What our experts think
Our testers were thrilled by the prospect of indoor ball play. They were eager to inflate the Ollyball with the included straw and intuitively started to throw, tap, kick, and catch the ball. The children were further intrigued by the opportunity to color-in and personalize their ball. The coloring-book type graphics on the ball captured their attention and provided several hours of fun as they carefully chose their colors. Older children were meticulous about their artistry.
Children intuitively used familiar ball play to create their own personalised, indoor games with family and friends. Their play was energetic when they were in pairs or larger groups. While playing with the Ollyball, children 4-to-6-years old, build and hone fine motor/perceptual skills for colouring and develop eye-hand coordination skills and early cause effect processing.
