You know Waboba only brings you the coolest toys. In case you haven’t heard, one of the toys we endorse is TOSY AFO. It’s only available in the United States, but since its arrival, it has won Good Housekeeping’s Best Kids Toy award as well as made an appearance on David Letterman last night. Check out the clip here and skip to 28:22.
TOSY AFO will soon be available on Amazon.com. In the meantime, please email Aubrey to find out if TOSY is available in a retail store near you. If it’s not, be sure to ask your local toy store to get it so they don’t miss out on the coolest new toy to hit the shelves!
If you’re like me, you grew up playing the awesome game of wall ball. It’s a staple of many childhood memories. But regardless of age, it’s still a great game to play, especially nowadays with our Street ball.
The other week I went to check out an area on James Island, SC that has a bunch of really amazing and talented graffiti artwork by The Sheepman on the back of a huge warehouse building. It made me think, these would be great walls for the Street ball! So now, I’m on a mission to find really wicked, cool walls all around the world for us to play a game of wall ball on. Graffiti walls are much more visually appealing than plain brick walls. Check out some below and visit our Pinterest board for more. Don’t hesitate to share your own findings!
Suggested Age: 7+ Waboba Used: Pro, Extreme, or Surf Players: Groups of 10 How to Play:
• Assign 5 players to re-create the Olympic rings each holding a pool noodle*.
• The other 5 players have to bounce the Waboba through the rings to score. 2 throws per player.
o 1 point – bounce through any bottom ring.
o 2 points – bounce through any top ring.
o 3 points – bounce through any verbally predicted ring
• Once all 5 players have thrown, they switch places with the ring holders so they have a chance to score.
• The group with the most accumulative points wins.
*Players holding the noodle must be made aware of the incoming Waboba!
Increase number of rings and/or decrease distance from rings Increase Challenge
Restrict the number of bounces the Waboba can make and/or increase distance from rings.
Last week, I traveled to Washington, DC to film a video with American Parkour using our new Moon ball (coming in 2012). If you’re not sure what parkour is, they are the guys that make climbing walls, free-running, and doing flips look easy. Basically, they are awesome and tons of fun to play with. It was freezing cold outside, but we rocked it. So until we release the vid, enjoy this ridiculous cool picture from when Travis jumped from one roof to another while chasing after the super high bouncy Moon ball.
