The Waboba Moon is a small step for Waboba and a giant bounce for Wabobians and retailers everywhere. This hard-to-miss yellow and black ball is "cratered" to resemble the surface of the moon.  But those geometric contours are more than just aesthetic, creating  the Moon's crazy, gravity-defying characteristics that turn a routine game of bounce and catch into an out of this world free-for-all on a playground, skate park, gym court or basement. The Moon is the evolution of the Waboba Street, the company's first land-based ball that emulates the unpredictable paths of the on-water game. The Moon offers a faster, higher, and bouncier flight path than its predecessor and is a natural step-up for those who have mastered the throwing technique developed with the Street. At a bargain suggested retail price of $5.99, the new Waboba Moon is sure to bounce off store shelves.

Catch the Big One! The Big Kahuna is Waboba's newest--and largest--most versatile water bouncing ball. The bigger circumference slows down the ball's speed, making it perfect for indoor and outdoor pools as well as open water or puddle play. At four-inches in diameter, the Big Kahuna is easier to catch and grip, especially in smaller hands, which is great for skill development for youngsters and new players of any age. At a suggested retail price of just $7.99, the Big Kahuna is sure to make a big splash at retail.

And since spring signifies a new beginning, Waboba is giving a fresh look to its favorites, with the  Waboba Blast (yellow, orange, blue), Surf (blue/yellow, blue/pink, blue/green), Extreme (grey/orange, grey/magenta, grey/turquoise Hawaiian floral pattern) , and Pro (black/red, black/blue, black/purple Hawaiian floral pattern) now available in an assorted-color three-pack. Excellent for the Wabobian who wants the latest and greatest in water bouncing balls!
