    Well the advert exists, and I seem to recall it being heavily advertised at the time.

      Awesome. Yes, I found that online recently actually. Brings back lots of memories. Couldn’t really find much else online though. Thanks a lot for posting.

    I got knocked out by one of these as a kid. I was walking through the playground at home time and somebody kicked the Impossi-ball through the air. But of course it veered wildly and caught me right in the head.

    I recall an orange ball heading right for me, then nothing at all. The next thing I knew I was at home with stitches in my head.

    Gotta love 80’s toys…

    I had one of these. Bloody loved it. It ended up crumbling because I had it so long!

    Still remember I got mine from hamley’s. But mine was pinker? Brought to school one day and damaged by a kid. ery annoyed and sad then. Actually the surface is quite soft and prone to scratches.

    If anyone has one of these to sell, my cousin has been looking for one for ages.

    I have the happiest memories of this ball; loved its tipsy unpredictability!

      Tipsy is a great word for it! I’ve got great memories of it too.

    I’ve been trying to remember what that was called. I even asked on Reddit and didn’t get any replies.
    Thank you so much for sharing this!
