It's the original Hoberman toy and its now a classic and a favorite of kids and adults everywhere. It expands from 9" to 30" in diameter with a magical motion that amazes everyone that sees it. Everyone in the house should have their own, because nobody will want to share. All Spheres comes with a pulley, hardware and instructions to hang as a cool, kinetic mobile; an educational booklet about the geometry of the Sphere; and a 21 Cool Things to Do activity sheet.
The Sphere expands and contracts with a magical motion using a combinationa of geometry, engineering, and beauty. This can be thrown, bounced, kicked, spinned, rolled or suspended from the ceiling. This amazing toy is a tool for teaching and an object of art that is both educational and fun. Hoberman uses technology and unique designs to inspire children to be creative and inventive.
Ages 4 and up.

"We like this toy for the intrigue it provides our students. It fosters group interaction. The larger one we had accommodated two children inside at the same time. This one is too small for two children to be inside at the same time. We also like the locking mechanism, as kids can work together to set it up and take it down."
We are in the midst of a full and busy holiday season, so our 5-yo son has gotten lots of new toys. He's been thrilled with so many of them, including the Hoberman Sphere. He bounced back and forth playing with it and other things today, each time trying a new move or creating a new game for it. We haven't even begun to explore the list of 21 things you can do with your sphere--did just a couple and they were really fun, even for the little guy whose arms can barely spin the sphere at its fullest extension. Highly recommended!
Alas, neither we nor you... [nor Mr. Hoberman for that matter] are impressed by random Hoberman sphere parts. Fortunately, we know how impressive the sphere is in full, fine form. We provided our customer information on receiving a replacement. Please visit our Returns & Exchanges center for details.
Perfect gift for those that have everything

First off, the ball seems well made and durable. I bought this item after wracking my brain of what to get my youngest son. After eight years of buying well-made, high-quality toys, my two sons seem to have everything! I remember that our friends had a Hoberman Sphere when we last visited them and all the kids loved it--it was in almost constant motion for the entire weekend visit.
When my son opened the package, both him (4 years) and his brother (8 years) got excited. Within two hours, they had used it in over 5 different ways (helmet, throwing it to each other, stepping inside and walking around, etc.). It is a great, simple toy that keeps all ages captivated.
