I bought it for my daughter 6 months galloping to 4 feet. Nothing except the touch when it is on its way, she pays no attention but I think it will come. She manages to catch it easily with these pins. It is the size of a foam ball, I saw smaller but ultimately this size is good. The blue color is very pretty. She seems resistant to wear see. By cons I think the dust tends to stick to it, you make a little "chewy" material. Overall, I recommend this article.
