A mixture of up to five colours can be poured into one of the three supplied moulds (one large, spherical design and two small, irregularly shaped ones), immersed in water, and then split open after four minutes to reveal a superbly bouncy creation. There are ten sachets of granules included (two of each colour) so between four and ten balls can be made following the enclosed instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 6 year old loved it 3 Jun 2009
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My 6 year old son received one of the above bouncy ball making kits for his birthday. He received lots more expensive and fancy presents but this is the one he said he enjoyed the most and took great pride in making and then continued to play with it for a long time.
The kit comes with crystals and moulds which only take less then 10 minutes to make so it's not a long winded project that you have to wait ages for before you can play with it. There were enough crystals to make 3 bouncy balls. The only slight downside is that after a few weeks the balls become quite hard and don't bounce. To revive them you just need to soak them in water for 10 minutes.

My son loved this. Didn't take long to make and he could use them almost straight away. Great price for what you get. Would make a lovely stocking filler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to complete 1 Jan 2010
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We were amazed at how easy this was to complete, you literally add the sand/grain stuff to the mold and sit it in a bowl of water, let it dry and hey presto! Make sure you add enough sand tho or it wont come out as a ball which could be a major problem when trying to bounce. These do loose their bounce but comes with full instructions on how to make them bounce again. Overall a good result and easy for any child to get involved with.

I bought the Make Your Own Bouncy Ball pack, as my workmates and I needed some well deserved relief from the stress of work.
Making the balls was easy and pretty good fun without making too much mess! Make sure to do it on a wipe-clean surface though for any spilt liquid.
It has to be said that a couple of the balls were mis-shapen, and although that did cause some concern initially, this did not effect the bounce at all, and we were soon having great fun playing with each others balls.
However with time the balls do start to dry out, causing them to become hard and uncomfortable to play with. This however is remedied by giving them a long soak in some water.
All in all a really fun product which will provide hours of bouncy ball fun!

Nice idea, but doesn't really work! My son made the balls (good fun) but after a day or so they dry out and don't bounce, requiring soaking for 12 or so hours after which they go very sticky and you need to wait another 12 hours for them dry. They then work for a day or so before you need to go through the process again.
Was nearly a good toy, but the chemistry needs a little refining

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of fun 23 Mar 2013

Its fine making the balls, but when they soon loose there bounce. To bring them back to life, place them in water again. They only work for a few days before loosing the bounce again.

5.0 out of 5 stars great fun 29 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My boys had great fun making a total of eight bouncy balls from the two sets. The kids really enjoyed it as they were able to create their own balls with only a little help and they only had to wait about four minutes or so for the first finished ball. In total they were both occupied with bouncy ball production for about 45 minutes. The balls are a little slimy until they have properly dried out and its worthwhile waiting as they pick up dirt very easily until properly dried. The finished product is quite impressive and certainly appears robust and very bouncy. Also, the inevitable mess was easily cleared up afterwards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice product for price.
Nice little gimmick, but rather mediocre.

Kept the kids busy for an hour though.

A nice little stocking filler if you're struggling for ideas.
