it's totally a matter of life or death. no, really, i WILL die if i don't find one because it's annoying me soooooo much

when I was little I had this ball that was made of a kind of soft rubber. It came with a rigid plastic straw to blow it up and a stopper for the hole. it was the best ball. it bounced really well, was soft enough to use indoors etc etc

anyway, i saw some about a year ago in ELC and was going to get one for the ds's but didn't and now they don't do them and when i google all I can find are regular inflatable beacj ball type things!

a friend of mine told me they have a special name, but i can't remember what it was (it might have begun with a G)

pllllleeeeeeeeeease if you have any idea what i'm talking about put me out of my misery

Gosh, scurryfunge, I think I want a Gummi now - that truly is the blurb of the Gods. It's the curious textured surface I think that's calling me. And the weird bargain price too.

ooooh yes!!! i think the gummi is it!! and what a bargain price too grin the ELC ones were about £6 each!!!

i can't work out how to buy it confused

scurryfunge Mon 09-May-11 22:19:25

Try the quick buy option or just call them.

scurryfunge Mon 09-May-11 22:32:01
