It’s spring. That means lawn-watering prohibitions are loosening up, temperatures are rising and the kids already are getting antsy for new games to play outdoors.
Good thing Banzai Aqua Blast Volleyball ‘n Limbo is around. In one package, the kid-friendly game can make use of that water you’d use to water the lawn anyway, cool the kids off when they become overheated and give the young’uns a way to burn off some excess energy.
Hook the gadget up to an outdoor hose. Then, direct the water spray from the horizontal bar upward and kids can play volleyball with a liquid net. When they’re tired of that, just turn the pole over to create a wet, fun limbo bar. (You’ll have to explain that whole limbo thing to them, though.)
The set includes two plastic bases, two plastic upright poles, an adjustable plastic pole and one inflatable volleyball. The whole shebang will set you back $19.99.
