Rate this product

Buddy Balls are fun, plush balls that kids can toss back and forth for hours. During playtime they can be one of the most popular toys. Then at night, they can unzip and be turned into a snuggly stuffed animal that kids can sleep with all night. Use the same toy for all of your fun time needs. With a secret hiding place and soft plush, it is no wonder kids want all seven designs.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Buddy Balls is $19.99 plus $8.99 shipping, for a total price of $28.98.

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page:


  • Soft

    These are all soft and cuddly since they are made with high quality plush. This makes them safe for many ages, without any hard components save for the zipper.

  • Award Winning

    These toys have won awards for not only being a top fun top and a family friendly toy, but for being fun. Younger kids using these can improve their hand eye coordination by tossing around the toy in its ball form, without getting hurt. Then at night, they can cuddle up with their soft and squishy friend.

  • Use Any Time

    These toys, by their design, are perfect for sleep time, play time, or any time in between. You can unzip and zip up as often as you want.

  • Fun Extras

    When you order, you get a smaller toy too, so you are getting the kid sized stuffed animal and the smaller, five inch stuffed animal.

  • Two in One

    With this unit you get two toys in one. Such variety keeps kids interested, and gives them twice the fun for a single cost. It is even beneficial for kids who, for example, might still want to sleep with a teddy bear but do not want to be embarrassed about it. They can zip it into a ball when they are with friends.


  • 7 Styles

    There are seven fun styles from which to choose. You can give one of each to those kids you know will love them until they have the entire collection. Collect the fun blue dog, Sam the chocolate black bear, Max Honey Bear the brown bear, Lily Cream the white bear, the pink kitten, Dino, or the unicorn.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Washing

    There are no washing instructions on the website. However, it is a plush toy and as such, it stands to reason that you can wash it when it is the ball or the animal. Throw it in the washing machine with regular detergent on a gentle cycle and then let it air dry. This should remove any germs that might accumulate from the constant zipping and unzipping.

  2. Storage

    One of the nice things about this toy is that it doubles in storage if you are not currently changing it back and forth. Your kids can hide small objects inside the zipper compartment when it is in the form of a ball or the animal. Stuff things inside to take them to the park or when visiting a friends house, then you don't have to carry an extra object or a bag.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Zip

    Zip up the fun animal by shoving it back inside the center, then zipping it closed. Suddenly you have a ball to use.

  2. Unzip

    Unzip the zipper and hide things in the secret storage, or just turn it inside out again to reveal the ball, then back to the animal.


  • Age

    While there are no movable parts to this toy, it is best that you only give them as gifts for kids 2 years or older due to the zipper and the smaller ears / sewn paw prints. There is not as much of a choking hazard from the toy itself, but a hazard if kids put their heads inside of the toy zipper area without supervision. Those who want to purchase this toy for a child younger than the recommended age should play with the child whenever they have the toy, rather than leaving the child alone with it.
