With summer sizzling in full swing, it’s a great time to peel your inner geek away from the computer screen, slather on some sunscreen, and go outside to play. Here are our top picks for getting out in the sun and having a good time. And remember – everything includes free shipping!
- Ogosport Mezo Disks – A floatable, portable, durable and flexible game that helps relieve stress by bouncing balls up to 150 feet off mini trampolines.
- Rollors – Position the big wooden pyramids and roll your Rollors toward the goals.
- Beamo – Takes playing with flying disks to the next level. Beamo is a giant, soft version of a Frisbee that’s easier to throw and catch and we think it’s a lot of fun.
- Kiwido – Dancing with ribbons was never so fun. Practice the ancient performance art of Poi with Kiwido. Grasping the string or connected ball, manipulate the ribbons into arcs and patterns by swinging your arms in various motions.
- Kendama – This wooden skills toy is made up of a ball connected by a string to a handle with three cups and a spike. The object of Kendama is to juggle, spike and balance the ball in creative new ways.
- Spooner Board – This virtually indestructible balance board lets you safely replicate your favorite board sports on any surface. The Today Show agrees this is a top summer pick.
- Kikbo – Best described as a Hacky Sack with feathers, Kikbo is similar to a game that’s been kicked around by kids in Asian countries for centuries.
- Pongo – This portable and decidedly retro chic ping pong set features a weighted net so you can set up a game on any smooth surface, no mounting necessary.
