We have had this ball for about 6 months. I got it because the previous ones we had, had ended up punctured. So far this one still looks exactly like new, so it is lasting well. It does not look like it will be easily punctured as it is not at all flimsy.
The Chuggington design on the ball is really big, with one on each side. One side is Koko, Wilson and Brewster with the phrase "Traintastic" as pictured above and the other one has a larger image of Wilson with the words "Let's ride the rails!" and the Chuggington logo above it. My boys love Chuggington so they are happy to see these pictures on the ball, and the images are very bright and colourful so I like it too.
The texture of this ball has a smoothy plasticky feel which makes it very easy to clean and wipe down, so it can be played with outside and then very easily cleaned afterwards.
It is quite light so if it is thrown and does accidently hit another child it will not do any damage, and it is light enough to be easy for young toddlers to pick up and handle easily which makes it a great ball for small children, for either inside or outside use.
I would recommend these Early Learning Centre 9 inch balls for any young children, they come in a variety of characters so you can choose whichever one you prefer. I found the price of 2.99 very reasonable! A ball is a simple toy that gets so much use, so you would definitely get your value for money from it. You may be able to buy cheaper such as from the pound shop but as I found, sometimes those balls will not last well so I would say you are better off buying a good quality one like this which is still a reasonable price, but will last so much better.
