Waboba, the makers of the ball that bounces on water, have introduced a new outdoor ball, this one for land. The Street Ball is a geometric oddity with many sides, so you don’t know where it will bounce! About the size of a tennis ball, it’s great for Wall Ball. Or bring it to the playground and see what it does.
$9.99. Ages 8+

Kids, tweens, and teens, can use it to perform different tricks, much like a yo-yo, except there are two strings to hold and the motion is horizontal, not vertical. While the central objects spin they draw lines of colored light, making a picture of whatever trick is being done. There are so many tricks to learn! Watch the video below for an introduction and an idea of some of the tricks that are possible:
