Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Here's Wham-O's ad:

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
