Summary
Innovative toy manufacturer Wicked's exciting new toy - winner of the 'Best New Outdoor Toy' award at London Toy Fair - is affordable, easy to use and packs hours of endless fun – either in the park amongst groups of friends, or bubble-battling in the back garden.

Get ready to crash, bash and smash: this August sees the official, highly-anticipated global launch of the brand new Wicked Body Bubble Ball, winner of the ‘Best New Outdoor Toy’ award at London Toy Fair, priced just £49.99.

This exciting, new outdoor toy from innovative toy manufacturer Wicked is affordable, easy to use and packs hours of endless fun – either in the park amongst groups of friends, or bubble-battling in the back garden. Previously the thrills of ‘bubble football’ could only be enjoyed by sports teams who either rented or could afford the hefty price tag of over £250 per ball.

Suitable for active fun-loving people, from kids aged 8+ years to adult, the Wicked Body Bubble Ball inflates to 1.2 metres and surrounds the body – so you can enjoy bashing into your friends without getting hurt! It is made from strong, durable PVC, with super heavy gauge vinyl for rugged durability. An interior harness and handles are featured within the ball itself to keep you strapped in for a safe ride.

David Strang, Wicked’s managing director, comments:

“Bubble football is already a global phenomenon; it’s absolutely huge on social media right now. But its high price tag has long been an issue for many that want to join in the fun. The launch of the new Wicked Body Bubble Ball marks a turning point for bubble football both here in the UK and across the globe; it’s the chance for people to get their hands on this great, hugely enjoyable toy at a very accessible price. Bring on the fun for everyone!”

Available in red or blue from 28th August, the Wicked Body Bubble Ball is now available to pre-order online. It will also be stocked by Argos, Amazon, eBay, The Hut Group, Menkind, Hamleys, Harrods, Debenhams and Maplin.
