About Junk Ball:
In 2005, LKI Toys launched the award-winning and popular brand of backyard sports toys, Junk Ball®. The original Junk Ball baseball takes traditional backyard baseball to a new level with its aerodynamic design that makes it easy to learn how to throw all kinds of “junk” pitches including curves, fastballs, sinkers, risers, sliders, even knuckle balls. The Junk Ball brand has grown to include a complete line of backyard and indoor sports toys including: Junk Ball Baseball Bat and Ball set, Junk Ball Home Run Challenge, Junk Ball Knockers tailgating game, and Junk Ball Sky Slasherz. In 2010, Junk Ball launched a line of backyard baseball products featuring Major League Players Association and Minor League Baseball team licenses. Junk Ball most recently launched Hall Star Sports, a new line of safe indoor sports toys, designed to bring outdoor play indoors.
Little Kids sent us an awesome set of outdoor fun toys to test out from their huge line of unique bubble toys, as well as a Junk Ball bat. I never thought I’d be saying this, but I must be getting old… they never had anything cool like this when I was growing up! I love how they have products that are easy enough for kids to use who love bubbles, but can’t quite master the “blowing” part of it yet. Kids can still interact with the toys, and have the satisfaction of “making” bubbles, without having to know how to blow them properly.
The Big Bubble Friends is one great example, where you just pull back the head and out come the bubbles! Bubble Flashlight is probably our favorite, because you can play in the dark (or semi-dark) and still have lots of great bubble fun. Bubble Wand is always a crowd pleaser because it makes such big bubbles, and the Bubble Vehicle adds the whole moving aspect to it.
Junk Ball is a line I hadn’t heard of until now, but Brandon is totally into baseball so I’m sure we’ll be buying lots of it. They have a great lineup of products that are indoor and outdoor safe. The bat and ball set is really cool because you can customize the bat with the stickers that come with it.
With these 5 toys, your kids (and all their friends) will be busy for quite a while! :) Here are the product descriptions and photos:
