Pepper Pong

Somewhere in the void between ping pong (which is difficult to play without practice), and pickleball (which is easy to play, but produces a sound that is driving humans insane), lives Pepper Pong. What is Pepper Pong you retort? It’s the ultimate, simple game to bring people together for up to four players — my three and five-year-old are both able to play (whereas they have no chance at ping pong). It packs up in a bag the size of a small shoebox, and can be played literally anywhere with a semi-flat surface.

Feel-good founder story (with travel roots): Tom Filippini (who founded Exclusive Resorts, an ultra-high-end vacation membership club), dreamed up Pepper Pong while he was overcoming his own battle with addiction — it provided him with a way to focus on being competitive with those around him, instead of on substances. Tom now provides Pepper Pong sets to addiction and recovery centers:

Why it’s great for dads: Who doesn’t love uniting around competition? Pepper Pong sets up in seconds, packs to the size of a small shoebox, and it’s silent (so when the kids go to sleep, you can keep playing). It unites the entire family in generational fashion. It’s also the ultimate travel game — we’ve played in airports all over the world while everyone else stares into their phones; it’s generally great for replacing digital devices and connecting IRL (I can vouch: it’s the ultimate replacement for screen time).

Power Press

Comes with 30+ Color Coded Combo Positions for Exercise and 10 Week HIIT Tone & Burn workout program included.

Review: I bought this for my husband’s birthday because he was seeking a structured workout plan. This was the perfect choice. He’s really doing great. He totally stuck with it and completed it several times now. It’s well put together and sturdy! Really great product!

Shipping info: will still arrive within 5 days
