Really bouncy balls.
There's just something about a really bouncy ball that appeals to both Beanstalk and Squib.

As a true shopping hermit, most of my shopping is done online as it should be. But bouncy balls must be tested and not very many online stores offer them. Especially not the really bouncy ones filled with glitter. Who knew the boys would like those this year?

Totally worth it!
