I grew up with the Slinky (remember the catchy tune "a Slinky, a Slinky fun for a girl and a boyl!") and throughout the years, they have expanded their line of toys and Poofs fall under the Slinky brand umbrella.
Poofs are balls made out of sponge and or foam and they do come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The particular Poof that we have is called the Aqua Bomb and it provides hours of fun for children and adults. We have named our Aqua Bomb "Dude" as he is purple, has a goofy smile, and has the biggest white eyes! During the fall and winter, we play with "Dude" indoors as a regular ball but in the summer, watch out because "Dude" comes to life when we goes outside!
Once you immerse the Aqua Bomb in water and throw it, prepare to be drenched! For a four inch ball, this certainly soaks in a lot of water and the spray radius is pretty long the harder your throw it.
We received our Poofs as gifts but they start around $4.49 for a set of two. This is an inexpensive way to have summertime fun-especially if you do not have access to a swimming pool!
