I was recently contacted by HearthSong about reviewing one of their products on Life With Two Boys. Since my boys love to play outside, like most kids do, I decided I wanted to get them something new and exciting to play with before it gets too cold out.. That's when I discovered the Great Big Outdoor Playball!
The Great Big Outdoor Playball is part of HearthSong's active line. It's a 52" inflatable ball that kids can climb inside of. Along with the Great Big Outdoor Playball, HearthSong also offers a 65" Incred-A-Ball as well as the 36" GBOP Jr that's great for dodgeball.
When our Great Big Outdoor Playball arrived I really couldn't believe how big it was! I used an electric air pump to blow it up which was a bit of a pain because each individual section needs to be blown up separately causing it to take about 45 minutes to blow it up. I blew it up inside, not really thinking it was going to be so big, and I had a heck of a time trying to get it out the front door... But it was all worth it in the end!At first Brayden and Trevor were a little hesitant about climbing inside, they thought they were going to get stuck.. But when they finally went in, they were in it for hours! The ball is very durable, it's been rolled all around the yard and climbed in and on by both my boys and it's still holding up very well!
The Great big Outdoor Playball can be purchased on HearthSong.com for $59.98 or you can purchase the GBOP Jr. for $29.98. In my opinion, the Great Big Outdoor Playball is worth every penny and it's going to be a hit with my boys for quite some time!! Christmas is right around the corner and I don't know a single kid who wouldn't like to wake up to this under the tree.
