So does anyone here collect bouncy balls?
I have 35 of them. :3 They are just so awesome.
I had a collection, I had at least over 100 of them, they are in my box up in the attic.
When I was younger I used to purchase those balls out of the 25c machine. They're now either being chewed on by my pets or thrown in the trash. I don't really like clutter.
I loved those little machines. I'd be broke in no time and my mother would never have change because I'd always bug her for it.
I almost went to jail cause of those little things.
Long story short..I was Tripping and wanted to see what 500 multicolored bouncy balls would look like in a black light all bouncing at once. :-o Needless to say the ASU police weren't as amused as me and my cohorts were.
after they ran all our Id's they tool our lights and they made us pick them all up and leave the ASU Campus (under escort) so we went to a big parking garage and let them go from the top and then ran like hell after all the chaos was over..
My god there were colored balls everywhere..BTW 10 floors up is the right height for maximum bounceage for those little suckers..:nod:
I never had very many but when I did have them they were cool.

I had probably 10 at the most but they were awesome.
that...is...utter...mayhem. I wish I had to resources to do that. That would be a great practical joke.
I never really got into bouncy balls. They just...bounced everywhere. :-/ It was kind of hard to keep up with them.
My parents discouraged having bouncy balls in the house because of the noise they made, and outside they are easily lost. So I never really got a big collection going, but I liked them well enough.
I probably have about 50 of them. There was a 10 cent machine that I used to buy them from back in the day. I always keep a bouncy ball on the desk so I can play with it while I'm on the computer.
Iwas more of a yoyo gal myself.
