Review and Giveaway: Aerobie Sprint Flying Rings

Now that spring is here, we can go outdoors for extended periods of time.  This means playtime at the park: slides, climbing, throwing frisbees.  What could be better?  How about tossing an Aerobie around?

You see, NHL and JSL  haven’t quite gotten the knack of throwing a frisbee.  NHL’s throws tend to not travel far and JSL’s barely leave the ground.  So, while we do have fun, there isn’t any distance involved.  Enter the Aerobie Sprint flying ring.


The minute the boys saw the flying ring, they wanted to try it out.  I had them wait until we went to the park.  Good thing too, because that disc can really fly!  NHL was able to send it quite some distance.  I didn’t measure, but I’d guess his throws easily topped 30 feet.  JSL had more trouble, but he also had a few successful throws.  His only went about 10 feet or so, but I’d call that impressive for an almost-four year old.  As for me?  I got some seriously far throws in as well.

This is definitely something you’ll want to play with where there’s plenty of room.  At one point, NHL threw the ring towards me when we were too close to the edge of the park and it almost went into the road.  After that, I made sure all throws were directed into the park and not outside of it.

We all loved playing with the Aerobie and it definitely attracted attention.  Before long, two other kids in the park joined our game of catch.  I’d definitely recommend this for anyone with kids (or even just adults) and a large amount of land to toss the ring across.
