The latest in snowball fighting gear

You’ve heard me talk about our New Brunswick winter; tons of snow and cold beyond your wildest imagination. Lord, last week as part of the weather reports we were advised to keep our dogs and cats indoors. That’s cold!

So how do we combat the winter blues with all this cold and white stuff? Well, some people downhill ski. Some go show shoeing. There’s always ice skating. Or…one of my personal and all time favs, snowball fights!

Snowball fights are like dodgeball played outside with snowballs. And we take our snowball fights pretty seriously. We build massive snow forts to hide behind as we plan our snow attacks with tactical military precision. It’s a hoot!

Well, this year I found the latest and greatest in snowball fighting weaponry that’s going to ensure my team’s success on the winter field.  First, meet the snowball slingshot!

This bad boy will take my snowball throws to a completely new level. It’ll hurl my white fluffy balls of pain an amazing 60 feet giving me a real edge against the competition! All I do is place a softball-sized snowbullet into the slingshot’s muzzle, draw the handle back and release it, which then launches the snowball. With technology like this, I am guaranteed many more withdrawals and surrenders.

And get this, it will also allow me to engage in indirect fire opportunities, such as shooting over the crest of a hill. They won’t even SEE me coming! How insane is that!?!?!

But wait. This only allows me to load one snowball at a time. What if I am in the midst of an onslaught attack from the enemy and I need more fire power?!?! What if I have to go on foot and need to be prepared for MUCH more fire power.

That’s when I break out the big guns! Meet, the snowball launcher!

Grrrowwwwllll!!! This beast makes and blasts softball-sized snowballs up to 50 feet AND allows for a rapid, long-range assault. I just load my snowballs in the forming chamber, close the lid and now I’m locked and loaded packing 3 snowballs of destruction. 

Imagine hubby and I armed and dangerous with this kind of snow weaponry. Him with the slingshot, me with the launcher. With such distance potential, we’ll have the opportunity to dive bomb the neighbors with a snow fiesta while hiding neatly away in bushes or behind lamp poles. They’ll have no idea what or who hit them…eeekee…hubby and I will rule our snow laden neighborhood!

For only $39.95 US plus shipping, you can order your snowball slingshot here and for 29.95 US plus shipping, you can order your snowball launcher here. Now you can join me in becoming king of the hill.

And of course, the both products comes with the Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee so if it sucks, for any reason, we can return it for exchange, credit, or refund. Eeekeeee…love that!

Any snowball fight stories to share with us? What’s your technique? What do you do to make an unfavorable season pass by faster?

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

  • Poor Myndi Shafer is on the brink of pregnancy insanity. Ok, let’s be serious, she’s leapt over the edge. I feel for her but…couldn’t help laughing hysterically at her post about it. OMG. Reason 10028485 why I will never become pregnant or have children. LOL!
  • You’ve all read my posts on my battle with jeans last year. Well, Paige Kellerman outdid herself with a RIOT of a post on the value of high-waisted slacks. I nearly hyperventilated I laughed so hard. Long live high-waisted slacks!

  1. Oh, Natalie, as a Newfoundlander, I can relate to winters. Girl, I gotta get me some of that weaponry. :)

  2. Wow, Natalie. These tools look way dangerous. Assault weapons for snow play. We have wicked lake effect snow in my area and that stuff packed in these bad boys will produce ice balls. I could knock someone out. Hmm… (scanning back up tip checkout the launcher). Heh.

  3. Who ever heard of snowball weaponry? amazing. mind you, at -40 today, it’s too cold in Calgary to be outside. Even my pooches, who love the snow are dashing in and out.

  4. Darn you, usually I don’t miss the snow… It’s been 5 or 6 years since I had a snowball fight (not counting the baby wipes snowball fight of ’07, LOL)

    • Baby wipes snowball fight of 07 – LMAO!!! Now that’s a story that needs telling!!
      Girl, I wish I could miss the snow from far…very far!! LOL!!

      • LOL, it is what happens when four young boys hear nothing but snow stories from their friends back home after just moving to the desert. (I think it was about 80 degrees at the time here.) Improvisation baby, it’s all about the improvisation :) The scrapbook journaling I wrote up at the time is much funnier than a single sentence but I can’t put my hands on it at the moment. I’d post a picture but am trying to keep them out of my online life.

  5. Oh yeah. If I could just get my brother to come for a visit…payback, baby, payback.

  6. Ha! Where was that bad boy snowball blaster
    when I was a kid?? Next winter trip to Minnesota, I’m all over it. :)

  7. 71 degrees in southeast Texas right now. My kids wish we had snow, though.

  8. Well I’ll never live in a place that gets snow (I’d freeze to death), so this will just have to work its way into a story somehow. ;-)

    • I am so jealous Angela – enjoy your warmer climate. Snow isn’t that fun. I mean, we have to beat each other with balls of it just to try and get over living with it. LOL!!! I will say, hubby and I try our darndest to make the best of it but we both much prefer warmer weather!

      • Hehe, not that much warmer. We’ve had freezing temperatures the last couple nights. I used to like the idea of snow, but when I visited a friend in Spokane in January, I learned that it’s really only a winter wonderland at the first fall. Then people drive in it and it becomes brown slush. Not all that pretty. Oh, and the skidding and missing your turn so you don’t lose control of the car…don’t need that either!

        • Oh yes, it’s only pretty for a very short period of time and then it’s brown and ugly. LOL!! And the DRIVING – don’t even get me started. It’s why I am happy to pay the gas bill every month for my 4X4 truck with studded winter tires!! Honestly, I’d take even a little warmer without the amount of white stuff we got. LOL!!

  9. Awesome, Natalie. I want one. I bet my kids will think twice about that old get-er-as-she-comes-out-of-the-garage trick. :)

  10. Elena Aitken says:

    That is awesome!! Sadly, we don’t get a ton of the ‘good’ snow here. Yes, we get snow, and yes, it’s cold. BUT…it’s mostly that dry-won’t stick together stuff.
    However..that is an awesome toy. I’d love to try one!

  11. Just one thing … may I please be on your team?

  12. We don’t even get snow and I want one! That looks like so much fun. I might have to pick them up just so we can go to the snow! My family would fear me. Beware the snow launcher extraordinaire! Mwuahahahahahahaa!!!!

  13. Coleen Patrick says:

    A snowball slingshot! Love it. Now if only we’d get some snow, so far not a flake . . .

  14. Hubby is shooting birds in the summer and you’re shooting snowballs in the winter! Yikes!

    Is there a theme happening here or what? But your shooter sounds like more fun! :)

  15. Like I told you on Twitter, you’ve gotta use that to hit Hubby in the Spank Bank Vault if he gets out of line. Girl Snowball POWER!!!! Woot-Woot!

Don't be shy...tell me what you think
