SuperBalls and Doodletops

We’ve added a couple of nifty products to our line. The first has been a classic since the late 60’s but is still a popular item to this day. We speak of course, of the SuperBall

Superball

The Superball is famous for being about as close to 100% energy return when you bounce it as you can get (nothing is truly 100% energy efficient).  When you bounce the Superball, it returns almost as high as the point from which you dropped it. This means when you throw it it will bounce around like crazy, taking a long time to lose energy and slow down compared to other rubber balls. Many imitation ‘superballs’ are around, but this is the original, made by Wham-O and made of Zectron. It is also larger than most ‘superballs’, being almost 1-1/2″ across.

The Superball is also credited for naming the famous title game of the NFL, the SuperBowl. A story they proudly print on the Superball’s packaging.

The next toy in house is the Doodletop

DoodleTop

The concept behind the Doodletop is simple – put a pen at the tip point of a spinning top and let it draw! The pen is replaceable, and unlike some early versions the Doodletop actually works! Drawing paper is, of course, not included.

Happy bouncing and happy drawing!
