Koosh, the iconic rubber pom-poms from the ’80s, are making a huge, 21st-century comeback.

Following its relaunch of the original Koosh ball last year, PlayMonster is extending the line to include other Koosh-branded products. The latest toys include Koosh Sharp Shot, Koosh Mondo, Koosh Flingshot, Koosh Woosh, Koosh Double Paddle, Koosh Hoops!, and Koosh Minis 3-Pack, giving kids new ways to play with the classic toy.

PlayMonster has also teamed up with the YouTube channel Dude Perfect to debut Koosh’s new lineup and announce the National #KooshChallenge. The mega-YouTubers highlighted the Koosh challenge in a video yesterday, filming their own Koosh commercial clash.

For the #KooshChallenge, kids are invited to film their own Koosh commercials, too! This video contest officially kicked off yesterday and runs until Sept. 7, asking fans to show all the ways that they love Koosh. By sharing their video with #KooshChallenge and tagging @KooshOriginal on social media, five Koosh fans have the chance to win big — Prizes include the new Koosh toy lineup, a $200 gift card, and collectible autographed gear from Dude Perfect.
