Product DescriptionThe gold nugget of the young ball-playing world, our Beeping Foam Ball levels the playing field like nothing you've ever seen. Made of solid foam, it's roughly the same size as a standard inflatable soccer ball. This ball, however, doesn't have to move to make noise. The tiny, robust beeping module, hidden deep in the center of the high-quality foam, beeps throughout the entire game.
Simply worm your finger underneath a special flap found on the top of the ball, and flick the beeper on. For the duration of your game of Kickball, Dodge Ball or even Soccer, you'll hear four beeps, followed by just over a second of silence, then another four quick beeps. This carefully-engineered beeping series eliminates confusing echoes and allows players to carry on their usual chit-chat and banter, while keeping all players aware of the ball's location ... at all times!
Wind resistance, sloping fields, opposing players and changing strategies are all compensated with this priceless ball. For the first time, kids with absolutely no sight can dash onto the field and make a meaningful contribution to their team, with minimal coaching or guidance. All you need to unleash the full potential of blind youngsters is an ordinary ball ... with a small yet extraordinary modification. (The beeping module runs for several hours on a single AA battery, which, of course, is easily replacable.)
