Product Description

Product Description

Magically imprint your hand, face and more with just a touch! Watch the Gertie change colors with temperature. Purple changes to light blue. 9" in diameter.

From the Manufacturer

Abracadabra - the Small World Toys Magic Gertie Ball changes color when you play with it. This award-winning ball is pale blue when warm and changes to purple when chilled. Children love making handprints, face prints, and other designs, then watch them disappear. The magical fun is endless. Like all Gertie balls, the Magic Gertie ball is an easy-grip, no-slip, bouncy ball you can take anywhere. It's super easy to throw and catch, and you can take it anywhere. Gertie Balls travel small. Just deflate the ball for packing, and reinflate it with the included straw. The 9'' ball is safe for all ages.

Small World Toys has been a leading toy manufacturer for 50 years. We believe that play is an integral and necessary part of a child's development and education. At Small World Toys, we are committed to developing fun, innovative, high quality products for children of all ages.

Customer Reviews

I can't believe I paid this much for a ball that looks like a dollar store item.
Kay Allen
Also the ball is very easy to grasp/grip so even the beginning toddler can have fun catching and tossing this around!

If you inflate the ball until it is firm enough to bounce, you cannot get the straw out and plug in.

the idea is great - a ball that changes color. that feature works ok, so i have no qualms with the material. the ball itself is poorly executed - there is no valve to keep the air in, just a plastic plug, that my child loves to pick on and open the ball. It is supposed to be inflated with straw, but there is no good way to insert the plug with the straw still in place... so it deflates very fast.

maybe a magic playmat?

This ball is a great ball for small hands. The way that the ball compresses allows for it to be gripped (one-handed) by a toddler. We got this ball for our daughter's 1st birthday and she loves it. She very often reaches around her regular beach ball to grab the gertie ball. The one downside to the ball is that it loses air quickly and has to be blown up every day to keep it firm.

I purchased this for my 18 month old grandson as he loves balls. I was not impressed. It does not hold air well and barely shows a hand print when he plays with it. He did not seem to like it either as it sat in the corner most of the time.

our ball barely changes colour, nothing like the picture shown, you would struggle to notice if you didn't know it was supposed to change.

From the description of this ball it seemed to be a perfect gift for my 18 month old grandson. This ball comes deflated in a small package. It is only about 8" wide when you inflate by blowing up by mouth. I was expecting a ball that would change colors when touched but this only happens if it is chilled first and stops happening as soon as the ball returns to room temp. (and that happens very quickly). I can't believe I paid this much for a ball that looks like a dollar store item.

i was very disappointed with this ball. not only is it a serious pain to inflate, it hardly changes color. i had to run it under cold water and then was able to make a slight handprint only until the ball got back to room temperature. for $8.99 it's definitely not worth it and i am taking them back to the store i bought them from tomorrow. i would not recommend them to anyone.

By J. S. on April 27, 2009
I had a Gertie ball when I was younger, and was very excited to find out that they still made them. I needed something small to send to a 3 yr old when we sent her brother a birthday gift and this seemed perfect. She and her 1 yr old brother love it! Their mom said that they call it the "magic ball" and is great because you can travel with it (just deflate, pack, and reinflate wherever). We ended up ordering a couple different sizes of gertie balls for our 1 yr old and he loves them too. My husband and I even enjoy playing with them! They're great for any age and don't hurt it you get hit by them.

I'm very disappointed with this item. I expected to get the ball in the mail and be able to give it to the babies in my daycare so they could see the marks their hands made--but boy was I wrong! Either this ball is so old that the hypercolor/heat reaction doesn't work anymore, or the product never lived up to its expectations to begin with! Has anyone received a ball that DID work? The ball I received changed colors ONLY when I held it up to a boiling, steaming crockpot! What babies' hands are THAT hot? Buyer beware!
