DCMA Notice by Walter Baumgarten

Lively up your camping trips and family reunions with this full BlongoBall set. Appropriate for use both outdoors and indoors, BlongoBall combines elements from bocce, horseshoes, croquet, and other lawn sports, but adds a unique twist: rather than throwing a ball or a shoe, you throw a BlongoBall, which is technically two small spheres connected by a thin stretch of rope.

The goal is to wrap your BlongoBall around one of the horizontal bars of the BlonGoal, which stands 25 feet away (or less if kids are playing). Players score one, two, or three points with a successful throw, depending on which bar the BlongoBall grabs. And the game ends when one person or team reaches 21 points exactly. You can even add a bit of defensive strategy to the game by trying to knock your opponent's BlongoBalls off the bars.

      A lot of these items would be good for a college student. I think it is nice to have a list, because college students are hard to shop for. many of them have limited space in their dorm rooms so we have to consider that before purchasing items. I found some more gifts for college students at

      I'd give a Garmin 255w to a college kid. It is simple but very functional GPS to help one travel safely.
