That's not any `ole yes but more like an 11 year old kid kind of YESSSSSSSSS!

Ok, I'm not 11 anymore, I just turned 40 and my girlfriend is 39. But we still know how to have fun. And playing in the snow is fun. Though when it came to throwing snowballs she was very outclassed. Now the odds are much more even and she knows it! Her main problem was lack of strength or endurance to hand pack the balls. Now she can pump them out at one a second and I'm finding myself ducking a lot more then I used to.

These things work great, PERIOD. You simply pull apart the handles to open up the ball making end, stick it in the snow and push the handles together. Pull the handles back apart and your new snow ball falls out. All you have to do to make another one is move slightly to fresh snow.

The only con is that the ends on both of ours are slightly out of alignment making a slightly non-perfect sphere but it really doesn't seem to matter too much. It's a small issue that just bugs me as an engineer.

And it really does only take about a second for a decent ball. Expect to spend maybe another second for a high quality ball that has just the right density. You can control the tightness of the ball by how much snow you grab between the ends; to make a tighter ball first make a basic one then grab more snow and close back down.

A big bonus is that the balls are right for play not war. My man hands tend to pack snow down to baseball consistency which my girlfriend didn't enjoy as much... with this tool the balls are light and more fun. Also they are more consistent which is more enjoyable because you know what's coming and don't tense up waiting to get clobbered by that one hard ball.

In summary: YESSSSSSSSS!!

This simple tool does what it is intended to do: make snowballs to the right compactness. The snowballs were neither too soft that disintegrate when thrown; nor were the snowballs packed too tightly making dangerous iceballs. From toddlers to grownups, the tool is very easy to use. Plus, its bright red color makes it very easy to find in the snow.

I would recommend getting one for each child/snowball maker; it's hard to call a "truce" in the middle of a snowball fight to borrow the snowball maker!

My son says the following about the Flexible Flyer Snowball Maker:

The snowballs can be really compact and they don't fall apart when you try to throw them. Snowballs are made really quickly which means I can stock my snow fort super fast.

I ordered this to make Bath Bombs. It is perfect for that. The size is about 2 inch diameter. The price was good. It would be hard to find in stores. It was interesting that the package it was shipped in was all Chinese. I saved the packaging just for the novelty of it.

Perfect snowballs every time! Not compacted like when you make with hands so it doesn't hurt as much. The claw itself is pretty big but not a big deal unless you are packing in a suitcase. But managed to pack in our suitcase fine. Just did a bit of rearranging. They are about a foot long.

I ordered this snowball maker to shape homemade bath bombs. It was cheaper than the molds that are sold for bath bombs and worked great! We don't get snow here, but it would be fun to try this out in the snow!

Planning a trip to the mountains with the children, I thought this was a genius idea. I'd taken them up north before and they tried some snowballs (children of the desert find this foreign) but hands started freezing, shape was lacking, and overall it was a "done it, now let's go" ordeal.

Cue the snowball maker... This time when we were around a few patches of snow I tossed this to the kids, told them to prep battlestations, and I don't think I've ever seen them have more fun. This snowball maker can create mountains of snowballs in minutes.

It's a sturdy and simple design, the price is perfect for what you get, and it's durable above that. I keep it in the trunk just in case we happen upon snow and the kids have begged me to buy a second so they don't have to waste time swapping it back and forth.

If you have younger kids or do not live in the snow but want to experience the same thrills, buy one or two of these today. You may get picked on for doing it the "wussy" way but it's hard to tease a person with 30 well-packed snowballs sitting in front of them. Unless you absolutely have to do it the way your grandfather did it back in his day (when he had to hike uphill both ways to get to the snow), this should be an item you always have around the car for when a trip opens the opportunity for some snowy fun.

Rated 5/5 for quality, price, and practicality.
