I just bought the ball from Goodwill for $2.99 and didn't know what it was till I got it home.; Put in 4 new AAA batteries and came on but when it start it commands to pass the ball to each player so they can sign in (via the arm bands). Since that was not included in my purchase I can't use it for any of the games. The original reason I bought was to be used for hand-eye coordination for my young children. I think it is a wonderful ball to be used for this. The ball has a heavier weight to it than it appears yet is soft to the touch. A direct impact from it will not cause any harm to a child or person and yet the weight gives it a real feel of a normal softball. So it's not like a Nerf foam ball or even a hard foam ball. Could definitely break a window because the weight if you tried. Has a little bounce to it when it hits the ground but it's not a bouncy ball. I found some bands looking around on Ebay. Just do a search for Cosmic Catch Bands and you should find something that works for you. And even if you pay a little for the bands remember that the original game cost around $60.00 or more so your still gonna get a good deal. That is of course if you like the game. But for me it will be fine even without the bands to play with my young children.
Dear kimbroberg2 My husband and I did the exact same thing for our grandson when he was 8 months old. We pulled the car out of the attic last night and the battery did not work. My husband called the manufacturer customer service at 714-256-9888. He was told that the batter was too old and would have to purchase a new one. My husband called around for the item description that they suggested and found a comparable battery at Interstate Battery in our hometown. Good luck. I know we were very disappointed when this happened, but there is hope. Hope this helps.
- Decide which shape mold and colors you are going to use to make your power balls.
- Next snap together the two parts of the plastic ball mold
- Open the color crystals package that you would like to use first and pour the desired amount into the funnel on the top of the ball mold. Do not fill the funnel part of the mold all the way to the top or your ball will not bounce very well when you remove it from the mold.
- Holding the funnel part of the mold, carefully place the filled mold in a cup. While holding the mold, fill the cup with water right up to the bottom portion of the funnel. Let the mold sit in the water for five to ten minutes.
- Remove the mold from the water and wait ten minutes before opening it.
- Carefully open the mold and remove the ball. When you remove the ball from the mold it may feel a little sticky. Let it dry until it is no longer sticky before you start playing with it.
- Find a clean, flat surface to bounce the power balls on. When you are done playing, store each ball in resealable bags until you are ready to use them again.

you are playing. The ball will announce your color. Then pass the
ball to the next player until all players are signed in.
4. After all players have signed in (held the ball), pass the ball back
to the first player that signed in. The ball will then know how
many players are in the game and announce the players’ colors.
Note: If a player takes more than 2 seconds to pass the ball, it
will announce: KEEP GOING. If the ball is passed to a player who
has already signed in but was not the first to do so, the ball will
announce: KEEP GOING.
