I was in a pet shop in town today and I could not beleive the price of the noseballs. The 10" are now £22.50!!!

When I bought my first one it was only £12 and my noseball was not much dearer

petplanet had the large one dor about £13 last time I looked. I could do with another noseball but they dont seem to be in business anymore

They have not had any in stock for ages and I emailed them a while ago and they never responded so I think they have gone as well.

Such a shame as they seem to be in demand

Real shame about the noseball. I think they had a problems with the material they used and manufacturing. Such a shame they don't respond to anyone though and just say so.

I have seen boomer balls on Ebay for for £70 or more - I don't get it!

The boomer balls come in a couple of sizes and are available in pet shops. Nose balls were only available on line from one store which appears to have ceased trading. I found the boomer balls were a lot heavier than the nose balls
Reuben loves his nose ball and can get quite obsessed with it and i have to put it away or he would run with it until he drops

WCF do a 8 inch one for 14.99 and it seems a softer material than Dell's bigger hard one.
Dell loves his but he makes such a noise with it.

Dell used to have a smaller boomer ball and he shredded it so..
I'd say go for a bigger hard proper noseball.

Nose balls are a nightmare to get now. We have one and a large boomer ball which has been ok, prefer the nose ball though
