The Easter Bunny put together a fun basket this year—one of the highlights was the red ball tucked inside. The Easter Bunny might have found those balls at Target (near his warren, of course) but didn't realize just how fun they would be. Their labels claimed they could bounce 75 ft; better the red balls than the children hopped up on Easter candy.
We've played with those balls (Sky Balls, to be exact) more since Easter than just about anything else. They're fun. No, really fun. They seem to bounce better above 50º (it's been easy to test this in Cheyenne this "spring") but that hasn't stopped us from taking them outside as much as possible. These pictures are from yesterday, when it was above 50º... well, in the direct sunshine, at least.
They're made by a company in Youngstown, OH named Maui Toys. As it turns out, Sky Balls are just one of their many products. The Easter Bunny should really check out their entire catalog!
And, because they have such a high bounce factor, she's getting the hang of bouncing and catching, too, because the ball bounces up to her hand level so easily. Less chasing after a ball = less frustrated Bee.
Gratuitous picture of pigtailed cutie two-and-a-half year old jumping. She has little Addie Cooper to thank for her fixed-up hair; enough with this tinker-chic she's been getting away with lately.
So here is the point of this story: we're having so much fun with these Sky Balls that I decided to ask Maui Toys if they'd be willing to sponsor a little giveaway here and donate one to three lucky winners. They said yes! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered. Comments will be closed around 12 pm MT on Tuesday, and I'll post the three winners shortly thereafter. Thanks to Maui Toys for their generosity and willingness to answer emails from crazy bloggers in Wyoming! : )
