December 23, 2008 The Snowball Launcher will outdo even the most accomplished snow tosser by making and blasting softball-sized snowballs up to 50 feet. Unless you live anywhere near a city, in which case it might blast softball-sized chunks of muddy slush mixed with cigarette butts and gravel. Still, it is sure to give you the edge in snow fights this winter.

The USD$29.95 Launcher sold by Hammacher Schlemmer can pack three snowballs in its chamber. Snowballs are fired by pulling back and releasing the slingshot mechanism. The Launcher is made of durable, cold-resistant plastic and includes targets for shooting practice.
