Description
It was a big red plastic "bowl" we used to put it in the pool, but it would sink if it got too full (not floaty) you could also sit in it and rock back and forth.

It was an awsome outside play toy. 4 of us could fit in it with no problem. Grew up with it wish they still made them..

These were fantastic! Great for all ages. At one time I had 5 but gave 4 of them as gifts. I wish I would have kept all of them! I have been looking for about 20 years for another one. We used them in the pool, on the lawn, even turned it upside down for a slide for little ones. We kept one in the living room and would cuddle up to read stories or watch TV.

My dad made the first prototype here in Vancouver, my sis and I were the testers... only drawback was the first model was made out of fiberglass... my god how that itched. First prototype also had a ring around the outside lower edge to keep it from flipping over... good times though. Shame it never really took off.

Ted and/or Alex. Is there any way you can provide the information for the company your family worked with? I would like to contact them--maybe even check into buying the mold.

I am also looking for a wombler for my preschool. Any manufacturer / marketer out there looking for a good product? Here's an opportunity to develop and market a great toy!!!

I would love to buy a bunch of these too! My sister won one from our local toy shop when we were young & we played with it for hours. One of the best toys to promote imaginations! If someone starts selling them please let us know! I will look for a picture to post so there can a visual.

Did anyone ever figure out if there is a way to these now? Even if it means potentially buying the molds?

I work as a lifeguard at a summer camp and noticed that we have 3 of these! I had no clue what they were or what they're purpose was so I decided to do some research and this is the only place I have found any information about them. I must say they are pretty comfy to lie down in! Anyone know where I can buy one?
