Just fill with water and get your game on!  Watermelon Ball® JR is a smaller, lighter version of the original Watermelon Ball®. Designed to look, feel, and behave like a watermelon in water. Real watermelons are nearly neutrally buoyant: first sinking to the bottom then slowly rising to the top, making them ideal for all kinds of water games. Watermelon Ball® JR lets players dribble, kick, bounce, pass, and intercept under water. The extremely durable vinyl membrane stands up to intense action, features that are sorely missing from real watermelons. When filled with water:  weight, 5.5 lb. (2.5 kg); diameter; 6.5 in. (16.5 cm); circumference, 20.4 in. (51.8 cm).  Watermelon Ball® JR comes with hose adaptor, 2 filling needles, and instructions. Please review all warning labels and read instruction manual before using this toy.  Meets all CPSIA, CCPSA, and ASTM safety standards.

Q: We want to take it on vacation and won’t have access to a water hose. Can you fill it by pouring a cup of water in the attachment?

A: Unfortunately, you can’t. A reasonable amount of water pressure is required to fill the ball.

Q: Why does my Watermelon Ball JR no longer float? How do I make it float again?

A: Watermelon Ball utilizes a combination of water and air to have a slight positive buoyancy. Like any sports ball, any sports ball, Watermelon Ball JR will lose some air after repeated use. To make the ball float again, just add a few pumps of air into the ball from any standard ball pump or bicycle pump.

Q: Watermelon Ball JR floats too much, how do I remove the excess air?

A: Position the Watermelon Ball JR so that the fill hole is pointed straight up. Slowly insert a fill needle into the ball. Stop inserting the needle as soon as air begins to exit the ball. This will ensure that the maximum amount of air is removed from the ball. The needle can be removed once water begins to exit the ball.

Q: Do I need to remove water from the ball to store it between seasons?

A: No, if you keep the ball away from sharp objects the Watermelon Ball JR will store just fine during the winter months.

Q: How should I store the Watermelon Ball JR?

A: Store the ball in a place away from sharp objects and direct sunlight.

Q: If I want to remove the water from the ball, how do I do it?

A: This is difficult to do but possible. You will not be able to completely remove all the water but most of it. It is recommended that you remove the water outdoors. Insert a fill needle into the ball and allow the water to drain. Avoid making contact with the water as it may have an unpleasant odor. You will need to apply a significant amount of pressure to the ball to remove the water. You can do this by setting a weight on the ball or standing on the ball. Make sure you support yourself well if you stand on the ball. Apply pressure to the ball until the water is drained. This may take 5 to 10 minutes.
