Batter's Up with the New Batapult

It's a new take on the traditional baseball bat, incorporates a hinge in the middle of the bat which creates a pivoting action during the swing, sending the ball flying up 200 feet.

The design of Batapult brings a new experience to the game of baseball as well as creates the same striking force as a standard bat but with half the effort. Children ages 6 and up can use the bat's catapulting action to strike the ball and send it flying up to 200 feet. Batapult is constructed of durable plastic and comes with a dimpled polyethylene foam ball.

Since the hinging action happens above the handle, children don't need to be as strong to swing the bat because some of the strain is alleviated, making it easier.

Zip, Zap, Zoom Away with the New AeroZipp Disk 

This is a disk launcher that sends flying disks over 175 feet whistling as they glide through the air.

AeroZipp Disk is a flying disk launcher

for children ages 6 and up that can launch disks over 175 feet. The disks are made of a flexible, pliable plastic with a whistle chamber built in so they whistle as they glide. The disks can be throw back and forth between players by hand or using the AeroZipp Disk launcher.

Another key feature of the AeroZipp Disk is the "Launch Activator", a trigger that sets the AeroZipp launcher in three different positions for catching, throwing and storing.
