Frisbee, Hula Hoop, Slip’N Slide, Super Ball. What do these items all have in common ? They are all timeless classics. These simple toys have held their own in a toy market filled with electronics. The Wham-O company must be doing something right. Founded in 1948 the company has come up with both the timeless classics and some off the wall fad products.
I am sure one or two Wham-O products will be opened by my grandchildren on Christmas day, as they have by my children and myself as a child.
I was recently asked if I would like to review one of the products and jumped at the chance. I was sent the Pop Bang Blaster. From the minute it was taken out of the package it was a toss up as to who had more fun with it, the kids or the adults. To be honest I wasnt sure why they were advertising this as an outdoor toy. Then when it was shot the first time I realized the balls went further then I expected. This like so many of the Wham-O toys is very simple had given hours of entertainment. The thing I like the best about it is that if you lose one of the balls you can replace it with any ping-pong ball. So many toys are made so that nothing but their product fits, and then they way over charge for the replacement. The targets are made of thin cardboard so you may find yourself making more to replace ripped ones, or you may do as the little guy has done and use it without the targets.
I would highly suggest you check out the Wham-O website when searching for gifts this Holiday Season. Who knows, you may just connect with your inner child. I sure did.
I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting.
I did receive product or services to keep for my testing purposes
