The Wham-O Super Ball is back and in color! The Super Ball made its big bounce into the world in 1965. This curiously bouncy ball was invented by Norm Stingley, a chemical engineer employed by the Bettis Rubber Company in Whittier, California. Stingley fashioned a ball of Zectron, which is a material originally intended to cap off gushing oil wells. He placed the molded Zectron ball under intense pressure; the result was the ball could bounce 6 times higher and more energetically than any regular rubber ball. Wham-O sold 6 million Super Balls the first year it was marketed. By the mid-1970s, sales of the novelty had dwindled, but in 1998, it was re-released as"The Original Super Ball," with much nostalgic appeal to its fans. Populate the earth with Super Ball!
