HI BOUNCE BALL – 45MM POOL BALL
The Hi Bounce Ball is a great filler-gift that you get to create and then play with!
They’re fun and they bounce super high! Bouncy balls were invented in 1965 by a man named Norman Stingley. He was a chemist who worked full time with the Bettis Rubber Company and loved to tinker with ideas during his spare time. Most scientists working for a company would be hesitant to work on any research because their employer would hold a right of first refusal. Not Stingley. When his employer told him that they didn’t want the invention, Stingley went to Wham-O and after some refinement, it became an instant hit.
Wham-O had decided to call the invention the SuperBall and for good reason: if you bounced it hard enough, you could make the ball go about three stories high! As the story goes, Lamar Hunt saw his daughter playing with a SuperBall one day. As the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs at the time, there were a number of ideas being bantered about as a way to combine the NFL and the AFL. One of the ideas was to have a championship game between the two leagues.
Price is inclusive of one Hi Bounce Ball only.
