What our experts think
The Activity Ball provides lots of opportunities for sensory exploration, encouraging baby to discover and learn through texture, colour and sound. Our little testers loved the bright eye catching colours, and particularly the sound of the crackling inserts in the leaves on the flower and butterfly wings. As baby explores different textures and sounds, they learn early cause and effect (e.g. I squeeze the wing and it squeaks).
Older testers loved to roll and kick the ball, which is great for strengthening their core stability and developing the big muscles in their legs and arms, as well as the little muscles in their hands and fingers as they explore the different features. The ribbon tags were a little short for our younger testers to grip and pull, however they enjoyed feeling the texture of them.
