"Swim, Sun, and Fun" Giveaway
I have always heard crazy stories about my Dad's childhood and how bad they were as kids having egg wars outside people's homes or snowball fights near businesses. But now having my own boys I understand something I never did before. Boys are a whole different level of craziness and energy!! Its just a natural thing for boys to competitive and aggressive at times.
What if you could take water balloon fights to the next level and make preparation that much easier? Well I've found a brand of water balloons that does exactly that and I knew I had to get my hands on these for the boys this Summer!! Hydro Toys®, part of the Blue Matrix Labs® family of brands, has created ZORBZ® "the first self-sealing water balloon in market".
ZORBZ’s balloons are made using their proprietary Insta-Seal™ technology which basically snap the balloons sealed shut once filled with water. ZORBZ make this Mom happy knowing they are made from 100% biodegradable latex (even though I still made my kids pick it up from around the yard).
Zorbz even carries a variety of other water balloon tools and toys which can create the ultimate fun in your backyard. Other accessories include the ZORBZ Combat Trigger Filler, Combat Shield, Combat Launcher, and Combat Power Pump. After thorough inspection, we determined how creatively the balloons were sealed. We also learned a few tricks which help seal faster as well as those (listed in the instructions) to avoid.
The instructions tell you to use cold water and of course the first water that came out of our hose was hot causing an epic fail with the balloons. We also learned that you definitely need to give the balloon a good snap up and down to achieve fast sealing. These are a blast and boy did the boys absolutely love them. So much in fact they wouldn't stop bugging me every day to bring more out. I had to finally hide them for fear of my computer coming under attack when outdoors watching them!
Cost/Available to purchase: $6.49 + 4.49 shipping ZORBZ Self-Sealing Water Balloons 100 Count
Recommendation: I think these are a bit costly for water balloons but of course they make life a lot easier. I will say we struggled quite a bit to get the hang of these so I would recommend following the instructions exactly the first time you use. I would also recommend waiting to fill them until you are ready for battle as they lose their sealing power after about 20 minutes sitting. These definitely provide a ridiculous amount of fun though.
Giveaway: Zorbz is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a 2 launchers and 2-100 pk of Zorbz Balloons to play with of their own!
