Both of these intrigue me, but I am unclear as to how they differ. I was in physical therapy for a few months and used a balance board, so I get some of its uses. But from an exercise perspective -- core strengthening, with toning and maybe a 10-15# weight loss as a goal... what do you think? I do have Zumba DVDs for cardio, and then other DVDs that I don't really use.

The Bosu is around $100 :( while the Reebok Balance Board is more like $15. Obviously I like the price of the cheaper one, but not sure which is better suited for the results I'm seeking.

Oh, and what about storage for either the bosu or balance board? Would kids ages 4-8 benefit more from one or the other... if I let them use it? lol
