Oddball Racing Hoppers (Orange, Pink, Blue or Black 8 Ball)
Sold individually or as a three pack. Each
colour hopper has its own number printed on the front.
Strangely the box our hopper was supplied in had some confusing details
on the packaging including incorrect usage of the 'not suitable for children under 36 months
because of small parts' UK toy standard logo changing the industry acknowledged 0-3 years
to 0-8 years. Other errors include details on the side of the box referring to 'grip rings'
when in reality the grips are not in a ring formation. Another incoherent point arises
where the UK importer can not make up their minds on the hopper diameter with a 2cm difference
from side to front of box.
This hopper was the most expensive of its size and kind, yet in the tests proved to
be the worst, this is a mass produced cheap Chinese design complete with the well documented
serious design fault causing it to become useless very quickly.
The Drawing Board
This space hopper has the stopper placement design fault which
means it lasts considerably less than most others.
