I love basic good old fashioned toys like balls. However, as a modern grandma I also love old fashioned toys with a new twist and I like to write about them. Two years ago I wrote about Skyball. Skyball is filled with helium which makes it bounce really high. It gives the ball an extra punch for extra fun. Read my review which includes a picture of me playing a game that was easier to play… lets just say a long time ago. Read it here.
Now, Maui Toys has introduced the Sky Football. It is a winner too. Also filled with helium it has an extra bouce and flys through the air with extra power. Instead of raking leaves on this beautiful Sunday afternoon, I was out in the yard with my grandson and family playing football with the skyball.
The package says ages 6 and up but really any age can enjoy the sky football. My grandson is three and I was impressed watching Zach and his Dad, Josh, play with it. Here a few of my favorite pics.
Playing Sky Football is a great way to experience old fashioned fun with a new spin. Give it a try.
Skyball is made by Maui Toys, a company founded in the 80’s so it is not a company known to those of us of “grandparent age.” The Sky Football is a "souped up" version of a good old fashioned football and I highly recommend it. There are several varieties of Skyballs – all reasonably priced – and they are available at all the major stores that sell toys. You can also order directly from Amazon below.
So...go outside and play ball with the grandkids.
