Sportime orange medicine ball is used for tactile and heavy input work, and has a pliable foam skin with a filling of small polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic balls in a non-toxic gel that contours to fit the hands, feet, and curves of the body. PVC plastic is corrosion resistant and lightweight, and has high strength. It resists reactions with acids, gasoline, alcohol, and hydrocarbons. The rolling of the interior balls provides a tractor-like movement for both massaging and stimulating the body, and they form fit to hands to offer comfortable handles for holding and lifting when the ball is grasped. The ball measures 8-1/2”in diameter, and weighs 8.8 lb./4.0kg. The ball can be used as a fidget toy, and for squishing, sitting, catching, stacking, rolling, and balancing activities. The ball includes an activity guide with suggestions for use, and a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for product information and handling procedures. The ball is suitable for preschool and early childhood learning environments.
