The Wham-O SnowBall Blaster: Gear you want but don't need

Okay, I know last week's unnecessary but desperately desired product was kiddie-oriented. This week's -- the Wham-O SnowBall Blaster is even more so. But it's perfect for a snowball fight on a white Christmas. Better yet, outfit the whole clan and have an all-out snowball war.

The thing not only molds perfectly round snowballs when you pack its triple chamber full of the white stuff, but it can also send them careening 100 feet through the air before exploding on contact with pretty much anything, preferably humanity.

And it's damn near impossible to shoot your eye out with one of these SnowBall Blasters. Your mom will like that.
