Light-Up Suction Cup Balls
Big hit at a hall party
These were a big hit as favors to play with at my husbands birthday party which had a lazer tag theme. They complimented the swizzle glow necklaces & light-up shot-glasses to go with the theme. Worth the money.
The kids had a lot of fun throwing them at the windows in the hall we rented. It kept them busy interacting with one another, having throwing contest for quite some time --- long enough for mommies to get dessert!

Fun for the kids
Got these as part of our Halloween Party. The kids loved them! They stick a little too well to my whiteboard, though.

Old, all died
I bought a dozen. Only 3 worked. You sent another dozen. Free! Thank you. Only 4 worked and they quickly died. The end.

Great fun, good value, but...
We had a similar ball from another company, and loved it. So, we were thrilled to find these at such a great price, since we knew they'd make fun party favors.
Unfortunately, about half did not light-up. BUT, after reading other reviews touting the amazing customer service, we were happy to have a wonderful experience of our own.
Customer service rushed out replacements, with time to spare before the party. It was fast, convenient, and painless. If we weren't already loyal customers, this would alone might have won us over.
Ultimately, it all worked out and the balls were a big hit at our daughter's party. Just remember to leave time for exchanges, or order extra to account for the duds. It's worth the trouble to pick-out the winners.
These are wonderfully tactile, fun to fidget with, throw, or stick to glass, and our three-year-old daughter just loves to smash them into things to watch them light-up and flash.

Out of 2 boxes (24 suction cup balls), only 8 lit up, which was the main reason I bought them for a childs party.

Kids loved them
I bought these to go in my sons goodie bags. The kids LOVED them. All of them lit up and mostly stuck to smooth surfaces. I was a little put off by the price, but it worked out fine. I would reccommend these.

It helps to get these a little bit wet periodically (not after every throw) and they worked great. Keep in mind when you throw the ball underhand, the spin of the ball works the best. Throwing it like a baseball puts the wrong spin on the ball to suction to the glass. But, an underhand spin works well. Which is perfect for most children.

Not that bad
Despite the bad reviews on this product the ones I had purchased for a carnival were just fine. They were very sticky and lit up well. They were a hit with the kids.

Waste of $$
I ordered these to put in party favor bags recently, and almost half of them didn't even light up. HOWEVER, when I called Oriental Trading to return them, I was issued a credit on the spot and was told to just dispose of them. So while I was short a cool party favor, I was not out any money thanks to the very customer-oriented customer service of OTC. Impressive!
