The unique shape of this ball provides the child with added stability for balance, exercise and vestibular therapy. And fun! We do mean fun!
The width of each ball measures approximately 22 inches in diameter and 43 inches in length.
How to determine which peanut ball size is appropriate for your child:
Have your child stand with arms outstretched from their sides.
Measure the distance from one fingertip across to another fingertip.
The ball closest in size to this distance will allow your child a wide range of uses - holding, or sitting on the ball with feet flat on the floor.
Children younger than age 3 should be supervised in using this ball. Holds up to 750 pounds.
The age recommendation of ages 3+ is due to the presence of small parts at the point where the ball inflates
Please Note: Due to its very large size - this Peanut Ball is shipped uninflated. To inflate, use a simple ball pump or the Foot Air Pump sold separately. A more expensive pump will inflate the ball at a quicker pace.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"My son loves to bounce, so he is able to sit on it easier than a regular exercise ball. He can also lay on his tummy and roll back and forth, which he finds calming."
Our 10 year old with Autism loved the Peanut ball-it was big enough for him-we had trouble inflating it and it doesnt seem to hold the air as well as I would like. Overall a great buy for sensory seekers though and my 5 year old loves it too!
