Worth a look.
By Modern Man
It's always hard to decide on an item that has two reviews at opposite ends of the scale. I took a gamble and wasn't disappointed. My dog's not a hard core chewer and besides I wouldn't leave a dog unattended with anything that contained batteries. You never know what they can accomplish given enough time!
If you plan on getting this out just for one on one play at night I don't think you'll be unhappy with the quality at all. I wouldn't submerge it in water but the removable area is very well wedged in there and I would dare to say fairly water resistant. As long as you don't go swimming with it I'm sure it would be fine.
The light is bright and alternates between the colours shown rather than being them all at once like the image. A nice touch though perhaps accidental is that it sometimes resets to red with an impact. I think this is when it hits the on/off area. It's fun anyway as it seems to interract with play.
A good buy.

Great idea, shame about the durability
I've bought two of these over the last couple of years as they're ideal for those early morning (5.45am!) walks which take place in the dark for half the year. However, whilst they have both started-out really bright and easy to switch on and off, they have very soon become extremely hard to activate.
The second issue has been the batteries, the first one I bought lasted a good 2 months before it started fading, but the latest one lasted less than week! On both occasions I have replaced the batteries but the switch inside appears to have given-up.
All-in-all I wouldn't object to buying a new one every season if only the batteries and switch lasted, but the durability of the switch and batteries is far less than the super-tough rubber encasing them.
Ultimately I'm left with two very durable tennis balls (great!) except that my dog can't see them!!!

By Mrs. D. J. Rayner
We bought our ball a month ago and it has been a fantastic success. Our 2 border collies love it and it means we can walk and play with them in the dark. We bought a ball that changes colour and the colours are all gorgeous and very bright. The ball is tough, a good size (tennis ball like) and can't be turned off accidentally by the dogs. We have been stopped and asked where we got if from by so many people. I can't recommend it enough.
