The toy that always comes back
Tired of balls and frisbees that don’t come back? Try this whistling boomerang, which offers a stable and accurate return flight, every single time!

Sure, regular kites are great, but this easy gliding dragon will turn heads and inspire gasps of amazement as it soars over the neighborhood!

A brilliant outdoor toy!
Can you solve them all?
This highly entertaining brain teaser uses combinations of colored connected balls.

Suitable for braniacs ages 6 and up. A colorful, hands-on way to build that genius IQ!
A sporty challenge
Need an awesome gift for an active kid? This cool game combines the best parts of badminton, soccer, and freestyle. Keep the UKick in the air with your feet and arms — whatever you do, don’t let it touch the ground! You can adjust the difficulty by adding or taking away the six weighted discs at the base. And remember, practice makes perfect. Soon enough, you’ll be doing all kinds of tricks and stunts!
The indoor/outdoor sensation
Pindaloo is the ultimate skill toy. Just loop the ball from one side of the tube to the other — trust us, it’s much more difficult than it sounds! Keep trying, and with time, you’ll be doing tricks, looping the ball high into the air, and bouncing the ball on your knees between loops. The best part about Pindaloo is you can play it anywhere — indoors, outdoors, and even in the pool! An awesome year-round gift!
