Gertie Ball

They don’t call this the world’s most catchable ball for nothing! It’s packaged with a straw, so you can change the amount of air anytime you want. (Note: deflate the ball slightly for a softer, squishier catch.) Extra bonus? This guy’s a color-changer; blue when warm and purple when cold, making it not just a super catchable ball, but a super cool one, too. (Small World Toys, $8.28)
