The Zipfy is a feet-first, sit-on sled with a lever that allows for turning and for easier speed and stopping control. For ages 6 and older, up to 250 pounds. $39.99, at MJ Beanz toy store, 345 Oyster Bay Rd., Plainview. 516-827-7700.
The battle gets bolder with the Wham-O Arctic Force Snowball Blaster; it comes with a vinyl target and loads three snowballs at a time, each shooting up to 80 feet. $29.99, at redenvelope.com.
Another take on the snowball fight: the 150-foot Slinging Snowball Xistera. Shaped like the tool used in jai alai, the curved basket design lets users launch snowballs much farther than they could by hand. Set of two is $24.95 at hammacher.com.
Paint a snow picture with these "spray paints" made for use on snow. Sno-paint is made of tinted powder that dissolves in warm water and melts away with the snow. A set of four colors with four squeeze bottles is $18.95; refills have eight paint packets and cost $9.95. From plowhearth.com.
