The Chuckit! Junior Ball Launcher is made from lightweight flexible plastic. Throw farther, faster, and never bend down to pick up a slimy ball again. A durable plastic wand firmly grasps a tennis ball then releases it as you swing. The 18 in. long handle was designed for short-range play. With a little practice, you can consistently throw the ball 100 to 140 feet. Ergonomic grip. No slobber, hands-free pick up. Compact size.
