Waboba: The Original Ball That Bounces on Water
#KeepLifeFun with Waboba!
One of our all-time, favorite summer toys is the Waboba, the original ball that bounces on water! Have you ever wondered where they name came from? Let’s break it down: WA (water) – BO (bouncing) – BA (ball) – pretty clever, right?
The original concept for a water bouncing ball came from a lightbulb moment on a summer day in Sweden in the 1980s. Inventory and founder, Jan von Heland, was playing frisbee in the water and noticed that the disk skimmed across the water like a stone when he threw it upside down. Twenty years later, he began testing prototypes – his first ball sank. After five years of trial and error, the world’s first water bouncing ball, the Waboba Ball, hit the market in 2005.
Since then, the Waboba Team has been working to perfect their products, constantly expanding their line to reach all ages and skill levels, for both land and water. Waboba has become a lifestyle – having fun, embracing your inner child, seeking adventure, staying active, and enjoying time with family and friends with the simplest toy – a ball – is what being a “Wabobian” is all about!
So, grab a few of your favorite Waboba balls, grab your friends and family, and remember to #KeepLifeFun! Make sure to share your adventures with the hashtag #HowDoYouWaboba and tag @waboba and @wonderworkstoys for the chance to win Wabobian of the Week!
