New Product Tuesday with Sticky Balls

Sticky Balls - Magnetic balls toyLast summer, we witnessed the unexpected and inexplicable success of Fushigi, a clear acrylic ball which made you look like a dork while pretending to juggle. This summer, Sticky Balls is vying to be the season’s As Seen on TV toy sensation. No matter how many hi-tech gadgets surround us, humans are still fascinated by magnets. Sticky Balls offers over 200 tiny, shiny attracting and repelling spheres that you can arrange in countless configurations.

Combine the fun of magnets with a mildly dirty joke, and you’ve got a sure recipe for success. Following in the esteemed tradition of Vince Shlomi’s “You’re going to love my nuts,” an anonymous actor in the Sticky Balls commercial makes sure you grokked the double meaning by declaring “My coworkers love playing with my Sticky Balls.”

Your Savvy Shopper offers this advice— it’s OK to play with your own Sticky Balls, but ask first before you play with those of friends or coworkers.
