Djubi (pronounced JU-bee) is part lacrosse, part slingshot, and a whole lot of fun. On a recent sun-filled Saturday, I grabbed this throw-and-catch game and headed outside with my husband and our youngest kids. Mr. 3-year-old boy couldn’t quite get the hang of it and happily kicked a soccer ball around instead, but Ms. 6-year-old girl figured out the slingshot-like aspect of it quickly, and was sending the ball skyward in no time. The balls (which don’t really bounce, but do float, making this game perfect for the beach) have an elastic loop attached — you hook the loop onto the edge of the hand-held net, pull it back, and let it fly while the other player races to catch it. The set comes with two nets and two balls; additional balls are available.
