Do You Remember - The Super Ball

Do you remember the Super Ball? The Super Ball was about the size and color of a plum and for those of us old enough to remember they were super fun!

Just six months after it was introduced by Wham-O in 1965, seven million balls had been sold at ninety-eight cents apiece. Incredible! Wham-O gave the bulletized balls a big promotional send-off and they caught on right away. Adolescent boys and girls discovered them first, but grown-ups were soon buying them, too. I was very, very young at the time and I remember my dad bringing home the Super Ball. Soon after that all the kids in the neighborhood had one! Man they could bounce and we were not allowed to play with them in the house! Mom considered them an "outdoor" toy!

Ahh...memories! Do you remember the Super Ball?
