It’s a skill-building toy, so practice does make perfect. Similar to juggling and hula-hooping, once you get the hang of it the fun really takes off. Drop the ball into the U-shaped tube and start swinging to get the just-right amount of momentum to shoot it out. You’re not done—now you have to catch it back into the tube. It’s a great way to build hand-eye coordination and dexterity, but most of all it’s endlessly entertaining and hard to put down once you start looping the loop.
