Paddle ball...who didn't have one of these as a child? A small rubber ball attached by an elastic affixed to a wooden paddle. The object is to keep the ball bouncing off the paddle.
I haven't used one of these in years but can imagine a number of tricks such as behind the back, under the leg, and perhaps a trick or two taken from yo-yo like around the world.
