Circles, Holes, Big Ball Action. Oball is smooth and shiny and indestructible. Kick it, Stomp it, Crush it, and Oball bounces right back to a perfectly formed sphere; it is amazingly fun and durable. Regular size is 4.5" in diameter. Ages 1+.
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 1 years of age.
My daycare children love it. This is the third oball I have bought. It is easy for my little ones to catch. They love the colors of all 3 oballs. It soft plastic so doesn't hurt if they get it thrown at them. We play with them in the house and have not broken any yet. I love them.
Review for Oball

I bought this for my grandchildren, ages 1 and 3. I think they'll both enjoy it and can safely play with it both indoors and outdoors. I'm hoping even the one-year-old will be able to catch the ball because of its squeezable design and openings she can grasp.
Oball is fun for all ages!

We actually purchased this as a baby gift, but we do have both an OBall and an OBall football in our house. They are fun for babies, but are also enjoyed by my 7 and 11 yr old and adults. We now use them as a pool ball and dive toy.
The benefit for babies is that they are easy for them to grasp, does not hurt if they hit themself in the face, safe for them to chew on, and easily cleaned. Also, great to clip onto a stroller or infant seat as a toy to bring along. I have also recently purchased a couple of the Oball rattles for baby gifts....same product just with a little rattling noise for babies.
Lightweight enough that they will not destroy anything if they are played with inside the house as well.
