Yo-Be Sling Disc
Los Angeles, CA — (February 4, 2010) Spielwarenmess International Toy Fair Nuremberg 2010 kicked off last night with the annual presentation of its ToyAward program to a decidedly international group of winners. The ToyAward is presented annually to especially innovative new products.
The jury, a group of independent, trade-orientated international professionals, awarded the ToyAward to Manley ToyQuest’s BANZAI Yo-Be, in the category Fun + Sport, for an attractive combination of top quality material, sport, and play.
BANZAI Yo-Be combines two of the most loved pieces of leisure sport equipment in the last hundred years – yo-yo and Frisbee® – into a single item. Using this novel combination, young and old can try out countless movements which increase fitness and improve motor function by means of play. BANZAI Yo-Be provides action, is easy to learn, and guarantees to be an eye-catcher in any environment.
We spend a lot of time outdoors in the Spring and summer months. With 2 extremely active boys, it’s kind of hard not to. They drive me crazy when they’re cooped up in the house! We live in the city, so they don’t have acres upon acres to run around on. We need toys to keep us entertained here!
When I found out about Yo-Be Sling Disc, I was really excited to try it! since we love frisbee and the kids love yo-yo’s, I thought this would be a perfect toy for our family!
The Yo-Be Sling Disc is actually pretty fun. I tried it out, but I wasn’t the greatest. I guess my coordination in that department isn’t so hot!
This kid sure knows what he’s doing though! There are all sorts of fun tricks that you can do with the Yo-Be Sling Disc. It really is a lot of fun.
We took our Yo-Be Sling Disc to the park the first time we used it and we kind of got it figured out. We did alright. Then we came home and as soon as Dad got home he started playing with it and put us all to shame! He caught on really quick and was doing all sorts of fun stuff with it. He was like an instant pro and was shooting it all around all over the place, acting like he was throwing it to me, then of course it would go right back to him!
Here’s a picture of my lil man trying to get the hang of it at the park! He sure did have fun once he got it all figured out!
You can buy the Yo-Be Sling Disc at stores like Walmart, Kmart and target for a SRP of $12.99
