My son and I love this ball. It's fine for inside the house if you toss gently. It's not like the old foam nerf balls didn't knock stuff over either (and if you really want the foam one, you can still get them).
This thing is great--it's waterproof (though it isn't airtight, so if you hold it under water--something little kids do--it will take on water) and mud proof. You can hose it off with your kid to get the mud off them. You can play virtually anywhere with it, and it will hold up great.
Also--thanks to the awesome nerf colors, it's highly visible and not likely to get lost in the grass, sand, mud, or lake.
If you throw this "at" your kid, it will hurt (it won't leave a mark, but it will sting). Make sure they're paying attention and playing ball--it is a little harder, so if your kid can't yet catch a ball, maybe try a lighter foam one first. My son had just turned 4 when we bought this, and he was catching pretty well, but on the odd time he wasn't paying attention, he did complain that it hurt his chest or arm, so we'd take a break. It didn't discourage him though. He loves the ball.
