Light Up the Night with Reactorz! with #Giveaway!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are genuine and my own.


When it comes to kids, you can't go wrong with a ball. They are fun to play with in groups, by yourself, and even with your siblings. ;) If you purchase a Reactorz Smack Me Ball...you're going to elevate the fun to a whole new level.



Whether you're looking to play football at dusk, or maybe even smack dab in the middle of the night (campground anyone?) the Reactorz Smack Me line of products are really lit (ha, I got to use high school slang!). If you're not around a bunch of high school kids all day like I am, 'lit' means really good...which is true in this case, but is also very literal. These balls all light up, and getting them to do so is just as easy as a tap (or bounce).


The outside has a layer of protection that you will appreciate, but it doesn't hinder the light at all. We've used ours about two-hundred-fifty-thousand times now (lol, probably true!) and the light still works with ease, every single time. Definitely a fun, cool factor.  It's not a sissy light either, this is a light you can see, no matter how far you go out to catch the pass!


My son got two of them for his birthday and every day since then, when his friends come knocking (and they do every single day), they ask him to bring both of these outside. This is a new twist on an old favorite that you're absolutely going to love! I can't speak of them highly enough. This is going on my short list of ideas for Christmas shopping too (yep, I'm one of those people, I start shopping early). I can't think of a child who wouldn't love to receive these. They'd be great to pick up and put in holiday gift donation boxes too (just saying). ;)

You can learn more about them by visiting Coop Sports. You can also follow along on Facebook and/or Twitter.


COOP Sports offers so many ways for kids to get outside and move that’s there never an excuse, even if it’s dark! Their newest line is Reactorz, made with Reactive Light Technology, so a kicked soccer ball or a tossed football becomes illuminated on contact. Like Isaac Newton’s law of motion, for every action – toss, throw, kick – there’s an equal and quite bright reaction when kids play with one of eight Reactorz products. From regulation-sized basketball and soccer to football (throws just like a real, regular football!) and disc, these awe-inspiring sporting goods are priced an allowance-friendly $5.99 to $19.99.

Imagine the added surprise to a kickball or four square game with the Reactorz 8" Playground Ball ($17.99). Built-in LEDs create a flash of light with each toss and catch. Textured, semi rigid construction makes the ball easy to grip, throw and kick. See it in action in the video on their site.

How does it work? Don’t look for the on/off switch because there isn’t one! COOP designers, prized for their attention to detail, took a whole year of product development to get this just right!  The secret is the long-lasting battery life built in each ball, and the micro prism core that refracts light. Then they put their focus on the exterior. Each Reactorz boasts one of three core colors – Atomic (lime) Ice (blue) and Lava (red). Covering the balls is a contrasting shield color. The final result is like nothing else on the market! They’re affordable too, ranging from $5.99 to $19.99.

Look for this collection at Toys R Us (in stores and online) and Academy Sports + Outdoors stores. All are designed for girls and boys ages 5 and up. Four of the items enjoy an under-$10 price tag! Consider wrapping one up for a great birthday gift or good report card reward.

One lucky winner gets a ball of choice to call their own (subject to availability). US entrants only.

Now that is something I think ever boy would like to own. I know my son likes anything that lights up. Looks like your son is going to have a great Labor Day weekend.

Stacey Loring said...

oh that's cool. I love playing things in the dark. This is great because now you can see the football shining bright before it smashes into your face. LOL

Mary Burris said...

This could be fun, but personally, I'd prefer to play when there is still some light out.
