A great alternative to round, bouncy balls if you want to play catch with your under-5, who might not have the world’s greatest hand-eye co-ordination and might tire of a game if it involves a lot of running-and-getting of bouncy balls.

Beanbags have a nice squishy feel, they are easy to catch and land solidly without rolling or bouncing away.

This set of four is only £2.93 from Amazon. Catch!
