These are definitly open ended play things. My favorite. Dacia brought these over for us to play with (thank you Dacia) and the kids love them. They are used like hamster balls to walk around in. Or how many kids can we pile in....and can we still walk around with this many?? Or quiet places to talk or read. Or to put onto the tricycles and ride around...notice they used the boxes also.
She brought us 6 or 7...they made a hotel today. Everyone had their own room. These are pretty neat...Thank you for adding to our outside fun!
