Fun times for the whole family

Product is awesome with a bat that has a great feel for adult and child alike. The ball doesn't allow for super skilled playeds to dominate which is nice. If wanted for greater competition, pair with a training baseball (soft or spongy).
We love this!

After Christmas Day - every household in my family will own one. We love it! Especially because even the little ones can hit the ball.
Wouldn't buy again

I am very disappointed with my purchase of the Buoy Bat. It really isn't any more fun to play with than my 5-year old granddaughter's plastic bat. It's also not as light as it's described. I would return it but the shipping costs probably wouldn't make it worth it.
Love it!

The Original Buoy Bat and Ball

Made in Maine from authentic bullet-nose lobster buoys and finished with a bat-grade hardwood handle. The unique shape of the bullet-nose buoy gives the bat a nice big sweet spot to send the included Little Blaster Ball soaring. Soft and lightweight, the ball floats making it perfect for the beach or the backyard.

Buoy Sports

In the summer of 2008, Bill Page stumbled upon an old lobster buoy beached along the chilly Maine waters, handed it to a little girl, pitched her a tennis ball and ba-ba-buoy, she hit it out of the proverbial park. In that instant, The Original Buoy Bat was born and Bill was on a mission to create a new novelty sport that kids from age 2 to 92 can enjoy.

Unlike Bill’s first prototype, today’s Buoy Bats are made from brand new, authentic lobster buoys finished with bat-grade hardwood handles. The secret fun of the bat is in the giant “sweet spot” of the bullet-nose buoy, making it easy to connect with a ball and send it flying. Each Buoy Bat comes with a Little Blaster ball that’s soft and floats, making it perfect for the beach or the backyard.

Denyse Miller and Buoy Bill were neighbors growing up and reconnected on Facebook. She suggested Daily Grommet test his invention. Buoy did our testers have fun swinging for the beaches in sunny Santa Monica.

For sluggers young and old, it feels great to step up to the plate and take a swing with a Buoy Bat. Play ball! more Their Story
