Frisbee® Sonic - Flies Like A Bird, Looks Like A Stingray [Giveaway]


We love playing Frisbee and we have all kinds of Frisbees at home. Big, small, hard, soft, you name it. Now, we've recently received a new kind of Frisbee to try. It looks pretty cool and here’s how Wham-O describes it: “The square-like, sine wave shape mimics many things in nature. The alternating twists and turns of the design resemble a bird in flight as it spins through the air.” It’s true, it does look like a stingray in motion.

Check it out and enter for a chance to win your own Frisbee Sonic.
