It cannot be purchased in retail stores. The only way to obtain it is through second-hand websites and stores.
It originally was packaged as a set with two blasters so two people would be able to play together.
It comes packaged with two blasters and four Ballistic Balls.
It is a single-fire ball blaster that makes a loud "pop" noise when fired.
The Blast-a-Ball, designed by Randall H. Moormann, was the first "official" Nerf blaster (not including the Air Launcher). It was also the first blaster to fire Ballistic Balls, as well as being the first handheld Nerf foam weapon.
It was succeeded one year later by the Blast-a-Matic, which featured a higher ammo capacity and rate of fire.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Blast-a-Ball, simply insert one Ballistic Ball into the front barrel of the blaster. Extend the priming handle back wards fully until it cannot extend any further.
Sharply and quickly push the priming handle forward to fire the ball.
- The Blast-a-Ball was only ever sold in a two-pack; the next blaster to only be sold in this format would be the 1997 CommLink II in the Cyber Stryke Gear series.
- It would be the only ball blaster to fire one ball until the latest Nerf ball blaster, the 2005 Atom Blaster of the Ball Blasters series.
