It's a rocketful of speed when players grab the Zoom Ball handles and let it rip! How long can you keep zooming back and forth? Features an extra long 18' cord!
Each player grips the two handles on his or her side of the Zoom Ball -- one in each hand -- so that your knuckles touch. Let the Zoom Ball rest against one player's handles.
Stand apart so that the cord is almost straight -- about 18 feet apart from each other. The player closest to the Zoom Ball starts by pulling his hands and arms apart. This will send the ball zooming toward your opponent who must send it back -- the same way -- before it touches their handles. Keep on zooming until one player lets it touch his hands OR isn't able to send the Zoom Ball back!
How many times can you and your partner send the Zoom Ball back and forth without stopping? Keep trying to beat your best record!
I was looking for this forever,I remember playing with this when I was a kid and loving it! I searched and found it under "Zoom Ball" I am so excited. I will be ordering one for my autistic nephew, my grandchildren and of course myself. I can't wait!
I am also a Physical Therapist. I work with children exclusively, and use this toy every single day! I wish it was still on the market, b/c parents are always asking me to get them one! It works on upper body and trunk strenthening, eye-hand coordination and so much more!
I used a zoom ball when I worked in Home Health as a physical therapist. Many families asked to borrow one--got the elderly to smile again and to like exercising. We could work on sitting alignment, breathing deeply, upper extremity strength, standing balance, endurance, ad infinitum. Besides, I kept hearing that the grandchildren would spend so much more time with their elders. Now I want to purchase some for use in a nursing home. :-(
It is unfortunate that this toy is no longer available from Pressman. As an Occupational Therapist, this is a great way to work on standing balance, eye-hand coordination, bilateral hand use, not to mention that it is fun. I hope that they look again at marketing this toy.
I used a Zoom Ball to help my son because he had trouble with some motor activities and zoom ball was recommended by this therapist.
As a 7th Grade Science teacher I use it in class to introduce and define automatic response to a stimulus. I usually pick 2 students who have never played the game and have the rest of my students observe their reactions to playing with zoom ball. The students have great fun and learn a lot. I usually have zoom ball in my room during the study of the Nervous system chapter and students are free to play zoom ball if they have any free time. Many students have been introduced to this game and love playing it. Sincerly Mrs. Ruth Steinbach
great for eye hand coordination, upper body strength and stability, kids love it! We use it during occupational and physical therapy activities with pediatrics. Kids love the high speed action. Kids these days dont get enough activities that encourage upper body muscles, but this activity takes care of that. Its also very durable and safe to play indoors if you have the space.
This 'toy' is an excellent therapeutic device for disabled children with muscular problems. Our 8 year old nephew has Cerebral Palsy and his therapist uses it in treatment. We are getting one for him for Christmas as he and his brother and sister love playing with it. I would recommend this for both fun and therapy.
