Colleen Turner
Inclusive product

My daughter was given the sensory ball as a gift. She has difficulty with motor planning and has limited use of her hands and arms, and has cortical visual impairment. This ball has provided an opportunity for her to be included in an age old past time with her siblings and peers. The sides of the balls have areas where she can grip the ball and gain control prior to handing it off or throwing it to someone else. We had never seen a ball like this before. The colors are bright, it makes a crinkling sound when manipulated, it is easy to grasp, light weight and well built. We couldn't be more pleased with this ball. We would definitely recommend this product! Thank you so much Dr. Fox

Great sensory toy!

My grandniece loves playing with this ball! She can easily catch and throw it and is able to play along with her older brother!

Nice toy

Loved the toy for my daughter. There was a little hiccup with shipping but was quickly resolved.

Nicholas Timpone
Terrific for developmental fun

Fun and engaging while delivering valuable OT/PT therapies. The ball’s sensory elements have helped our 3yo son with some sensory adversions. It is light and fun to play with both in and out doors. Great toy for this looking to incorporate fun to needed therapies.

Daughter loves the crunch

 Purchased for my daughter who is almost a year old and we play with it on a daily basis. The colors are bright and vibrant. The yellow part makes a lound crunchy sounds which my daughter loves, perfect sensory material. It come separately, you have to insert the white ball inside the mesh material and then inflate. It is very easy to do and takes just a minute or two to put together. The only downside is if you have a very small space (like myself) you have to deflate to store it since it's a bit bigger than a soccer ball or basketball.
