Aerobie Fun in the Sun! (Review and Giveaway)





Spring is here! Or should I say: "Spring is here according to the calendar!" I hope the weather is cooperating in your area of the world. Some of my poor family members woke up to snow this morning.  Hopefully you're experiencing warmer weather and as a result more outdoor play! My family and I have been playing all week with our newest toy, the Aerobie Sprint ring flier. This fun toy is like a frisbee in that it flies. The end. The qualities that make an Aerobie better than a frisbee are:
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Flies twice as far as conventional discs
  • Durable (doesn't crack like a frisbee after sun exposure)
  • Your throw flies much faster
  • Easier to catch than a frisbee
  • Made in the U.S.A. (Actually, I can't say where your little blue frisbee sitting in the garage was made but I always love to support products produced in America.)
While reading about the Aerobie I learned that the Sprint's smaller size is its only distinction from the otherwise identical Aerobie Pro flying ring which holds the Guinness World Record for the longest throw. Wow! As soon as my husband found out I had an Aerobie in the house he was so excited. He has many memories as a child playing with these fun toys. He prefers an Aerobie because of the speed and distance he can get in throwing the disc. What I really like is the minimized pain I had in attempting to catch his throws. With a frisbee I'm always jamming a finger as I try to catch the disc but with the Aerobie's soft rubber edge it's much easier to catch. Plus, I love to shoot my arm up through the center  and catch it like I would a ring toss.

If you want to increase outdoor play for your children this is a great way to exercise and enjoy yourself at the same time. It's fun for throwers of all skill levels and is available in orange, magenta, and yellow. 

BUY: Aerobie has a great application on their site where you can look up local retailers that sell the fliers.
