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!
