Dad-Invented Toy Enables Kids to Play Five Different Outdoor Sports with a Single Ball and Bat
Father of twins, Babak Forutanpour using Kickstarter to get AryaBall to market, a five-in-one kids’ sports ball created to encourage outdoor play
AryaBall’s nested design includes the outer layer of a standard soccer ball, but when twisted open, a football is found perched inside. Upon opening the football, a “dimpled” baseball is revealed, which doubles as a golf ball and users will also find a flying disc. AryaBall also comes equipped with AryaBat, a baseball bat with a slide-out putter head to quickly transform into a golf club.
After seeing his own kids’ response to his invention and the reaction of others, Forutanpour now hopes to bring AryaBall to the masses. He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign now through Friday, March 28, at 10:49 a.m. (EST) to gain funding for the project. Those interested in supporting and sharing the AryaBall Kickstarter campaign can find it via www.aryaball.com.
If successfully funded, Forutanpour has a team of designers and engineers behind him who are ready to make AryaBall a reality.
"As a kid, I remember my mom yelling for me to come inside for dinner, and I would always shout back that I needed 5 more minutes,” says Forutanpour. “Today, it’s difficult to get kids to play outside at all. My hope is that the convenience and versatility of AryaBall will encourage kids and families to replace hours of screen time with more active, outdoor play.”
