Insert a deflated balloon (included) into the balloon cover hole, blow up the balloon, tie the end, and push the tied end inside the cover. You now have a super lightweight and bouncy, stuffed animal ball that's safe and fun! It's lighter and bouncier than a regular ball, so throwing and catching your ballon animal is perfect for working on eye-hand coordination. With this soft fabric cover, balloons won't easily pop and in the instance they do pop, the balloon pieces are safely contained inside the cover.
