Visions of Sugarplums...

Does this not just scream, "Code Yellow Boys"? I think so. From Target. And in yellow. How appropo, huh?

I especially like the customer review that says this toy helps to keep the basement clean because the kids want the floor to be clear to use it.

But what I love most is the daydream of me, about eight months pregnant, taking the boys out for a roll in it at the park. Two in a giant cushioned ball and one in a giant cushioned belly.

And other kids lining up to pay admission so they could also have a turn. It's beautiful.

And can you imagine the 84" red one?!

I'm giddy, I tell you, just thinking about it. Giddy.

I'll donate some dough IF the Giga ball is YELLOW.
Red is nice, but you guys are the Yellows, I have to see a yellow ball here.

Congrats on being top result on your google search. You are SOOOOO cool.

Love the ball!! That's one of those toys that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy as a mom. "Yes, yes, my children will love this! They will get exercise! Our home will be continually euphoric!" Hope it makes all your dreams come true!

Oh, and thanks for the encouragement. I smiled and nodded and felt all warm and fuzzy myself. Hope your little guy is feeling all better. Cute pjs!

In amazing race they had the contestants roll down a HUGE hill in one of these balls. It looked like so much fun prego or not. I think you should roll with it and get the ball. Its nice to be giddy when pregnant I wouldn't know I was in a bad mood the whole time:(

Imagining you pushing your kids to the park inside the ball makes me laugh!

Breit Mama said...

OH MY GOSH! I saw these right before Christmas and wanted to buy one so badly for my three screaming princesses. Just as I was about to add it to my cart I had a vision of my youngest being pushed down a steep hill by the middle child and ending up at the bottom spinning like a top on her head!!!

I say go for the yellow one and let me know if the above scenario occurs at your house...

Hope you all feel better soon!

i want one!
nearby in brighton, michigan, they have a crazy sphere (event/ride?) thing. you can get 2 people inside the dry one, strapped in opposite each other. then they roll you down a long slope. OR, you can get in a wet one with another passenger, unstrapped, with 5 gallons of water or so, and slosh your way down that long slope. i almost took my 14 year old niece this summer, but i was too chicken. my (at the time) 4 year old daughter wanted to do it, though...
the giga ball looks like a scaled-down version that i could handle.

That is some awesome ball! I like the part about cleaning the basement. Maybe we need one...

Amber said...

Kid fun? My hubby would love to be set loose on that one!

Sketchy said...

Does that remind anyone else of an old saturday morning cartoon and a garbage can? No? Me neither...

But those are really fun, and good therapy for balance, lol, which is where I have seen them before. But the kids didn't realize they weren't just having fun, so should work for all.

Tracey said...

Dude, that is soooo cool. I can just picture my boys flipping each other over in it.

Gabriela said...

That looks like a good time, especially for you sitting on the sideline drinking a lemonade or something.

Hope you are both feeling all the way better!

You must get one of these ... and you must post a picture. And then, once I hear the CYM review ... I might go out and round me one up, too!!

This thing looks AWESOME!!

That is really cool!! I want one! I saw something like this on the Amazing Race a few years ago.

Now time to tackle the mosh pit down there before I can hit publish... ;-)
