A Super Ball is comprised of a type of synthetic rubber invented in 1964 by chemist Norman Stingley. This ball is extremely elastic and dropped from shoulder level, a Super Ball snaps nearly all the way back; thrown down by an average adult, it can leap over a three-story building. Toys similar to Super Balls are more generally known as bouncy balls, a term that covers other balls by different manufacturers with different formulations.
