Oh my god! I totally had the clown head sprinkler! The thing sucked royally...... as soon as you ran through it, you broke the stream of water and the clown hat fell down on you and knocked you unconscious. Thank god for that manufacturer it was made in less litigious days!

I never had them either. I always had to use just the regular sprinkler.

I was ghetto.

No way - the clown sprinkler was awesome - you had to run thru quick enough so the hat wouldn't fall - that was part of the fun. I don't think I ever had an issue with the hat actually falling on me - nor hurting if it did.
