Back on the field - the real thing. Quality rubber and leather balls.
The ball - this quintessential toy has appeared in many different guises. On one level it has been refined to international sports standards, whilst at the other end of the scale it has been degraded to a cheap, plastic plaything that is easily punctured by sharp objects. These are quality balls, made of rubber and leather - durable and tough.
A classic: the inflatable rubber ball.
We had thought that we might have to manufacture these balls in India or Vietnam, but in actual fact we found them much closer to home. One of Germany's last remaining rubber companies still makes this ball - it may be more expensive than one made outside Europe, but our tests confirm its superior quality. The outer casing is a 4 mm thick natural rubber blend, making the ball strong and stable.
The skin formed during the vulcanisation of the rubber is removed by a drumming process lasting several hours. This gives the ball a smooth non-slip surface. (If the ball becomesshiny after extended use on grass or sand, you can rough it up again with sand paper). The cleverly designed valve is compatible with most bicycle pumps (a brass valve adaptor is enclosed with the ball). This red ball is for kicking, throwing, handball, football,basketball and volleyball - in short, it is a multi-purpose ball.
Non-toxic natural rubber balls - a rare find!
We looked hard and long for natural rubber balls that are not made in China (as a low level of lead has been found in colors used in natural rubber balls made in China). No such thing exists in the United States any longer but we finally found a solution here! This is a thick and solid natural rubber ball and perfect size for my 20-month-old who immediately grabbed it and would not let go. Customer service was also very helpful, answering all my questions and offering assistance. This really is one of the few left that carry these quality goods...
A Unique Ball
There is a unique feel to this ball, whether carrying, throwing or kicking it. I've taken it on several 'days out' already with the kids and they like it too, and it's so different to a normal ball in terms of quality and looks. Thoroughly excellent!
