I bought 12 of these for the elementary school I work at, and they didn't last a day outside without popping. I went through 4 of them in 4 days before just giving them away to the kids as prizes. Great idea, really poor quality balls though. Maybe better for indoor use?

Response from Gopher:

By Gopher, Vice President of Supply Chain ,

"Dear Playworks Coach, I am sorry that 4 of the CharacterEd® Utility Balls that you had purchased popped after a short time in use, Generally speaking this product generally performs well either indoor or outdoor but it obviously did but for you. That would be very disappointing. Because we value you as a customer and appreciate your feedback and we want to make sure to make it right for you. Normally we would like to contact you directly but because you did not provide your contact information we have no way of getting a hold of you to rectify the situation. Please contact us at customercare@gophersport.com or 1(800)533-0446 and we will be happy to fix your situation. Appreciatively, Mike Prochaska Vice President of Supply Chain "
