Think Outside the Ball!
A perfect saddle seat for children through teens who yearn to wiggle but need more stability than a traditional therapy ball. Our Peanut Ball encourages balance and stabilization of the core for an active learning posture. Like exercise ball chairs, it helps to enhance focus by supporting the user’s natural desire for movement. Instead of rolling every which way with a therapy ball, kids can rock back-and-forth or side-to-side. Recommended for daily exercise, positioning and therapy programs.
- Challenges balance, body awareness and core strength
- Ideal for children who need an active seat with support
- Made by Fun and Function
- Age 3+
Ideas for Use
Pretend it’s a horse! Ride it like a cowboy! Toss it and watch it bounce. Straddle the contoured center like a saddle or sit on it like a bench. Use as a seat in the classroom or as a bolster for exercise.
Inflates quickly with our Magic Air Inflator or hand pump (sold separately, see accessories). Balls "breathe" through their skin and may require topping off every couple weeks to stay fully inflated. We recommend keeping a pump on hand.
Available in four sizes. To select the right size ball, measure from armpit to fingers. Choose the corresponding size or next size up. Balls hold up to 750 lbs. Use with adult supervision.
- Made of PVC
- Free of BPA, phthalates and latex
- Safety-tested by independent third party laboratories

Grandsons Christmas GiftThe Peanut Ball was a Christmas gift for my two 8 year old grandsons who are both Autistic. They both really liked jumping and sitting on the peanut ball. It was much easier than trying to sit on a large round ball. Thank you.Read MoreI like it, my son howeverI love the peanut, strong, bouncy, my son on the other hand loves a regular big bouncy ball from Walmart, gonna return itRead MoreGlad to Bounce!The children enjoy being able to bounce as needed. I like that I can use it with all of my students- the light bouncers and the high energy bouncers.Read MoreAwesome!I bought the blue peanut ball for my 2 kids for Christmas. I finally found our air pump for therapy balls today. My kids can't get enough of this ball! Our daughter bounced on it, rolled on it, bounced it and had about 20 minutes of fun. Then our son came in with 2 friends. The younger of the friends had never been on a peanut ball before. He had fun experimenting on it. After the friends left, 2 hours ago, our son jumped on the peanut ball. He hasn't stopped bouncing or rolling! This is especially good as we are having an ice storm today, so no outdoor play! What a great full body workout!!Read MoreLove ThemWe have 3 of these in different sizes for our 3 and 6 year old boys. My husband and I even got the XL for us. We've had adults ask about getting one for them. It works well with their autism and sensory processing disorders. Wonderful for rainy days and the winter months indoors.Read MoreLove itWish I had gotten one size bigger, but otherwise love it. Makes a great seat, bouncer, roller. Lots of fun.Read MoreFunctions as more than a "seat"We love these peanut balls because they are a lot safer than the "medicine balls/exercise balls". My kids (ages 8 and 2) can sit on them in different ways or even share and sit on 1 together. My husband and I will often find them straddling their peanut balls and pretending to be riding a horse or laying on their belly on top of these. These are perfect items for proprioceptive and vestibular input.Read MoreGreat product--great fun!My 5 year old has sensory needs, including a need for movement. He also needs core strengthening. He uses a peanut ball at therapy, which meets helps meet his needs. It is great to have one at home now. He enjoys rolling on it frontward/backward, bouncing on it, and sitting on it. Thanks for a great product!Read Moreawesome ball!my kids (and all the neighborhood kids) can roll on this all day long! great for jumping, rolling or just plain sitting for story time.Read MoreThe Peanut Ball works wondersMy kids love to straddle while doing homework, and it's great for bouncing.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsBoth of my sons like playing with this toy. It does help with balance. They giggle when playing with it. I love the bright colors it comes it. The only downfall is that it's large to store. I don't like deflating and inflating every time we use it. Overall it's fun though.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsThe Peanut Ball works wonders! My kids Love it, its great to stradle while doing homework and is good for bouncing.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsI am generally really happy with F&F products but these p-nut balls were disappointing. They are REALLY narrow in the middle so don't work well for prone activities and they weren't balanced. One side was larger than the other(I ordered 2) and the inflation valve and seams were off center.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsLove the Peanut Ball!! My 12 year old Autistic Grandson grabbed it right away, bounced on it and took it to his bed with him the first night. We also have two typical children - aged 8 & 4 who also love it. Seems very sturdy.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsProduct update: It took more than three weeks for the initial surface odor to dissipate while the peanut sat in our garage. Now that it is basically odor-free, my son absolutely loves it. The product is very versatile -- good for rolling, bouncing, leaning against, wrestling with Dad, and balancing while sitting or standing (with support, of course). It's a hoppy, exercise ball, and ball chair all in one -- I like even use it as a footstool! Well worth the price; just be prepared for a possible delay of several weeks after inflating it to air out the odor if necessary.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsFun and Function had the best price for peanut balls! We purchased the yellow peanut ball for our 2.5 year old twins with developmental delays. This peanut ball is super durable and has withstood all three of our young children playing with it for hours. We use the peanut to bounce on when our twins need some sensory input or are having a difficult time focusing. It is very soothing for our input seekers. This peanut is very easy to clean and quick to inflate. It is large when inflated completely. Great product, great price!Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsLove the shape and color of the green ball, however the rubber had a strong chemical smell. Other than that I would have rated it a 5. FUN AND FUNCTION: Hi Roxanna, so sorry about that! The smell should go away within a few days. If it does not, please do not hesitate to contact us at sales at funandfunction dot com and we will take care of you :)Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsI bought the medium size peanut, which I thought would be a good size for my 8 year old but I should have bought the larger ball. My daughter has enjoyed bouncing on it and it is a good outlet for her excessive energy. When she says I'm bored I tell her to go bounce on her peanut - it just sounds like fun!Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsBoth of my son's love this item! It was a big birthday hit for my youngest son. He's had some leg problems due to having a funky crawl where he didn't use one leg at all. He limps a little. This ball has totally helped with his leg coordination. I like that both of our boy's get some exercise with this peanut. It was a little hard to blow up and storing isn't the easiest. Those are the only reasons I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsThis is a great item. My son with CP loves the green small peanut ball. His two brothers love to play on it as well. Its the perfect size and so durrable. When he grows out of this size I will be buying the next one. Works wonders.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsMy son loves this!!! very durable, now need to get 3 more for the other children, helps them roll and bounce, they all loved it, I will tell all my friends about it.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsMy son loves this peanut ball, this morning it was the first thing he did when he got up.

We just got it yesterday and they have aready used it many times.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsI love the peanut shape of the ball. It is easier to work with my child with the peanut shape. It is not too big and bundlesome. The middle of the peanut is easy for my child to lay on and it is easy to sit on and balance. My son loves it.Read MoreFun and Function Peanut BallsMy son was SO excited when this product was delivered. The item was sent to us very rapidly. Our pump was broken (boys!) and it was easy to blow up manually. He not only be-bops around the house with it, but also took it into the pool with him and giggled the entire 2 hours we were there. All the other residents commented on what a unique toy he had. I would highly recommend this item to any parent, especially if their child has sensory processing issues. Bravo!!Read More
