MaxSport™ Punch Paddles™ - Paddleball in a whole new way!

Developing hand-eye coordination is essential for developing a child’s reaction time and dexterity. Hand-eye coordination affects many aspects of life from tying your shoes to using a computer to cooking to how well a child performs in sports.

Kids who play videogames often have good hand-eye coordination but their fitness level sometimes suffers. Activities that include focusing on a ball help build hand-eye coordination. Hand-eye coordination can also be built through certain exercises.

Everyone remembers paddleball. The light wooden paddle with the elastic band attached to a ball has kept millions of kids busy for countless hours trying to perfect the skill. The goal is to hit it as many times as you can without stopping. It’s a great way to improve hand-eye coordination right?

Diggin Active has created a whole new way to play paddleball with MaxSport Punch Paddles. Punch Paddles build the essential hand-eye coordination skills your kids need in a super fun way.  Punch Paddles comes with two big soft fist paddles with internal grip handles and an 8” ball. The object is to hit the ball and keep it in the air as long as possible. You can play alone buts it’s more fun with a friend!

Punch the ball back and forth, make amazing last-minute hits and keep the ball from touching the ground. Hours of active fun for 1-2 players!

Try new MaxSport Punch Paddles. Get active, stay healthy and have fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday is Thanksgiving! It's the start to my favorite time of the year. I always look forward to the traditional Thanksgiving feast with family and friends. Since there are going to be all kinds of people over for the celebration how about getting the whole family active with a game of "Duck-Duck-Turkey"? Yes I changed it from Duck-Duck-Goose but I thought it was appropriate given the impending holiday.

Have everyone gather in a circle facing inward. Have someone think of a number from one to how ever many people are playing. Each player than chooses a number in that range to determine who is "it" first. The person who is "it" walks around the circle lightly tapping people on the head saying duck. PLEASE NOTE: No smacking your cousin or brother really hard on the head! Once you decide who is the next person to be "it" say "Turkey" when you tap their head. Run around the circle and if you get to their seat before they touch you, they are now it.

It's fun for the whole family to play and will help everyone work off a little of the Thanksgiving Feast. Have fun, stay active and don't get too crazy with all the holiday shopping this weekend!

MaxSport™ Orbito™ Spinning Your Way For Christmas!

Everyday we see kids trying new things. Sometimes kids are successful, sometimes success is elusive. All kids like to excel at what they do whether it’s school, sports or hobbies.  If discouraged by lack of progress, sometimes kids will avoid playing sports or trying new things.

Diggin Active, a toy company in Emeryville, CA, designs products to keep your kids healthy, active and inspired. Diggin looked at the market for athletic toys and equipment and noticed that there were few if any products expressly designed to give new sports enthusiasts a sense of accomplishment. They developed a line of products called MaxSport that is designed to maximize the athletic potential of aspiring young athletes.

MaxSport products incorporate cool new technology to make it fun and easy to throw a ball well, fling a disk further and catch with more confidence for a great sense of accomplishment.

MaxSport Orbito is the innovative new flying disk that features “throwing orbs” for greater control and success. How many times have you tried to throw a disk and had it fly like a lame duck? With Orbito, just grab one of the throwing orbs and let it fly. Orbito achieves awesome spin and throwing distance even for beginning throwers.

Set up targets and have the whole family take turns trying to land closest to the target. Take it to the beach and have an awesome game of beach catch. Orbito is fun, durable and really easy to use.

Orbito has incredible throwing action that will provide hours of fun and active play!
