Have a Ball!

This past Saturday it rained and rained and rained. Miss E and Little C created this crazy game with a ball and a child-size broom. I never really understood the gist of the game, but I did love listening to the giggles on such a gloomy day. It also reminded me that sometimes the simplest toy- the ball!- can provide endless laughter and entertainment. Here are some of Kobold Toy's favorite balls- perfect (and affordable!) birthday and holiday gifts:

For the baby/toddler, we love the Allegro stacking ball. This colorful and extra soft plush ball is perfect for grabbing, stacking and rolling. The ball can be separated into 4 pieces. We also love the Lilliputiens Musical Handles Ball. This ball is perfect for little hands. It emits 8 different sounds and is suitable for children from 6 months up. Lilliputiens also offers the pretty in pink Musical Humps Ball.

For the toddler and up interested in kicking, rolling, and creating crazy in-door ball games, Kobold offers the brightly colored balls by Tatiri. These balls are perfect for inside and outside play and come in fun designs. We especially like the cars, rockets and hearts patterns.

Now, I appreciate that not everyone would appreciate an indoor game with a real ball (hello, Mimsi!). For those who prefer a quieter ball experience (stocking alert!!), Kobold recommends the puzzle balls by Ravensburger. These perfectly crafted, curved puzzle pieces allow for an exact fit and are easily assembled together to form a solid, smooth ball - with no glue required! Kobold Toys offers the sports ball in the form of soccer, basketball and baseball. And for the holidays, we are offering the puzzle ball in seven beautiful patterns. The end result of one of these 60-piece puzzles is an unique decorative piece that can be displayed in your child's room or hung in the Christmas tree as an ornament.
Also, just a reminder that there are only a few days left to complete a product review on the site and be eligible for a $50 gift certificate towards your next purchase.
