PHLAT BALL V3
by Tucker Toys USA at 75Volts
$29.90 (4 to 6 years)
Throw a disc and catch a ball. This unique toy guarantees hours of entertainment in the sun. To start the game, you flatten it into a disc and then, when you throw it, the disc pops into a large ball. The ball can easily be flattened back into a disc shape for the next round of play. The most exciting part, however, is the element of surprise involved: Thanks to the patented time delay release, one can never be sure when the disc will transform.
BAZAAR LOVES IT
Our judges and their families loved the surprise factor that came with the Phlat Ball. Both parents and children whooped with glee as they tried to gure out whether they would catch a ball or a disc. It also won extra points for being made of phthalates-free soft materials, and the fact that it can be de ated to a disc and tucked into a beach bag on day trips.
