The Human Hamsterball

Now, every hamster owning child’s dream has been realized … a giant 7 foot tall human hamsterball:
Human Hamsterball

The “Giga Ball” comes both in this 7 foot tall adult version and in a smaller (and presumably more home-friendly) kid’s version. I couldn’t find any videos of the 7 foot hamsterball, but these kids seem to love their smaller one:

(if you can’t see the video, click here)

If you’ve ever had a real hamsterball, you probably learned the hard way (like me) that these are best used downstairs or outside. Have a spare $200 and can’t live without your own Hamsterball? Pick one up at Target.

    Now if they would only make one of those hamster fortresses for kids … the ones where the hamsters, after getting their side pouches stuffed with sesame seeds, get themselves stuck in the tube separating the kitchen from the living room.

    That would keep the kids busy for hours.

    If it has a lock on the door, it might be worth it, otherwise, it will be fun for about 15 minutes and then end up in the attic along with all the other ‘bright idea’ toys.

    Hey, I’ve ridden in something just like this (except is was clear instead of colored) at Burningman! It was a blast!

    Oh good – it will perfectly accompany the Hamster Wheel where Bossy spends her days spinning wheels.

    it would be better if some human invented a ball for people and called it somehow humanball, imagine during the break working class’s rollick.

    Now, what exactly is the legality of leaving a child in one of these hamsterballs until they’re 18?

    Just curious.

    how many hamsters will fit in one of these?

    First of all, there’s no such thing as a human hamster, so “Human Hamsterball” is a misnomer. Maybe it’s a typo referencing the non-traditional game of Hamsterball still played in remote regions of Euthanasia. Or maybe, it’s… oh, nevermind.

    Wow, that looks really fun… :)

    They have a plaything that reminds me of those hamster homes at the local chucky cheese. The kids love those.

    how do you breathe? i see a lawsuit…some idiot parent leaving their kid in there and they suffocate… NICE.

    Sarah, good point. My first thought was, I wonder what would happen if that rolled into the pool. And then I had an image that I would really rather forget. This looks like the lawn darts of the new millennium.

    You do realise there is a HUGE hole in the side where air can get in. There is no seal.

    Stumbled on this, a bit like the human hamster ball:

    There is also giant openings on plastic bags that kids supposedly suffocate on.
