The students loved the kick balls....They were a huge hit! Wish I would have bought more.

Great for prizes for games at Fall Festival
Were used for prizes at our Annual Fall Festival. The kids loved the selection of prizes this year.

Stuffing comes out too easily
The styrofoam balls that make up the stuffing for these comes out easily through the naturally occurring holes in the crocheted outer skins...bad idea for something that's supposed to be kicked around...

Kids were excited to receive item but disappointed when they quickly came apart. Small white styrofoam leaks out from knitting. Bad design.

Outside knitting is more durable than other hacky-sack balls. Inside beads were made of foam though. Not quite heavy enough to make them "awesome."

Quality looks good, but they are a little small. Will work fine as prizes for party games.

Excellent Choice - All kids love these!
I bought these for our prize bags to give out to each child at the end of our school carnival. We do one bag instead of individual prizes. The kids love them! I have bought hundreds of them and they have ALL been well made. They do not unravel, break, or cause a choking hazard! The children have even asked if they could have an extra for their siblings at home. Every age group likes to try and kick the ball to keep it in the air. Great choice!

Kick with care
They look great and kids love them, but be gentle with them, they fall apart easily.

My children were so excited when the package finally arrived but that excitement turned to disappointed when we opened the boxes of kick balls. They were all different sizes, some filled, some half filled, some round, oval or egg shaped. They seem filled with some kind of styrofoam. We were expecting beans of sand filling. The filling is omitted in the description buy I counted on Oriental Trading's reputation for quality. The croshet designs look very nice but the assembly is poor. I wish I didn't buy so many and pay all that shipping - it will cost me more to ship them back than what I paid for them.

Will Keep Them Entertained!
My plan is to use them as a activity on our Mission Sunday where we will be talking about Thailand who has a favorite sport where they only use hands and heads to play, much like a combination of volleyball and soccer!
