Thundersticks are vertically-shaped inflated plastic balloons that are used as promotional noise makers. The noise is created when two thunder sticks are struck together.

They are most often used at sporting events, political rallies and concerts.

Origin and Popularity

Thundersticks were created in South Korea and first gained populartiy in the United States when used by fans of the Anaheim Angels during the 2002 World Series.

Today, Thundersticks enjoy the same popularity as the Minnesota Twins Homer Hanky and Pittsburgh Steelers Terrible Towel and many sports franchises give these to fans during important games, such as playoff contests.
