Here is another great innovative toy manufacturer, Active People. They make Babals. What in the world is a Babal you ask? Well, Babal is a ball. No wait, it is two balls. No wait, it's a block to stack. It can't possibly be all those things, but it is.
According Babal USA's website "Like much of what is most interesting and attractive to children, Babal is simple and also surprising. Developed by Swiss toy designer Alex Hochstrasser, it is one ball which is actually two balls. In a large ball of one color there is a recessed dimple which snugly holds a second small ball of contrasting color.
When the two are fitted together, Babal rolls and bounces just like all balls do. When the small ball is removed, however, unexpected things happen. When set on its dimple, the big ball becomes both stationary and stackable. Multiple big balls can be stacked to make a towernot something one expects to do with balls. The smooth, nestability of the small ball into the larger ball provides lots of fun simply fitting them together.
Nesting, bouncing, catching, balancing, or bowling Babal is designed to stimulate creative play, nurture hand-eye coordination, promote the development of motor skills, and spur the imagination. Provides hours of fun, for kids solo or in groups indoors and out. Multiple Babals multiply the fun."
