Fushigi Ball – The Fushigi Ball Craze Begins (Fushigi Ball Video)

Earlier today, around 3:00pm or so, my 8 year old son came running into the run saying, “hey dad, come check this out!” So since I always try to be supportive to my son’s interests, I stopped blogging for a second to see what he was talking about. What he was watching on TV was a commercial for this thing called The Fushigi Ball.

The Fushigi Ball – is it real?

So as I was watching the commercial for the Fushigi Ball, I found myself both slightly fascinated, and yet slightly skeptical simultaneously. I wasn’t sure if what I was watching was real or not – I mean, can the Fushigi Ball really elevate off your hand and arm and defy gravity?

The whole point of my son showing me the commercial to the Fushigi Ball was, of course, he wanted to ask me if he could get it. My response, which was so typical, was “son, you’ll have to go ask your mother.” Which was funny because he picked up my iPhone can immediately called his mother to ask if he could get the Fushigi Ball.

We then proceeded over to the Fushigi Ball website ) where there was more information, videos, and of course a place where you can order.

My overall impression of the Fushigi Ball was that, really, it was nothing more than a ball. I mean, am I missing something here with the Fushigi Ball?

It’s just a ball that is made out of some weird material – right?

We aren’t talking about something that can actually defy gravity or anything.

The Fushigi Ball is, after all, just a ball.

But… that isn’t what’s most important here – the critically important thing is that an 8 year old finds the Fushigi Ball very fascinating and really wants one.

So my take on it is that he can save up his $35 ($19.99 plus tax and shipping), and he can get himself a nice shiny new Fushigi Ball.
