Aerobie Skylighter Flying Disk review and giveaway



All summer long, we've had tons of fun tossing around our amazing Sprint flying ring -- but now fall is here, with shorter days and earlier dusk. The twilight hours haven't stopped my kids from playing outside, and now, thanks to Aerobie's new lighted flying disc, the Skylighter, playing outside in the evening is more fun than ever. Aerobie sent us a Skylighter to review and play with, and they're even providing one to give away! Keep reading to find out more...


The Basics

About the Skylighter: Extend the fun of playing with an Aerobie flying disc into the night with the new Skylighter lighted disc. Its bright LEDs illuminate the clear center and the translucent colored rim to make the entire Skylighter appear bright in the night sky. With the patented Aerobie spoiler rim design, the Skylighter is easy for players of all skill levels to throw well. Its narrow profile and large 12 inch (30cm) diameter make the Skylighter fly far and straight.

The Bongga

The Skylighter is a wonderful frisbee! It flies really nicely, even when the boys don't throw it perfectly.



The boys are really having some great, active afterschool fun tossing the Skylighter back and forth! They love the way it "floats" in the air.


But it's when you turn the LED light on that things get really special. The Skylighter has a little switch underneath that turns the LED light on (I like that you can turn it off when you're not using it so you save the battery).


It's so much fun to see the lighted-up Skylighter in the air! It looks great even in the daytime, but at dusk it really looks like a UFO!


The Blah
Compared to the Sprint, the Skylighter is bulkier and heavier, and doesn't fly as fast or far -- which is actually not such a bad thing, because it can't get lost as easily!


The Bottom Line
I can't put it any plainer than this:


Translation: The Aerobie Skylighter will light up playtime and put a smile on your child's face.

My son has no problem being active after school, but I do like to give hime new ideas of how to play with his toys. Each day could be in a different place. One day we are in the old west. The next we are in a tropical forest. LOL! He is in Kindergarten, so this really works well.

Kelly Braund on September 27, 2011 at 9:03 AM said...

Here's my tip:
I like the kids to run around outside a little after school to get some activity after being stuck in a desk or on the bus. I keep a bin of outside toys right by the front door (inside). Depending on the season, they change. Right now, their favorite is a rocket toy that you jump on the airbag to make the rocket shoot up! In the winter you can have different buckets to make snow castles and spray bottles with different colors of food coloring colored water to "color" the snow!
