Fun Slinger is a unique outdoor toy allowing you to play games involving throwing and catching, using groundbreaking new technology. This involves a whistle ball attached to a racquet, which when you swing, lets go of the ball in the direction of the swing. The whistle ball is covered in foam to prevent damage to itself or to whatever it lands on. Furthermore, this toy enables you to throw the whistle ball extremely long distances.
The cost of Fun Slinger is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Fun Slinger at the discounted price of only $5.99 for a total price of $31.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buyfunslinger.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Fun Slinger and has taken down the website. Fun Slinger may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
One might wonder and worry about losing the device that is thrown such long distances. Of course, this is a valid concern, and as such, has already been address within the manufacturing of this product.
You don’t need to worry about losing the device once it has left your racquet and is possibly even out of sight. Once you throw it, the device that you throw using the racquet has a whistle ball built right into the device. Thus, its trajectory can easily be tracked, also preventing it from getting lost that easily.
Many-a-times, a device is made perfectly well to look at, but does not quite end up as something that is fit for use. That can be quite frustrating, because more than mere looks, one wants one’s device to be able to function as mentioned on the box and not just stay as a show-piece in one’s home.
Due to the fact that enormous thought and effort has gone into making this toy, you can rest assured that this toy has been perfectly well sculpted down to its every minute detail. It allows the whistle ball that you let loose off of the racquet to travel a huge distance of about 60 feet up in the sky while making a horizontal trajectory of around 200 feet.
When one buys such kind of a device, at times there are complicated accessories that have to be attached to the device in order to allow it to function as prescribed. There is a claw conveniently already attached to the racquet so that all you need to do is push the whistle ball into the claw. Once, that is done, you just swing it around in the direction you like the whistle ball to travel in.
The claw is totally fixed onto the racquet, so there is no need to worry about it flying off along with the whistle ball while the game is on.
Usually, one would imagine that the racquet of this kind of a toy would be built to just throw the whistle ball. Not always would one imagine anything else other than having to use one’s hand ( with gloves ) or another racquet or device to catch the whistle ball at the other end. However, that is not the case with Fun Slinger.
This toy has been specially built to be able to function as both, the device to throw and also catch, making it dual-purpose, rather than complicating things. The racquet has a net fixed into its frame that is specially built to catch the flying whistle ball even while running, with utmost easy and fun.
Usually, toys like this have a set of rules and instructions on how to play the game so that all players must abide by the gaming methodology prescribed within the instruction manual. However, this is not the case with Fun Slinger. This toy is made such that you are in full control of what you want to play and how exactly you want the game to be played.
Since this toy is so flexible in its use, it does not have any rules telling you how to play it. One just plays it making one’s own rules, like, say, using the rules of tennis, or anything else for that matter.
As such, one can choose to play a variety of games, from trying a bit of target practicing, to playing throw and catch with oneself. You can even play with a tennis ball in case you’ve lost or don’t want to use the whistle ball provided. Finally, you can even have two teams competing against each other while each team gets a chance to catch as many whistle balls the other team throws at them.
Unlike many outdoor games available in the market, there is no one way of enjoying this toy, regardless of whether you’re a child or an adult.
If you have a friend along, then you can very comfortable also play with each other. You can take turns to demonstrate your expertise in shooting the whistle ball in different styles and lengths down a field, for example, passing the device back and forth to each other.
If you are in the company of several of your friends or family members, then you could even choose to play against each other as part of different teams. By doing so, you can showcase all of your tricks and stunts with the toy while the other team watches in awe.
With Fun Slinger, as the name suggests, using it is an absolute thrill. It’s like your arm strength becomes as much as a javelin thrower with merely this device in your possession. Furthermore, the colors are so vibrant, yet pleasant on the eye, that it perhaps tops up your energy levels, possibly your whistle ball even further away than it would have normally travelled.
Usually games of this nature might not be suitable for children due to potentially dangerous edges, weight of the device, etc. This restriction can at times spoil the fun when parents and children want to play together rather than under constant supervision.
With this in mind, the manufacturers of Fun Slinger ensured it was fit for purpose right down to the last letter of the word. As such, it can be used equally enjoyably by children and adults. Thus, it can quite easily and conveniently serve as a fantastic, all-in-one picnic game when out with family, friends and kids, without worrying about everyone's preferences.
You place the whistle ball into the claw built into the aerodynamic racquet. Then, swing the racquet and point in the direction you want the whistle ball to go in, and it will travel extremely far. While travelling it leaves a trail of sound heard by the person at the other end who can use the net within the same version of their racquet to catch the whistle ball.
