Isn’t it amazing how the pursuit of one invention can lead to another? And what I find even more spectacular is that some of these accidental finds can lead to something really rather fun. Take for example water balloons. Honestly speaking, there’s hardly a more satisfying feeling than landing a balloon filled with water on the head of your sister, especially if she isn’t expecting it. These fun soaking toys that can be enjoyed by children aged between 3 to 93 were the result of an accidental discovery, a bit like this one. And the original intended use of them is far from where they ended up. Water balloons were originally supposed to be waterproof socks.
