Wubble Ball, Our New Favorite Toy

* Disclosure *
We received a free Wubble Ball in return for our honest review.
Free products, samples and even paid sponsored posts, do not affect or change our opinions in any way.

If your kids are anything like mine, you have probably heard the yelps and shrieks coming from the living room during TV time, when toy commercials come on.
I started hearing about this, Wubble Ball not so long ago and I usually just keep the name in the back of my mind or I am so busy that I just pretend to hear what they are saying... (Yes, I feel guilty about this a LOT, but you know how it is when you are trying to do 25 things at once and you have 3 or 4 that will  kids all yakking all at once??)
One morning we opened the door and Deegan, my youngest acted like he knew there was a toy for him in the box. (I guess it's some sort of radar kids must have!) Well, we opened it up and sure enough, he was right. (He did have to share the Wubble Ball with his siblings though...)

Make sure that you have D batteries in a drawer somewhere if you order one of these! That's where I messed up. I usually have AA, AAA, D and C batteries but we must have run out of D's at some point and I failed to restock.
Right away he was delighted with his new toy and broke out in song over this toy he sees on TV, that same toy that has been in his dreams since seeing it in action!
His brother and sister came home from school and immediately started the dreaded, "OMG MOM! OMG MOM! Can we take this outside?" "MOM! MOM! Can you pump this up?" (I always love how sometimes the simplest of things seem to make kids the happiest.) Not that the Wubble Ball is equivalent to a giant, cardboard box or anything, but, it isn't a video game or a screen that requires internet or a screen!

This brings me to my review of the Wubble Ball...
I actually love the thing! It kept us laughing and I mean, really laughing, straight through even after deflating it to put away and use again the next day. There are so many fun things you can do with this and it is just an amazing toy that is actually fun for the whole family. Even if you are just standing on the porch to watch the fun and excitement!
You can watch a few videos I uploaded on Instagram of our kids having fun!
I like the price, I must say it is fair and it is a decent enough price that you can grab a few so each of your kids or grandkids can have their very own favorite color. I also love the warranty! For $6.99 you can return the valve portion in the enclosed envelope and a new Wubble Ball will be on it's way to you in no time!
The replacement guarantee covers, If (OH NO!) you pop it, period.
However, there are some tips and suggestions how to take proper care of your Wubble Ball. (We haven't had an issue yet and it has been inside, outside, thrown off of heads, hit fall leaves and flew in neighbor's yards), so, I'm more then content with how tough this thing really is!
Most of this is common sense but still needs to be pointed out.
Don't leave your Wubble Ball in direct sunlight on hot days for a long time.
If you are not playing with your Wubble Ball, keep it somewhere safe, preferably inside.
If you get a small hole, you can seal it temporarily with a small piece of duct tape or other strong tape.
If you plan on playing rough with your Wubble Ball, do not inflate past 30 inches!
Sharp objects like tree branches and rough surfaces like gravel can pop and damage your Wubble Ball.
See, pretty easy to comprehend, right?
Again, we have 2 boys and 2 girls and our younger 3 have been fairly rough with this and I am impressed with how it has been holding up!
It has been whacked against the porch, the walls, the deck, it has flown a couple yards away in fall and it is still intact!
I don't know if I mentioned, the Wubble Ball has a lifetime guarantee!
Oh, another thing I happen to love about this is how easy it is to keep clean. You can just deflate, wipe clean with a drop or 2 of dish soap and some water and let it air dry. We lay ours on a dish towel and let it dry and it gets quite clean.

I found this video extremely helpful for inflating our Wubble Ball for the first time:
