The Gymnic Soffy Ball is great for use when children are learning to throw and catch a ball. Often a standard, firm or heavy, ball can be very threatening to a child as it approaches her face. Many children want to dodge the ball, or to shield their faces as a ball comes their way. The Soffy ball is different. It has a lovely soft and almost pliable texture, and since it is so light, it is not offensive to sensory defensive children as they don’t fear being hurt or bumped by the Soffy ball. Using the ball slightly under-inflated can also slow it down a little, which may make it still less threatening. Under inflating the ball a little will also make it easier to grab. Despite its soft texture, the Soffy ball is actually tough, but preferably for use indoors or in the swimming pool.
