This glitter ball made our pool party awesome. It looks great in the sun. There really is a big handful of glitter inside. When the ball is just floating all the glitter does fall to the bottom and it just looks like a clear ball. It looks best when tossed around in the sun. The ball has held up perfectly. I may just squeeze in some glue and shake it around. The glitter will stick to the inside walls then and shine while floating.
