DO you remember the magic eight ball? You asked the ball a question, shook it, and you would get your answer. I had no idea they still sold magic eight balls until the other day my son's friend came over, and he had one. These two boys thought it was the great thing. They were so disappointment when I told them I had one when I was a kid. They had found something that they liked and thought I would enjoy this toy as much as I did. They thought it was new but were disappoint to find they have been around for years. Have you ever had a magic eight ball? Did you enjoy asking it questions? Did you get the answer that you wanted for you questions?

I never heard of the magic eight ball. This sounds interesting, I am disappointed I never saw one.

I needed to take better picture of it. You ask the ball a question, shake it, turn it over and read the answer.

Yes we had a magic 8 ball when I was a child. I loved it and still do. In fact, I should get myself one if they still have them.

@whiteream At the time, we were so young that we really believed whatever the 8 ball told us.

Oh wow I had one of those and realized pretty darn quick that multi-faceted questions were beyond its programmed skill of answering. The key was a question had to be answerable only by a simple yes or no . . .
