh bag containing 100 soft plastic playballs. There are two sets, the pink one above and a set of the usual primary colour mix. These balls are for use in enclosed ball pit.
WHY BUY THESE?
They're cheaper than the identical Early Learning Centre balls and more easily available to me as I don't have an ELC nearby.
The pink set is unevenly split, with at least 2/3rds of the balls being the dark pink and the rest a mixture of baby pink and baby blue balls. I believe the ELC set contains a few silver balls but I don't miss those, my daughter loves the selection and refuses to mix them up with the other more standard set. There are more red balls than blue or yellow but this is usually the case and again isn't a problem for us.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD?
Yes! They don't bend or collapse under the weight of the children. They are made of very thin plastic but it's tough so the balls will bounce when thrown. One pack of 100 doesn't fill my average size ballpit so I have to persuade my daughter to mix the sets and then she has a deep layer to jump into. When the children have finished playing the balls fit nicely into the bag for storage, there's no struggling with the zip as the balls fit so perfectly that it's a smooth action to do the bag up when the last one goes in.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: As good as the more expensive Early Learning Centre balls
