This is probably one of the coolest toys my kids have ever played with outdoors.

Seriously, I have never heard my son laugh the way he does when he's playing with this toy.

With the weather warming up and kids headed outdoors after so many months of being cooped up inside, believe me when I say that your backyard needs this toy.

Are you ready for this? It's incredibly cool. And insanely fun.

What is it?

That, my friends, is the Great Big Outdoor Play Ball (or GBOP) from HearthSong!

This 52" inflatable ball is so incredible. My kids absolutely love this thing! It inflates quickly and totally provides hours of fun. One of the best things about the GBOP is that kids can have a blast solo or playing together. My son laughs his head off whether he is running like a hamster inside that ball or when his dad is rolling him around the yard. It's definitely a ton of fun!

If this GBOP isn't big enough for your kids, take a look at HearthSong's newest addition, the Incred-A-Ball!

HearthSong has been providing kids with amazing toys since 1983. Even after all these years, HearthSong remains committed to making sure that there's a place where you can find quality toys and playthings that stimulate a child's imagination and activity. Their selection of toys canvases all age ranges and is very impressive. The quality is superb. I'll be honest, my first thought when I see an inflatable anything for the backyard is, "I give it an hour before it pops." When I realized the extremely high quality of the material used to make the GBOP I was beyond impressed. These things are built tough and can stand up to the active playtime that kids will put them through. All the toys in HearthSong's collection look equally as impressive.

One of my favorite things about HearthSong is the ease of shopping. When browsing the site you'll find that the toys are broken down into so many different categories that searching for the perfect toy is a total breeze. You can search by activity, age and even specific gift ideas. HearthSong is there for you to make your shopping easy and your kids smile. I'm a huge fan.
