Join MotherStucker and help this father launch this new kids game! What a cool idea for a toy! It’s perfect to help kids with hand eye coordination but even better for us parents to allow for some quiet time in their room without using their tablet. 😉
Yes! ceilingSPORT LLC, has launched a unique, new indoor basketball game that hangs from your ceiling! Taking the concept from a childhood game, where he would simply throw a ball to the ceiling to see how close he could get, ceilingSPORT creator, Mike Bowers, decided it was time to bring his idea into homes of kids (and adults) everywhere.
“I was laying on the floor, playing with my infant son, and began throwing a soft ball directly up toward the ceiling, as I had done hundreds of times before. It was something I did a lot as a kid and I began thinking about how I could turn it into an actual, scoring game”, remembers Bowers. Fast forward three years, and ceilingSPORT “Original SWISH”, the company’s flagship basketball version, is now ready for the masses to enjoy.
The game has a super-lightweight design that perfectly balances safety and effectiveness. Constructed of molded foam, a basketball net and soft rim, ceilingSPORT uses two adhesive strips to stick to virtually any ceiling type. “Original SWISH” provides fun, a little exercise, and plenty of basketball shots anytime you need it.
“I originally created this game for the kid, like I was, who can’t get enough basketball”, explains Bowers. “You can play in leagues, at school, outside – or inside – and at home. So why not be able to play while you’re sitting, lounging or in bed? As we progressed in manufacturing and began getting the game out to all our family and friends, we realized the user base was much broader.
It’s not just for athletes or recreation purposes. There are therapeutic, relaxation, focus and hand eye coordination benefits that can help anyone… it’s all here with ceilingSPORT!”
