Our Earth¿¿¿ Punch Balls
Better than reviews I read
I bought these for my son's 7th BDay party despite some of the reviews I read that were negative. I wanted them anyway because they went with the space, astronaut and earth theme. The lot I received was excellent and the print was not too light as noted in some of the reviews.

These punching balloons are GREAT! They were easy to inflate, were durable and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend this product! They were a great hit!!!

Do not buy this product
This was probably the worst purchase I've made through OTC. The balloons were rather pricey at about 50 cents each (adds up when buying alot). Worse, they were very poor quality. The continents were way too small when the balloon was inflated - it made it look like the earth is 95%+ water. The balloons also did not stay inflated - after about a dozen "punches" they opened and all the air blew out. We were planning on using them during our closing VBS skit, but had to scrap that idea and just hand them out as give-aways. Very disappointed.

The price is right
With 14 children in my nursery I don't want to spend a lot of money. This product fits the bill perfectly. I used it last year and the kids loved it so why not stay with a winner.

The quality of these punch balls is pretty good. They held air and I didn't have any with holes in them. The print is a little light after they are blown up, but overall the kids really liked them.

Great Classic Goody Bag Gift
These punch balls are much better quality than the ones I've found locally. The world/globe tied in to my son's airplane party. The kids loved them.

Earth Punch Balls
These were great. Used them in VBS. Made a mobile under the earth ball with Sun and moon and stars for Creation craft.

These were used for an event that included a "World" type theme. Product was recommended by on line chat Oriental Trading assistant. Didn't use as punch balls (until later) but hung from Chandeliers. Nice enough. Agree that the printing is way to light. Some lost air during the luncheon. Deeper printing would improve product significantly and they are actually fun to punch around later. I suppose they would keep kids happy for some time.

OK, I was desperate, but not THIS desperate. For last summer's Global Awareness camp, I purchased Earth beach balls (no longer in stock, boo) which were fantastic-- they were pretty accurate, bright, and useful for teaching continents, oceans, even details of countries. Everything was to scale and it was a great bargain.
These punch balls are just that--balls or balloons. The print on them is ridiculous--the continents are so out of scale and misproportioned, as are the few labels. No Antarctica. What's the use of having anything printed on them when it's so inaccurate? At about 50 cents per, not worth shipping it back, but I now have to write a note to parents explaining these are indeed just toys and in no way representations of earth.

not like the ones from my childhood
These are not punch balls, but balloons with a rubber band. I blew one up and it popped. I bought 3 dozen to sell at a fair.Very dissapointing.
