Snowball Blaster – because throwing is just too good for ’em


The Wham-O Snowball Blaster is one of those epoch defining products that so rarely cross our desk. I mean, we’re talking about a product which will launch snowballs 50 feet from your hand. So much better to cause havoc from a distance, doncha think? Now if only they could come up with a smart guided cruise version. $29.95.

 This toy blaster makes and launches softball-sized snowballs up to 50′, allowing rapid, long-range assaults during neighborhood snowball confrontations. Simply place snow in the forming chamber and close the lid; it packs three perfectly spherical snowballs. To blast your mark, place one snowball in the muzzle, aim the launcher, and pull back the slingshot mechanism. Because the blaster is powered by elastomers instead of batteries, it provides uninterrupted, fast-action play.

  • My 56th birthday is Monday and considering the condition of my shoulders, I would like 2 please. 1 for each hand. I have a bunch of grandchildren and live up North.

  • Looks like an alternative use would be to create your own snowball treats. Just drizzle flavored syrup over the snowballs and send them long distance. "Here's a rasberry in your face Johnny!" >Spatt!<
