Bouncing Ball Assortment
We are using these as prizes for our sons carnival/fair theme birthday. The quantity and quality are great for the price.

Staple every year
I use these bouncy balls at the end of every school year as a reward for my listening program. Kids always love bouncy balls and they are thrilled that they get to keep them (even at a private school!) I introduce 5 composers each year with 4 or 5 selections from each. Then close to the end of the year, we play Name That Tune. If they name the composer and title correctly, they get a bouncy ball. It gives them an incentive to listen carefully during the school year knowing that they have to learn the pieces. This is the only reward I give them during the year and they love it. Buying in bulk is the only way I can afford it, as I always buy them with my own money. Thanks Oriental Trading!

Although they appear to be of decent quality, I was very shocked to see that the balls were of 4 varying sizes! If I wanted a variety of SIZES, I would have ordered a variety of sizes. I use these as Carnival Prizes. I dont see how I can put the same "Value" on the various size balls. Some of them are as small as a marble?! My kids earn tickets playing the games and turn in their tickets for prizes. I wont even be able to use all the balls so therefore I wont have 50 useable pieces.

Not what was advertised
I have purchased this item for several years and was happy with the assortment. This time, however, there were many balls smaller than 1-1/2" as was advertised and not all were the round regular bouncing ball. With so many being smaller than 1-1/2", children younger than 3 years old cannot receive them. Disappointed.

Balls are always a good prize for any age

Very nice quality. Larger than most "super balls", so less of a choking hazard. For those reviewers who say that some are not round...they aren't supposed to be. The ones that are not round are supposed to look like rocks (see the other product that oriental trading sells). We are giving these out as Valentine's with "Valentine, have a ball today!" on them (we used the cute little cellophane heart bags from here, too).

Bouncing off the Walls
My students love the bouncing balls assortment bag. There are a variety of colorful, bouncy balls to choose from and all of them bounce with great height and vigor.

if you don't need 48 its a good buy
I think I received 6 (maybe more) balls that had, well, no outside. I now know what the inside of these balls looks like.
The ones that were COMPLETE were fine, but if you need 48 I would NOT recommend you buy these. If you need 3 dozen you are probably safe.

I got these bouncing balls for gift bags at my kids birthday, good colors for boys and girls, about 12 balls were no good, not round, and not bounce at all, but most are ok.
