It’s kind of like playing with a balloon that won’t pop. The ball is lightweight and built to take the spikes, tosses, and throws kids aim at it, and gently land wherever it’s aimed. That magic comes from a shock-absorbing inflatable (and re-inflatable) core wrapped inside a durable kite-like material shell. Kids starting to lose their mojo? They can take a break from playing and color the ball in with markers or crayons.
