Comments about Toss 'n Talk-About® Getting Acquainted Ball:

I bought this talk n toss ball for my activity groups with my elderly patients. It works great in that it's a great conversation starter and they love kicking and tossing the ball. However, the ball does puncture easily so you have to be careful when tossing or kicking the ball.
