Shockball. Pass the parcel gets a 21st century sado-masochistic electro-shock makeover. Yep, we’re talking random zaps as you chuck the ‘hot potato’ at each other as fast as you can. If the shock doesn’t get you, the bruises from catching a hurtling projectile probably will. £16.95. [Via Me,My Coke & I]
Turn it on and then start throwing it to one another and at some random point in the all too near future, the person catching it will get zapped. You never know when it’s going to ‘go live’, so it turns catch on its head – instead of worrying whether or not you can catch the ball, now you’ll worry about what will happen if you catch the ball. This rubber-coated land mine has been the cause of lots of shrieks in the office – though oddly they seem to come before the person’s even caught the thing.
