Flexi-Frisbee is a toy by Wham-O which takes the basic premise of a classic Frisbee and integrates it into a soft-material design. Unlike a regular Frisbee, which is typically made of a hard plastic, Flex-Frisbee sports a parachute material around a bendable rim.
The design is somewhat similar to that of Hyper Disc, which uses a foil material over a flexible rim. Flexi-Frisbee, however, is smaller and more compact which lends itself to easier portability. It can be used indoors without damaging walls or other items, although it could still knock over items such as a vase or lamp.
Flexi-Frisbee can be thrown for long distances, thanks to its lightweight material combined with a sturdy rim. We found that in some cases it tended to fly “sideways” although this could be more of a matter of throwing technique. The soft edge of the toy is a feature that cannot be understated, especially with younger children. Anyone who has been smacked in the face by a hard Frisbee will appreciate the delicate material used in this product.
The softness, however, could be a double-edged sword. While a hard plastic Frisbee is durable enough to last years, Flexi-Frisbee will require more delicate handling in order to last. It probably isn’t suited for pets, nor would it be advisable to use in a harsh terrain where the material could be degraded.
Because of its soft design, younger kids can throw Flexi Frisbee more adeptly than that of a regular hard Frisbee.
At a price of $10 for three, Flexi-Frisbee is competitively priced. We have yet to see it in stores, although this seems to be a certainty based on the Wham-O name attached to it. If you’ve seen it in stores, drop us a comment below.
Despite the iconic Frisbee name, Flexi-Frisbee is not the only game in town. On Amazon, you can find a number of flexible flying discs, such as the Aerobie Superdisc.
Flexi-Frisbee is a soft flying disc for kids which can be used indoors, provided that lamps or vases are kept out of the play area. While they may not sport the durability of their hard plastic cousins, these discs have enough to offer to make them worth checking out. The lightweight design allows for easier throwing by younger kids, while the soft edges keep kids’ hands and faces safe.
