To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In my classes opinion, this stability ball was excellent for our class. It has lasted but there are some things that could be better. Read more to find out why.
One reason we like the ball is it does not roll away like other balls. Some of the other types of balls you could buy roll around. This one is better because it it’s stable all of the time.
While we love how it stays in place, we don’t think it has lasted that well. It has not popped, but we are worried an out of control student might pop it. Make sure your class is in control and knows the flexible seating rules to avoid popping. Also, the yellow color has gotten kind of dirty. It is not as beautiful as it once was. We recommend keeping dirt and markers away.
The last thing we like about this ball is it helps us to focus. It is very comfortable and makes you focus on your work.
We recommend you buy this ball for your classroom. However, we suggest you pick a darker color than yellow. This will hide the dirt. We hope you enjoy the balance ball. We do too!
I purchased two yellow balance balls for my kiddos. I thought these would be perfect for sensory input, while also working on occupational therapy goals. Unfortunately, the balance balls are different sizes and much smaller than advertised. More than likely, I will gift them to a family with a 3-5 year old since they're already blown up.
I bought this for flexible seats in my classroom. Kids love it. It’s a good privilege reward for young students. We had been using it for a year & almost everyday in school like all day long and it’s still working great. Very durable. Absolutely great product.
Since the kids are home ‘distance learning’ I noticed that my little one can’t stay still. I was browsing trying to find answers to my problems (it happens a lot) and saw this and since I was already looking for kids stool I thought why not. Since it arrived and was inflated she hasn’t stopped bouncing! She bounces everywhere! Shockingly not while on zoom for instruction anymore so it’s great! She turns it upside down to bounce around the house and uses the legs as handles.
So I ordered my ball as a birthing ball and wanted the stability so I wouldn't fall off. I got it and blew it up and noticed it was MUCH smaller than I expected it to be and I'm only 5'0" tall. When I sit on it the legs just fold under themselves and I'm basically level with the floor (and that's completely blown up) I will see if I can return it as I don't have use or give it to my 4 year old as he's more of it's size.
My students like to have the choice of alternate seating. These yoga balls are perfect for my smaller kids. I have even used them for my son (5 years old) to do some exercises on to strengthen his trunk and core.
