I bought this for my kids to play with but when it came to testing it to make sure it works, I found myself playing with it until the battery died. Thankfully the battery is completely rechargeable so after charging it, I was then able to give this to my kids to play with. We've actually been able to go outside and play "catch" which is just us pretty much passing it to each other. The orb itself looks really cool and kind of wish I had this as a kid. It works inside and outside but if outside, make sure you're in a clear area because we've already had to get it out of a tree. We even tried this at night and even though its fun to play with, the night play with this orb is so much cooler. Really is a lot of fun and forces you to actually get up and go outside and play with it.
This flying orb ball is great fun. It charges easily and quickly. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once you master it, it floats high and freely. We used it as you would a frisbee, tossing it to a partner and doing your best to catch it. With each toss your not sure how high or which direction it will actually go which makes the ball even more fun. Adults and teens alike enjoy it. The lights are a bonus, especially in the dark. FYI: toss easily, with propeller facing the palm of your hand, and it will soar.
This is so fun to play with. Make sure the side labeled UP is on top and turn on. It lights up and give it a jerk or spin and it starts spinning and giving you a light show. It's easy to learn and after some time and practice you can manage it the best and have an endless amount of fun with family or friends. It's rechargeable so once it dies just charge it and use it again and again
Learning how to throw and catch with grandchildren is rewarding.
It is a coordination learning experience for them and is relationship building for grandparent and grandchild.
There aren't too many activities that both generations can enjoy together but this is a good one that isn't sedentary.
Overall this toy was enjoyable for the kids. The quality of the material is a bit better than those other types of flying type toys that you see, especially those dual-wing ones. This has a bit of stretch, so you can squeeze it a bit without anything breaking. This makes it easier for the kids to catch. It is also much safer than those other toys because you get full 360 coverage from their fingers hitting any of the fans. The holes are small enough to avoid any fingers accidently slipping in and getting hit, but do keep it away from any infants. The holes are still big enough that baby fingers can get in there. You also can't tell from the default photos, but the ball not too big, which makes it easier for kids to catch. The hardest part is trying to get the ball going in direction you want, but with some practice it is doable. The kids do not care though, they just throw it and laugh. You can definitely find cheaper toys that fly like this, but it probably will not be as good of quality or safe as others.
