Manufacturer: OgoSport LLC
Price: $34.99

The Ogo Sport RAQ is a very fun, easy to use, versatile outdoor game. Similar to a badminton or paddle ball set, the game is played with two paddles with trampoline like stretchy surfaces that send the included rubber ball soaring in gentle arcs with very little effort. The paddles float and have integrated foam rings as handles, making them safe and easy to find and play with in almost any outdoor or beach environment. The ball is a bouncy yellow rubber one with detachable ribbons that one can interchange or remove to affect the way the ball flies. This aspect did not have much of an effect on play, unless the toy was being used across a very large distance.

One family brought this toy on their summer vacation, and found it was a hit amongst the other families they met. Children as young as two-and-a-half were able to play along. The children especially enjoyed playing over a volleyball net. The set is durable and our testers did not notice any damage after using it for months.
