Made in the USA, these discs are fun for all the family, even the dog!
With a patented spoiler rim design for long, accurate flights, and made from flexible material for soft catches, the Aerobie Squidgie disc floats in water - perfect for beach or pool games - and has a compact 20cm diameter and because of it's flexible rubber compound it is so easy to pack for family outings.
I absolutely LOVE this! It's soft, comfortable to use, not to mention really easy to use (even for totally suck flying disc people like me!)
The only down side in fact, is that it's so easy to use there are major issues prying it off Miss 5 to have a go! This is so perfect for young kids, because of the ease of use, they can be having fun with it in no time. Within a few tries, Miss 5 had it flying almost as well as us grown ups.
Also because it's soft, catching a Squidgie Disc doesn't hurt like a frisbee does if there is a catching mishap! Lets face it, no one likes a hard flying disc in the face! I've often avoided playing with frisbees for this reason so it's really great to have a product I can really get into playing instead of holding back.
I'm normally a total cheapskate but I think for what this product is, the price is totally fantastic and well worth the money. I can see this getting a lot of use over the summer.
Big thanks Teamsports and KIWIreviews for letting us try this, thumbs way up from all the family members here!
We don't have a dog but with two preschoolers the dog woudn't get much play with this Squidgie!! This is by far the best frisbee-like product for children. Miss Three and Miss Four didn't have great success throwing or catching this but it didn't matter. It is soft enough to cause no pain even when scoring direct hits to the head (phew!!!) and no pain when catching due to the ultra soft rim.
We (mum and dad) didn't find it very aerodynamic and found it difficult to get it to go in the direction we wanted but this may be more our technique than the product. It did seem to have a slightly boomerang return on it . Once again it didn't really matter as we didn't get much of a chance to play with this as Miss Three and Four loved it so much!!! We all got a lot of exercise racing around in crazy directions. I think the bright green colour is brilliant and because it is soft and pliable there was no risk of injury so the little misses could throw in random directions to their hearts content without us worrying they would hit and hurt someone.
A big plus is that it not only floats in water but also drifts (after some time...) back to the shore so hopefully you would only need to ever buy one of these!! I also loved that this product comes in cardboard packaging with NO Plastic. A big tick.
This Squidgie is a fantastic disc for young and old alike and those of us in between and a must have for the beach which pretty much means it is the perfect, very affordable, Christmas present this year.
This was probably one of the coolest things I've ever played with, yes, it wasn't as cool as the boomerang or the Aerobie Pro, but it was still fun to use. I liked the fact that the disk was flexible. I can think of 4 good reasons why this is the ultimate play toy: 1. If the other player can't catch the disk, it won't hurt as much if he/she gets hit. 2. It has a comfortable grip. 3. The toy can be folded up and put in your bag and still have plenty of room to put your other stuff. 4. The flexibility reduces the risk of the product breaking.
I found that if the Squidge Disk is thrown like a normal Frisbee, it doesn't fly very far, but if you grab the disk with only your thumb and index finger, stand side-on to where you want the toy to fly, then flick it forward, it will glide smoothly, travel faster and cover more distance. When I tried throwing this thing gently in my backyard, it started to gain more altitude, so when I was trying to make the Squidge Disk fly low, it flew almost as high as the fence!
Since this thing can float, it is the best choice for Beach parties, or even in the nearest public swimming pool! I say that this thing is good for people of all ages, except the toddlers, they will try to run away with this thing and try to claim it as their own! This is a great toy that can be used in fun games of catch, and at only $20, it is highly affordable! Have fun!
