This ball has been loved by the whole family, from baby to adult. It has a very pleasant texture, and is easy to grip. My baby likes to watch it roll with all the beads spinning inside. It also makes a pleasant sound. The color is soothing too, transparent smocky light blue. You can teach centrifuge force to older children with it, as the beads are visible, and spin so well! For adults, it feels like a stress reliever. For what you pay, if this ball if durable, you'll keep it around for a long time.
Edit: reviews around says the ball hurts? It's hard? It doesn't roll straight? I have no idea why they say that. It's a soft, rubber-like ball filled with air, very soft. My baby is 9 months, and is not getting hurt. We lay on our backs, and I spin the ball to make the beads roll, it's mesmerizing. Another funny trick is that as we are laying on our backs, I hold the ball from the top so we can face the beads, and I give it a flick, right where the balls are. It makes my baby laugh hysterically! I would buy it over and over again.
