Aerobie offers a lot of great products that are fun for the whole family. One of them would be the Skylighter Flying Disc. Why is it called a “Skylighter”? Well, not only is it a great flying disc, it also lights up! I received one for my family and I to use for review and it’s really great! It also comes in quite a few different clolors!
The size and design of the Skylighter Flying Disc, makes throwing and catching it easy and a lot of fun for all ages or skill levels. The disc is somewhat clear with a really cool silverish colored design on the top of it that allows different colors to show when light hits it in a certain way. The design itself doesn’t light up though.
The design allows for better aerodynamics allowing for more stability when flying. The spoiler rim helps support a wobble free flight which is great when you have younger kids. Our five year old tosses it like a pro! I wouldn’t say that it is an alltogther flexible disc but it does have a little “give” to it which means you can bend it a little. The rim is rubber-like so it has a soft catch to it. It’s also lightweight and because of the design, I think it’s easier to play with. A lot better than getting hit in the face with your typical hard plastic discs and so much more stable than those flimsy ones! The rim is also very easy to grip!
The underside of the Skylighter is where you will find the switch to turn the light on (battery compartment) which includes the CR 2032 3V batteries. Even though this is underneath the disc, it’s still lightweight. Even though the outer rim is a solid color, it is also translucent. The light itself doesn’t move around the disc but when it is flying, the light looks as if it is traveling all the way around it. It’s really neat to watch. The light is an L.E.D. light which lasts for quite some time and the batteries are also long lasting so far! I love that it’s an L.E.D. light because it’s not a blinding light but lights up enough that you can see around in the dark and you won’t miss it flying at you!
I did the best I could with my pictures. It wasn’t even as dark as it looks in my pictures. I don’t think any picture can really show how great it looks after the sun goes down and it doesn’t even have to be all that dark out either! It really is the “coolest” thing to watch flying through the air too as my son says!
With my camera, I couldn’t get very good video of it flying when tossed back and forth. I just wanted to be able to show you how great the light is! You can see a great video on the Aerobie site with the Skylighter product details or just follow this link: http://aerobie.com/videos/aerobie_skylighter_400x300.wmv
We LOVE the Skylighter Disc! It is so much fun to play with. Flies great without any wobbling, great stablity, easy to catch, very easy to throw, and it lights up for evening play! We think it’s great on the weekends since it gets darker soon and the kids still haven’t wound down for the night. We just take them out for a little game of disc after dinner! Of course, it’s also a lot of fun for adults too. We still have bonfires and hangout outside on the weekends before it gets really cold. The kids have a lot of fun but when it’s lights out for them, us adults can still hang out and have fun with the Skylighter!
Buy It: The Aerobie Skylighter Flying Disc can be purchased at Sports Authority, Dicks Sporting Goods, and other sporting stores for around $15. Check the website for other places to buy it!
