Playing with the Waboba involves going outside, being with friends and just being out there, because being out there makes life more fun and better! The Waboba brand makes it possible to get the most out of playing in the beach or in the pool with the gang. It is now in the Philippines thanks to our friends from Mintage Trading!
So what exactly is a Waboba?
It's a small ball that bounces on water! Waboba = Water Bouncing Ball
The Waboba is a very cool toy. You can toss it around like a tennis ball and once it hits the water, it will bounce like a pebble and not sink. Just head outside with your Waboba or Wabobas, gather your friends and create your own game.
There is an official Waboba sport by the way with rules and all but the opportunities for playing the Waboba is not limited to this game. Take a look at the video below to see how the guys play with it for fun.
We have these two Wabobas available in the Philippines today - the Waboba Surf and the Waboba Pro. You can easily put back the Waboba in the resealable box for storage.
The Waboba Surf
This Waboba Surf is fun for the family and for casual throws and pranks. It comes in a blue/yellow design with an awesome Philippine map at the back (you can only find it here). I like this because you can spot the neon easily while your in the game.
Price: Buy This for only P350, FREE shipping within Metro Manila
The Waboba Pro
The Waboba Pro is the upgraded Waboba Surf and the official ball of the sport. Get ready for the action because this ball will come faster at you and it comes in a black/red Hawaiian design, again with a Philippine map at the back. I like this better and it feels lighter than the Waboba Surf (easier to throw and probably harder to catch haha).
Price: Buy This for only P420, FREE shipping within Metro Manila
Who is Mintage Trading?
It's a small start-up business by a team of business graduates who are on the lookout for unique quality products that they can bring in the Philippine market. Their first imported product is the Waboba =) They also sell Neocubes (the magnet puzzle).
When I saw the Waboba, I couldn't help but think of Nagsasa and that lovely beach. I think it will be a great exercise, a fun activity and something different, especially with all that bumming in Nagsasa. A knee-high or waist-high water level is ideal too. Plus it's all sand in Nagsasa when you go in the water =)
As for summer coming to an end soon, I think of going to Boracay in August with my Waboba. You know Boracay has a long shoreline (beachfront) in an August afternoon, right?! Plus there's not much sun =)
This is Boracay at 2 p.m. in my August 2010 trip. The water recedes more later in the afternoon.
I'll make sure to bring someone or some people to play with the Waboba though coz it's more fun if you win the game have other people to play hit it with haha. The game is very simple and even kids can join in with the fun and all the action.
