Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Snowball Slingshot.

December 6, 2011

NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Snowball Slingshot, a toy blaster that hurls snowballs up to 60′.

A softball-sized snowball is placed in the slingshot’s muzzle and the projectile is launched when the handle and integrated elastic tubing are pulled back and released, blasting the snowball into the air.

“The Snowball Slingshot allows long-range snowball assaults on targets that are normally out of a throw’s range,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns.

The 60′ range provides indirect fire opportunities, such as shooting over the crest of a hill or launching snow projectiles over the peak of a house unseen.

Because The Snowball Slingshot is powered by elastomers instead of batteries, it provides uninterrupted, fast-action snowball hurling, helping to facilitate the hasty withdrawal or outright surrender of opposing forces.

Made of durable, polypropylene/styrene-based plastic, The Snowball Slingshot withstands the rigors of winter play, and it comes with a shooting target so marksmen can hone their accuracy.

The Snowball Slingshot is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $39.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/81342 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
