Bumpie Gertie Ball {Review}

I am thrilled to be a part of Timberdoodle’s review team. As faithful customers for the past eleven years, it’s awesome to be a part of their team. This time, Apollo gets to do his very first review for the Bumpie Gertie Ball. You might say the odds were stacked a bit in this, since the boy is obsessed with balls of all types, but we knew he’d be honest.

The Gertie Bumpy Ball is a soft plastic ball covered with little knobs. It is perfect for little hands to grab, soft enough to throw in the living room with no harm and best of all, is odorless. Have you ever bought your baby or child a plastic toy/ball and had it smell of nasty chemicals? Who wants to give their baby that to play with and chew on? Not me!

Um…you’ve probably noticed from the photo that the ball is rather deflated. We’ve had it in the house for a couple of weeks and two days ago we found it like this…I honestly don’t know what happened to it…I am assuming one of my older children damaged it somehow. The quality of the ball seems quite nice, so I’m pretty sure the damage was not done by Apollo, but another child. In fact, a month or so ago, one of my children poked another of Apollo’s balls with a tack….

*sigh*

The price, $5.50, makes it a great value and I plan to buy him another one to replace this one. He loves it and plays with it every day. It is definitely one of his favorite toys!

Along with the ball, I received Timberdoodle’s Planning Folder which has a short, interesting handout for each item from their Baby Core Curriculum. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you might be choking on the idea of me endorsing “baby curriculum”…but the fact is we very carefully choose each and every baby toy we have. This “curriculum” isn’t flash card and baby videos, it’s educational toys. I really like the planning folder and feel like it would be a great resource for newer parents. In fact, if Apollo weren’t my fourteenth baby, and we didn’t already have plenty of educational toys, I would probably buy the Baby Core Curriculum. I do hope to buy the Amazing Peanut Ball for Apollo. You know an active baby like him would love this!

You can get a free Timberdoodle catalog here. I use the catalog as a resource as I plan my children’s school year. They have Core Curriculum packages for every age, and I use those lists to “fill in the gaps” as my children move up a grade each year. Most of the items we own already and our collection grows a little year by year. The Core Curriculum would be great for a family just beginning their  journey of homeschooling.

{I was given the Bumpy Gertie Ball free in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way}
