So I'm sorta torn on if they are really a good idea or not, especially after Jagger developed a related OCD issue.
Riley has both the large plastic jolly ball and the egg - he prefers the ball and while he loves to knock it all around the yard, he's not obsessed with it. If I'm not there to toss it or play soccer with it and him, it sits in the yard and he ignores it.
