If there were a 2009 version of A Christmas Story, Ralphie would be begging for a WHAM-O Snowball Blaster…because of course, toy guns are just too controversial. This thing is cool nonetheless and after a long afternoon of shoveling, we wouldn’t mind having one to rev up the fun on snow days. Oh, back to the kids. The device is designed to both make and launch snowballs, by simply inserting snow into the top cavities and pressing down. Within seconds, the Blaster will compress the snow into three tightly packed snowballs and shoot them up to 80 feet.
