I have bought a lot of different items from Oriental Trading throught the years and the Stretch Balls are of excellent quality. I took some on vacation with me and handed them out. I use mine all the time.

The other reviews say it's a terrible product, some say it's ok, I guess it really depends on your pack of the strech balls.
Mine were great and they were just how I expected them to be, stretchy, and fun. They are good both for adults and kids. But in honest truth, there is no point in calling them stretch balls if you can't stretch them!! They are sqeeze balls, so if you want something to squish, this is what you are looking for, this is not something you want to stretch, they will tear, or break or something will happen. The price is way too high but in the end, they are very fun. So I guess when you buy these, it's a risk of $20, they will either be a waste of money, (according to the other reviews) or great and satisfying. You can make the choice but I'd reccomend them.

Such a bummer!!
I was so looking forward to getting these. A friend of mine had one and I couldn't leave it alone, so I ordered my own. Over half of the order I received are too hard to manipulate at all. The packaging was very greasy so I'm assuming that they dried out. At least I've got about 4 that are super squishy like they should be, but thats only 1/3 of my order. That makes the price per piece astronomically high.

would not recomend
I bought these for adults, I couldn't get mine to stretch, they are very hard to squeeze as well, my mother and grandmother will not be able to use these. Mine has already come un-plugged, I got them yesterday. The inside is a white clay like stuff, that was suprisingly dirty.

Even for the low price, the quality was very poor. I ordered these for an office relaxation party... I couldn't bring myself to actually pass them out to people.

Really great product!
I bought this product because it was similar to a give-a-way my son's school was having. It was a great purchase! I work with students with Autism and it is a great sensory item for them. It has also been great for my kids to use when they are upset with each other. They are very durable as well!

Worst Purchase Ever
These balls fell apart within the first week of having them. Worst purchase ever!

They worked great for my purposes. I don't know how well they'll hold up over time but I gave them to adults who thought they were great and a lot of fun. My kids found one and had tons of fun playing with it as well.

They are very smelly and they don't last long with kids.

Does not hold up
I use relaxation toys in my therapy office. The consistency of this product changed drastically over a few months time. They shrunk and lost the stretchiness.
