lazy person’s snowball maker

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

This thing cracks me up. It's a snowball maker. Instead of using your hands to pack snow together and ball, it acts like a ice cream scooper. I can't imagine that this would work that well though.  And probably as much work as two hands trying to create a snowball. But I'll never know, since I don't have one of these. And because in NYC, we haven't seen much snow yet. I think I'm more disappointed we haven't had that much snow, than not knowing how well this thing works or not. [via: Amazon - Sno-Baller - $5.95]

as a kid, another thing i loved was Voltron! and in the last year or so I've seen re-dos of voltron stuff like the toys  and more t-shirts, etc. now there's something new:  The green and blue ones look cool. I'm not so sure about the black, red or yellow ones. [via: Uncrate - $80-$135 ...
