These balls are a lot of fun! One thing my kids have used them for is pool toys. You just have to make sure you give them time to dry out in the sun in between using them or they will get stinky. It's not a big deal to rotate them because so many come in this set. The balls float so they don't end up surprising you when the pool vaccuum stops working all of a sudden only to find another dive toy stuck in it.
The kids also use them for a rapid fire style of dodge ball. The balls have just enough weight to get enough distance but are so soft they don't hurt anyone. So far the graphics have stayed on after a few weeks of usage. I know in the past some our other squishy foam balls have peeled pretty quickly. Great price, and great quality so far. I'm very happy to have another toy that will keep the kids off their video games and get them active.
