Let It Snow! 3 Toys to Make Winter Fun Again

A friend of mine once said to me “You know you’re and adult when snow stops being fun.” I can relate, driving in snow can be a hassle and shoveling it gets old pretty fast, but that doesn’t make it all bad. Snowmen, sledding, snowball fights, plenty of fun to be had as well. Here are a few inexpensive item to help you maximize your snowy fun.

  • Paricon Flexi Tube $9.95 – Growing up I was always a plastic sled kid. Last year the “Future Bride” an I went sledding and we noticed that a lot of people had switched over to tubes. It makes sense as they are easier to drag up a hill, softer or bumps, and they often spin as you go down a hill. The downside is that they can get holes in them, but at 10 bucks anything after one winter is gravy. 
  • Flexible Flyer Snowball Maker $4.76 – I tried one of these out two years a go and all I can say is, Wow. This thing makes perfectly round snowballs twice as fast as you could by hand. With the same amount of effort it takes to use a pair of hedge clippers you can make dozens of perfect snow balls.
  • Snowfling Snowball Throwing Sticks $4.99I haven’t tried these, but the reviews are great. Lacrosse players should be particularly good at using it. 
So for less the 50 dollars you can buy two of each of these items. They are great gifts or stocking stuffers, hours of fun in the snow.
