Phlat Ball's unique hinged panel design, along with its innovative time-delay mechanism, allows the toy to be easily compressed and thrown as a disc, then 'magically' pop into a ball in flight! Ideal for indoor and outdoor fun as well as water play.
Phlat Ball Jr. offers a soft plastic exterior. Its smaller size allows for quick flings and one-handed catches! Phlat Ball Jr. measures 14 cm across as a disc and transforms to become a 8.8 cm diameter ball. Assorted colours. Sold individually.
This was my daughters ball so we have had it for quite a while. She has had lots of fun with it using it to play a game like frisbee and then the ball pops back into a ball mid air ready for the next person to catch. It is also really cool to skim along the top of the swimming pool and then watch it pop back up. It really has that cool factor for playing ball games with as it is not your average ball.
Well recently my son found this ball in his sisters room and has been obsessed with it ever since. He is only one and he likes to flatten the ball out and then watch it pop back up again. He will literally be in hysterics every time it pops back up and it is hillarious to watch as every time he gets a little fright and jumps before the laughter begins. The ball keeps him entertained for ages and is a real big hit so a great toy for toddlers as well as older children.
I have found it completely safe for him to use as even it pops back up with his fingers inside any of the little crack it doesn't pinch down tightly on the skin and the edges are really soft. So appropriate for all ages in my opinion as it is so much fun. The mechanism that helps it spring back up and the plastic hinges are extremely robust as this ball is about 6 years old and really well used and is still going strong. Highly recommend them for a fun family ball game for the whole family.
