it doesnt matter which one you get.. as long as it is big enough for your child to fit inside.
first of all it is just cool. It starts out little and when you pick it up is gets REALLY big. The medium ones are big enough for an average sized adult to sit in. When you roll it fast enough it expands.
It is great for imaginitve play. My daughter (3) likes to use it as a "cage" for her toy animals... or herself when she is pretending to be a dog or something. Sometimes she just sits in it to watch TV.
Its a neat toy for ages 2-7. Kids older than that will think it's neat, but I cant see them using it as much.
Special Gift Idea:
I have a cousin in-law (she is in her late teens) who is mentally handicapped. I showed her the ball and she went ecstatic. She played with it for about an hour. I'm going to get her one of the HUGE (60$) models for christmas because she will be able to fit into that one.
If you happen to know someone like that this is the ULTIMATE gift. Number 1 recomendation of any toy Ive ever seen for that catagory.

This sphere was a present for my friend's son. He is about 2,5 years old. He was playing with it for half an hour without pause.

Most interesting thing is that his parents were also fascinated by it. The very idea of something so simple to change itself so magically.

Oh and of course "glow-in-the-dark". Buy it, let it energize from a light, then go to a dark room to play with it.

I purchased this as a tool to use in therapy, it's very good for teaching kids deep breathing exercises. I imagine it can be used in a varieties of ways. Word of caution- if kids grab between the spokes and the ball closes, it will pinch their fingers. Older kids will be able to open it back up and get their fingers out, younger kids will panic. I would recommend supervision for younger kids while using this toy.

Going to use these for breathing exercises for my middle school students (breathe in while it opens, breathe it while it closes). They are very well constructed and my students love them. They are large enough to take good deep breaths with. Smaller ones won't give you quite the same affect.

My son loved this toy. A friend of ours daughter had this and he loved playing with it. I looked for it everywhere. Walmart, Toysrus and finally found it on Amazon. Good price as well. We bought it for him for his 8th Birthday. I even play with it myself.

Fun for kids and adults! This is a fun toy for tossing, using as a hat and even crawling inside. This is a great gift for the kid who has everything, but keep in mind that it is a novelty and will sit idle until rediscovered.

Nice to have a toy that doesn't require batteries! This is such a simple toy. I couldn't find this anywhere in stores and was so excited to find in on Amazon. My son saw it in a movie and wanted one for Christmas. It's a good size and glows!! When other kids come over they are interested in playing with it too.
