I try very hard to be mindful of the toys I purchase for my kids. We don't have a lot of space in our home, and I feel that less is more when it comes to toys anyway. These wooden balls are one of the most played with items we have. They can be used for all sorts of imaginative play, like making ball runs, acting as little people, sorting, etc. Definitely worth the price as they are a high quality toy that I am sure will be played with for years to come!
