I’d never heard of a waterball until a young girl almost died in one recently. Now maybe it’s me, but as soon as I saw a picture of one I could hear my mother’s voice telling me to never, ever, ever put a plastic bag over your head. Makes sense. Of course, I understand that everyone has good common sense and would be sure that their child could breathe before climbing inside a waterball, and like all good parents, I assumed there was a way to breath inside one. FAIL, there’s not. I went to this site and discovered on the FAQ page that there is enough air inside the ball to breath “for a long time”. Ha, ha, ha! There’s no way I get into one of those things and thusly not my kid.
lighter darker note, the web site also mentions the “Loveball”, in which two people can enter and float around the pool in, at night. NOT.
I’ll stay with my good ole rubber tube.
