As the nights get longer and day shorter, it gets harder to get kids outside to run off some spare energy. If your child needs some extra inspiration to stay outside as the light dwindles, check out these light up balls from Glowcity.
Despite its black color, this soccer ball works wonders in low light conditions. When kids kick or throw it, the orange hexagons light up. It makes going outside or staying late at the park more appealing for everyone playing. Kids love the extra light up feature, and parents will appreciate how long the lights last. You can get a Glowcity ball for soccer, basketball, football, and volleyball. You can also get the soccer balls in size three or four for smaller feet. Or get the soccer, basketball, and football in one set loaded with glowing fun.
We’ve had our ball for years, and it still works. With its impact activated switch, the light doesn’t waste energy when not in action. My kids enjoy kicking it around in the backyard or at the park. They would love to kick it inside with the lights off as well, but that isn’t allowed in our household. While you can replace the batteries, we haven’t had to do that yet. That means this ball makes a great gift to light up their play, or as a holiday gift.
