Smak A Ball is a fun ball game that lets you smack a ball out of a ring to launch it, then catch it. You can make a normal game of ball playing more exhilarating by snatching the ball out of the air with what seems like magic. Playing by yourself is simply, as you can just smack the ball up and away, then go catch it. With a group you can benefit too, so long as they have the fun rings for catching and smacking.
The cost of Smak A Ball is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Smak A Ball by paying an extra fee of $6.99 for a total price of $33.97.

It is made out of plastic.
You can use this game even if you have no athletic ability. It is perfect for all levels of athletic ability. What’s more, you can play with a small group, by yourself, or in a large group and never hinder the game.
It only weighs about one pound, so taking it with you on the go is simple. When it is all deflated and folded, transportation is a breeze.
You must first inflate the balloons. Then, you place the balloon inside of the ring. While holding the ring in one hand, you can smack the balloon as hard as you can, which generates the same force as throwing a ball but with less effort. Once the ball is in the air you can catch it with your ring and then toss it back to someone else.
Comparatively, there are some similar games, like blown up balloon balls that are the same big size and can be tossed around. Other versions have hoops or netted gloves that you can use to catch larger inflatable balls. However, none really are designed precisely like this, with the unique ability to launch, or smack, the ball out into the air. With this unit you can catch a ball one-handed.
You get to fully extend your body to catch the ball without needing to be a top athlete. Whether you are left handed or right handed, you can get moving. Inspire children to get off the couch and play. Go play in the park, while in the pool, in a home rec room, or just in your backyard. When not in use, the toys break down for easy storage. All of the materials used are soft so they will not cause injury. Learn how to do tricks on your own, play monkey in the middle, or make a fun team game out of it. In fact, this game can be used to teach fundamentals to children as part of occupational therapy. Crossing over from a toy to a sport, you can build up your hand-eye coordination, catch underhand or overhand, and more.
It is just a game, and while the company highlights that more than one person can play, you would have to buy more than one ring in order to allow other people to play. This can get quite costly especially if you have a large family.
While the game can be played individually or in a group, it nonetheless is just one style or type of game. You cannot really make it into other games.
There are small parts which means this unit is not suitable for children under the age of three. Children under the age of eight can suffocate or choke on any un-inflated parts or broken balloons. Balloons which are un-inflated should be kept away from children. Broken balloons should be discarded immediately. Adult supervision is required at all times for children under these ages.
