Soft and squishy with a fun bell inside for the little ones...
My gorgeous little cousin :)
And fun for practicing kicking and throwing for the older ones - and as they are quite soft, you'd need to throw it really hard to break something, so they are great for fun play inside the house :)
There are a heap of tutes out there for balls like this, but, for what it's worth, this is the one I used. I did the medium size (was feeling indecisive!). Next time I'd go the large, or possibly even bigger again, especially for 2 and 3 year olds.
