The Snow Blaster

Forget water guns and Nerf guns, here's a cold weather toy that looks like great fun. You don't need a baseball pitcher's throwing arm to launch these snowballs. Just pack snow in the forming chamber, close the lid and voila, you have three instant, perfectly round snowballs.

Now it's time to shoot them. Get ready, aim, then pull back the slingshot-type launcher. The softball-sized balls fire away up to 50 feet.

Implications - I could definitely have used this machine when I was younger! My family and I always participated in snowball fights and unfortunately for me, my ability to make or throw snowballs was never that great!
