I was happy to see that this ball was not one of the larger ones. I needed a smaller size for my 2 1/2 year old son. It inflates to 18-in diameter (which I could not find that information anywhere on the site, so I was not sure if we would have to return it or not). I have seen both smaller and larger hopper balls, so I was happy to see it was one of the smaller sizes. It is still slightly too big for my 2 1/2 year old, but that means we have room to grow with it and get more than a year's worth of play. The box does say for 4+ years, and I think he might be a tad too big for the ball at 4 years. He has a great time using it though, as his older brother has a larger-sized ball from Imaginarium (appox 22in diameter) that my 2 1/2 year old cannot fit on at all. So far so good though. Both the 5 year old and 2 year old are happily bouncing around the house. It helps during these winter months when there is not much play time outdoors due to cold. It's a great way for them to burn energy without bouncing all over the furniture or on top of things, like you could from an indoor trampoline. They get to move around, without being able to possibly damage too many things. The ball came in blue, and according to the box there were only 2 color options: red or blue. That was perfect for us, as blue is my son's favorite color.

The product itself is great! However we had to take it away from our son because he was chasing the dog with it. With that said I deflated it and placed it on our wooden dresser to be blown up and used later after punishment. Anyway today I was dusting and removed the ball from my furniture and the rubber melted my wood veneer furniture. BRAND NEW FURNITURE and expensive too. This is really just a heads up to future buyers. Who would have thought a rubber ball would cause so much damage.

Comments about Little Tikes 1001284 Little Tikes Hopper (Color/Styles Vary):
I purchased the pink hopper ball in the store for my daughter, but they didn't have any other colors for my son, so I went online and made sure to select this option when purchasing the ball as it stated I would be randomly selected between blue or green or yellow. I received the shipment yesterday and it was pink! Needless to say, I am returning this to the store and I will find the hopper ball at another store other than TRU for my son.

Bought 3 of these as gifts for my 2,5, & 7 year old. All 3 love them (even though it's a little big for my 2 year old). I love that it gives them a way to get out their energy during those long winter months and the days when they can't go outdoors. This was inexpensive and one of their favorite gifts! Would definitely recommend!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I went into the Toys-r-us store - and they were out of stock - but the store employees were so nice - that they ordered just what I wanted and had it shipped to the house. Good service, arrived in a few days.Thanks

We have a very small yard, so a trampoline or swingset are not an option, but we needed something active our boys could enjoy. These are perfect. Good quality rubber seems very durable. Easily inflated with a hand pump. Plenty big and bouncy for our 5 and 7 yr old. Work great inside and out.

Hoppers are super sturdy and easy for my kids (ages 3 & 5) to use! They love them and burn up lots of energy!
Lots of fun!

Purchased this item on line and was very happy how fast it shipped. My 4year old son really likes this hopper. It's a good size. It seems easy for him to handle as he bounces around on it. Very pleased I bought it.

Age/size is misleading
By Boy Mom of 2

About Me Working Parent
Purchased this today for my 3 and 6 year old. I was greatly disappointed to inflate it and realize how small it was. I bought one for each of them and will be returning. The 3 year old who is average size is too big for it and the 6 year old cried when he realized it was wayyyy too small for him. Not the hopper I remember from my youth for sure.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
