2014 Award
The Amazing Wubble Bubble Ball
(wubble-ball.com $19.99 Score:)

Our testers were thrilled with the soft, light-weight Wubble Bubble ball that inflates to an amazing 3-foot size and still has some give. Fun to bounce, catch, toss and and kick. You inflate it with a pump that comes with the ball, but you will need 4 D size batteries to make it work. It does come with warnings about keeping it away from pets and branches. It comes with a lifetime replacement guarantee, but we didn’t read the fine print on that. If you have a crowd and a big enough yard, we’d say this will be a star attraction for getting the gang up and moving. You can deflate it when you are finished playing and use it on another day. Comes in multiple see-thru colors.

A giant 50” X 32” wall map for young geographers. Bring home this or a similar World Map ($8.99) for their room.

It claims to have a lifetime replacement guarantee, but we didn't read the fine print on that. If you have a crowd and a big enough yard and not a lot of very little kids, we'd say this will be a star attraction for getting the gang up and moving. You can deflate it when you are finished playing and use it on another day. Comes in multiple see-thru colors.
