Can you chuck a stormtrooper the full length of an Olympic-size swimming pool? These Star Wars Hydro Balls challenge you to find out. Or you can just toss them around with the kids / your friend Cornelius this summer and get giddy activating their touch-sensitive lights.
Available in R2-D2 and Stormtrooper models, the Hydro Balls illuminate blue or red anytime you touch, tape, or bounce them. Each measures 4" across, and comes batteried up and ready to splash around. Unfortunately, the batteries are not replaceable, and word hasn't spread yet on how long they actually last. The same company, SwimWays, makes Lightsaber Dive Sticks that also light up, and their battery life doesn't have the best reputation.)
