My students really enjoyed using these but they did puncture or start to go flat after a couple weeks.

My son required a yoga ball with stability legs on it for class, and this was the product the teacher recommended. Unfortunately, when we inflated it, we realized it was meant for MUCH smaller kids than the average 3rd grader. It does have an age range on the box, but I must not have seen it ahead of time, and I definitely just assumed this was the correct size as that's what was requested. They are perfectly functional for a much smaller kid though. We're using them for video game time at our house, but they are more appropriate for a pre-k or kindergarten aged child 3-5 years. I had to purchase a different (and much more expensive) product for the classroom. Just a heads up to anyone in this situation. Also, shipping was a bit slower that I expected - first world problems, I know.
