Cool Toy of the Day: Bumper Balls


As you can imagine, I get a lot of emails from manufacturers that want us to sell their product. Most of them are items manufactured in China that are blow our standards. But every so often one catches my attention.

That was the case with Bumper Balls. They look very cool. They are large, inflatable balls that you crawl into. Your legs are left free to "run" around. Once you are set, you can roll around and crash into each other. Just like bumper cars, only with balls.

At first glance, it seems a bit dangerous to be encased in what is essentially a large, inflated, plastic bag. But it’s open at the top and there seems to be some sort of slots in the center to allow air circulation. I’d have to be concerned if one pops, though.

Obviously, they are best for large, open areas, and more of a party situation. They are also a bit costly. I found them on one site for $300.00 (plus $150.00 shipping from Hong Kong). I can’t quite figure out if this is for a set or just one.

Parental warning: Don’t search for "Bumper Balls" on Amazon when there are children around. Trust me.

In any case, they are very cool.

I had a bit of trouble linking to their video since the page is all in Chinese, but I eventually figured it out below. I’ve also included a video from YouTube in case the first one stops working. You can see the original page here.
