TheO Smart Ball is a clever idea. Smart phones and smart devices can do almost anything these days and entertainment and learning are primarily how our family uses them. My kiddos, ages two and six are pretty savvy with my smart phone so I was interested to see how we could play with TheO Smart Ball.
The great part that I see is that TheO Smart Ball is a really good way to protect your phone or iPod while a baby and toddler plays on an app! I have had my phone tossed a couple of times, thankfully it never cracked or was damaged. With TheO Smart Ball it creates the best cushion for any throw!
I went ahead and downloaded most of the free apps for TheO Smart Ball. The video that plays first when you open an app for TheO Smart Ball explains how to use the safety strap was helpful and I was glad I watched it. Most of the free apps are for five and under, but there were a couple that were okay for my six year old.
We starting playing with TheO Smart Ball on a rainy day which was perfect. There were a few learning Letters, numbers and animal apps that my two year old liked. My two year old is used to holding my smart phone to use it so TheO Smart Ball was a little strange for him. He has apps that are similar and you touch the smart phone with them so to shake the ball instead took some practice. Plus you have to give it a firm shake so half the time it worked for him and the other half he just had to keep trying to shake it harder. (Exercise)
When my six year old played with TheO the apps were different than what he normally plays. There was a good challenging balance app that he enjoyed. My six year old really thought TheO Smart Ball was fun.
I can see how TheO Smart Ball would be fantastic in a group setting for school or church or even team building at work. Especially with some of the icebreaker games. TheO Smart Ball should be fun to keep around for a while to use in all different types of settings and different groups of friends of all ages.
