When turned on, this futuristic-looking orb emits mild electric shocks every 10 to 30 seconds. Pass the ball back and forth like a hot potato, hoping you’re not the one stuck feeling the juice.

A spark of fun

When you want a fun party game with a little more at stake, start tossing around Shock Ball.

This unique toy quickly turns your gathering into a frantic, laughter-filled game of hot potato. The unlucky one who receives the random shock must keep their wits about them, as dropping the ball eliminates them from the game. Keep playing until only one person remains!

This is no tame game.

Futuristic fun

To activate your little orb of mischief, insert the included activation key into the small hole in the casing and press the power button.

The ball will begin producing electric shocks at random intervals every 10-30 seconds. The shock is felt through the metal conductive points scattered across the surface of the orb. When you see the ball glow red, it means the ball is electrified… and you better hope it doesn’t get passed to you!

Exciting but safe

Grabbing a ball of electricity sounds like a reckless dare, but Shock Ball delivers the perfect amount of dangerous. The shocks, while unpleasant, aren’t painful or permanently damaging.

To ensure that the ball is only used when expected, the on/off switch is safely enclosed within the plastic casing. Shock Ball also has an automatic sleep function that kicks on after a minute of inactivity. This prevents you from accidentally leaving it activated and shocking the person trying to clean up at the end of the night.
