DIGGIN Diggin’s farthest flying traditional foam football, Black Max Light Spiral Football, designed for kids ages 5 and up, now features a light system.

The 6-foot rocket inflates in seconds and the foam fins are weighted for aerodynamics. Limbo Hop challenges kids to limbo under or jump over the bar.
