Its an inflatable plastic beach ball with a LED "sparkler" ball sealed inside of it that goes on for tens of seconds whenever it's hit stiffly. For the evening it worked, the kids thought it was pretty fun---and on a big grassy lawn, it was worth the bucks it cost. Sadly, by the next evening, it wasn't working---and there wasn't anything we could do to get it back on again. Sad.Still, it was amusing for the one evening.And here I am, ordered another one for a evening camp out.Side note: not as bright as ..
I was slightly suspicious when my friend started raving about her light up beach ball. Often light up sporting goods do not live up to expectations. She had people over for a pool party and brought this out once the sun went down. It turned out to be easy to see and a good quality ball to boot! Great for the beach or pool in the evening!
This ball works ok, but I thought it would be better. We bought it to play with in the pool at night. It does look cool when it lights up, but sometimes you really have to slam it hard on the water to get it to work. I wish it would light up more easily.
