It was like half a tennis ball, made of rubber. You turned it inside out and put it on the ground (or on your head) then after about 10 seconds it would pop back the other way and jump up in the air. All of my friends and their siblings has many a bruise from and ill-placed Pop Ball.

As a kid i thought it might be a good idea to put one over my eye socket, just to be different, y'know. There was a reason no one else did it.

I had one.. and if my memory doesn't lie, it was sold as "Boing-O-Ball" or something like this. BTW, I almost lost a eye with these things! :)

We used to prime these bad boys then put a rock in the hole and aim them at each other. Good times.

I have a funny memory about one of these. My grandma, mom and myself were all sitting at the table, and I kept noticing my mom fiddling with a bright blue one but not really paying attention to what she was actually doing with it. All of a sudden while I was in deep conversation with my grandma, my mom puts this pop ball in the middle of the table and lets it loose. I saw it a split second before it went off but my grandma and I both jumped out of our skins regardless. We all got a charge out of it, especially my mom who nearly laughed herself into tears!
