NEW YORK, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Human Bowling Ball, a bowling game that converts players into a rolling bowling ball that knocks down 5'-tall pins.

Players enter the 7'-diameter inflatable ball and run to propel it forward down the inflatable lane, generating momentum to topple the six foam pins. The transparent ball allows bowlers to keep their eye on the pins and its zipper cinch keeps the ball closed yet enables players to enter and exit quickly.

"The Human Bowling Ball allows one of the world's most popular games to be played in one's backyard and on a Brobdingnagian scale," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The included air blower keeps the 3'-high lane bumpers inflated and to an optimal firmness that helps keep careening bowlers on target to score strikes or splits. Made from rip- and tear-resistant vinyl, The Human Bowling Ball and all of the game's components will withstand years of play and resist mold and fading.

The Human Bowling Ball is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $4,500. For more information about this product, please visit http://www.hammacher.com/12120 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
