This may be the best toy I have ever bought! Kids can roll it and go inside. Neighbors stop to look and play. Occasionally it gets a hole, but these have been easily fixed with the patch kit. It took me an hour to inflate the cells using Hearthsong's air pump. Don't even think you can blow this up without that.

THIS BALL IS A WONDERFUL IDEA AND WE WERE SOOOOOO EXCITED TO GET IT FOR OUR TWO CHILDREN (AGES 8 & 3)---this was a santa present following several large snowstorms so it was PERFECT for a Christmas morning adventure! Each bubble is blown up seperate so assemby is no problem---and it looks exactly like it should--HUGE and FUN! HOWEVER, even in several feet of snow and only allowing our children in the ball one at a time, etc (we were conscious!)--the ball is now sitting in our yard half deflated because SEVERAL of the bubbles deflated--not sure on what--but it's a HUGE waste of money sitting in my yard collecting rain and debris!!!!! I LOVE Hearthsong products and will continue to purchase from them, but this was undoubtedly the worst purchase EVER!

"So much fun!"
from Asheville, NC
About Me 3 W Add, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
Comments about HearthSong Incred-a-ball:
We spent some weekends at the football field and our children have just had a 'ball' with this. Wish we had two to race and play 'bumper balls'. People stopped and watched, took pictures and thought it looked like a blast! My kids giggled there heads off. Soo much fun. Wish the material was thicker as the two of the panels popped after a few uses but it still works fine. We call it our "Human Hampster Ball".
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Rips within hours
About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
This breaks within the first couple of hours. The kids loved this until it ripped into a flat mat. It didn't take long and my son is only 40 lbs. It was too expensive to break so easily.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Won't Go The Distance....
Pros: Kids love it. My six year old and all of his friends were highly entertained. It was so nice to see something besides Wii and Legos capture their attention with such joy.Cons: The entertainment was brief. After three outdoor plays, the ball ended up with FIVE leaks along the seams, which we cannot seem to repair. The ball was only used on soft grass, after carefully removing all sharp objects, e.g. sticks and rocks. Didn't matter. Broken. An additional con was the amount of time it took to inflate. If you are looking for a "one shot" play, this ball fills the bill. Buyers beware: it is NOT durable.Since it's headed for a landfill, after such a short period of time (Christmas gift), I can only give this toy ONE star.

My cheeks blew out blowing this thing up
By Flappy Cheeks

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
My wife bought this as a Christmas present for our kids. She wanted it inflated under the tree on Christmas morning. I started at about 11pm Chrismas Eve and finished at 5am. My cheeks look like Louie Armstrons. One of the cells popped on the 3 try. If your not suicidal this thing will get you there.

Not worth the money!
By Dissatisfied Grandmother
from Midlothain Texas
Very time consuming to inflate and some of the areas would not stay inflated. It is not studry enough for kids to play in. Would not roll like others that my grandchildren have played in. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!! Very dissapointing.

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
Merchant response: Inflatable products by nature are easily damaged. Our aim is to always supply customers with the highest quality toys at an affordable price. Our GBOPs and Incred-A-Ball have been made with a weight of vinyl that is sufficient to support the suggested use, but not so heavy as to drive up the cost.There are double seams on every cell and extra reinforcement has been added at the openings to insure the best possible experience for our customers. Cells might deflate for a variety of reasons. First try to identify the cause of the issue. We include patches to repair holes. Patch kits are also available at most sporting goods stores and many mass merchant stores. If no hole is visible, please check that all the valves are tightly closed. Air temperature will also affect inflation. If the air is cold, the cells will seem to lose air, but really it’s just that cold air takes less volume than warm. Additionally, we do not recommend leaving the balls outdoors for long periods of time. Sun and exposure to the elements will weaken the vinyl.As always, we do offer a 100% guarantee. Please contact our Customer Service department with any questions or concerns.

About Me Grandparent
I bought this ball as a group gift for my grandchildren. and they loved it. There are 7 of them and each one got an initial turn of about 5 minutes each. Sadly, we found it was necessary to reinflate all but a few cells every other turn. Left alone for the same amount of time it went completely flat except for about 4 cells. We only used it on the grass. This was a huge and expensive flop and we were all disappointed

Incred-a-ball - incredible!
By Grandma Diane
from Lincoln, NE
This is a great product. The kids just loved playing with it. Big enough for just about anyone to fit into. My grandkids played with it on Christmas Day and loved it. Would work well on snow or grass. The larger you are, the harder it is to keep rolling but still lots of fun.One drawback. This thing is huge! Your best bet to inflate it is to use a power compressor. Using the air pump that is sold for it would take all day to inflate the ball.

great gift. My grandchildren love it.
from Oreland PA
I was concerned when I read some reviews about the ball that stated that the seams were not strong. Our kids have been using it for almost a month, and it seems to be holding up well!

This ball is the coolest! My 6 and 3 year old love it and have so many different things they do with it! Both of them can fit in it together and they use it as a clubhouse as well! One of the seams started to tear a bit and HearthSong quickly replaced the ball for me without question!

"Be Careful What You Wish For..."
from Pittsburgh, PA
My chidlren took turns rolling inside the Incrediball, and loved it--we supervised their playtime to ensure the toy would not be misused. However, two segments began leaking within the first three days of use, and within one week, several segments were separating from each other around both openings.

Lots of fun!
Best used in a shady yard, when it is hot outside. We store under the deck, to keep it cool, and use in our shady backyard. But all the neighborhood kids love it!

By 40-something kid
from Fredericksburg, VA
Its big and durable enough to climb inside. But its too big for indoor use, its hot inside the ball when played with in the sun, and it really does not roll well when a child is in the ball. And that's what the kids wanted to do with it. Smaller kids can fall into one of the two openings and hit their body against the ground.

Break a ball
By Chris the PE teacher
from Orange, CA
We wanted to roll around the yard one child at a time ages 6 and 8. Within a day the seams at the opening broke. It also take forever to inflate.
Merchant response: Thank you for your comments. We are committed to ensuring that all of our large outdoor play balls are double sealed for strength given a segment of our customers have experienced this particular particular concern. Please remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Too much work for Mom and Dad!
By Hyperventilated Mom
from Charlotte, NC
This is not something a 11 year old can blow up by themselves. It has many (30 or so) separate sections to blow up. The nozzles are difficult to open and shut. Even with a pump it takes about 1 hour to blow up.
Merchant response: Thank you for your comments. We are committed to ensuring that all of our large outdoor play balls are double sealed for strength given a segment of our customers have experienced this particular particular concern. Regarding inflation, the cells do have to be inflated individually as the is significant to the integrity of the ball. When properly inflated with an electric pump, inflation should take approximately one half hour. Please remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

We spent more hours inflating this ball than playing with it, because it ripped and leaked within a couple hours of playing in it. The very brief time it was not torn, it was enormously fun. However, within minutes, several cells tore at the seems, other cells began deflating, rendering it useless. You must blow up each cell, which took us several hours. When it was ready for play, we only used it on soft grass. Three small, young girls (not rough housers) were playing with this. All supervised play--no wild behavior. Too bad the ball didn't last. It's so fun that we wish we could give it a good review, but, unfortunately, the GBOP is not worth the trouble or money. We figured our GBOP costs us about a dollar per minute of play.
