Its pliable material means that you can catch it easily and painlessly by squishing it in your hand. It also folds up and pops back into shape after being stored in your pocket or beach bag.
Get in the loop!
Pindaloo is the ultimate skill toy, and it makes an awesome beach activity! This fun game is simple to learn — all you have to do is loop the ball from one side of the tube to the other. Oh, did we say simple? Don’t worry, though — with a little practice, you’ll be a Pindaloo pro! This is a great indoor/outdoor game, so even after summer is over, you can keep learning new tricks!
Hit the target!
Beachball? Nope! Now it’s all about dodgeball! Kids will love this fun, two-player twist on an old gym class classic. Put on one of the adjustable velcro vests, pick up a soft red ball, and take aim! Try to hit your opponent on the circular target — if you hit the target, the ball will stick. Buy multiple sets to get the whole family involved. Duck, dive, and dodge!
Let’s go fly a kite
You already know how to train your dragon, so now you can bring it to the beach! Assemble this lightweight glider in just two simple steps and then send it soaring, up to 80 feet. With an 18-inch wingspan, your dragon will be the belle of the beach ball! Best of all, this dragon is sturdy and durable — it can bounce back from crash landings again and again. Amazing!
Watch out for sharks
Ever wondered what’s lurking below the waves? See the wonders of the underwater world with these cool shark-themed swimming goggles! The anti-fog technology makes them perfect for underwater viewing, and the polarized lenses offer 100% UV protection. The flexible silicone frame is comfortable and durable. Absolutely splash-tastic!
I spy with my little eye
See all the way across the beach or out to sea with these top-quality binoculars. They feature robust rubber armor and 10x magnification — maybe you’ll be able to spot a shark’s fin! They’re lightweight and come with a carrying case, so they’re easy to bring along for a day of seaside spying adventures. A great gadget!
What’s more fun than a game of soccer on the sand? Foooty is an innovative DIY soccer ball. Just follow the instructions to interlock the pieces together and create your very own 6-inch diameter football, ideal for practicing tricks. The flat-pack design means it easily folds up and can be taken anywhere you go. You can also use the Foooty pieces to create a frisbee or juggling balls. Sandy soccer genius!
Launch rockets into space on the beach? Sounds like fun! Connect the parts to build a fantastic launcher. Then jump with all your might onto the blast-off pad. The glowing rocket will go shooting into the sky, up to 100 feet! The harder you land, the higher it’ll fly! And coolest of all, it’s glow in the dark — perfect for night-time beach parties. Blast off!
