MILWAUKEE, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Looking for a toy that is American-Made, safe for kids, environment-friendly and fun to play with. Say hello to Toobee, the Amazing Flying Can. Across the globe, this aerodynamic wonder is being called, “The Hottest item Since the Frisbee(R).”
Designed by two aeronautical engineers, the patented high-tech aluminum airfoil is only .005 inches thick and weighs less than 3 grams.
Toobee can be tossed for distance, accuracy, fun, or competition. Just grip it and throw Toobee with a spin like a football. Watch as it sails, soars, swoops, and curves. The world distance record is 283 feet — not bad for something that weighs less than a marshmallow.
The toy is designed for ages 6 to 106 and can be played alone, with the family, or with a group of friends. It has no sharp edges and is safe indoors or out.
Major league baseball pitchers experimenting with Toobee soon learned to throw “curveballs” and controlled pitches, almost as if it were a baseball. In June of 2007, Toobee was used as part of the Keynote address for eBay Live held in Boston. The event was a huge success.
In contrast to many toys on the market today, Toobee is made in the USA. It is 100% recyclable making it a “green toy,” and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
There is also a Toobee Air Force, with its own Official Toobee branded merchandise, a Flight Training Manual and the motto, “Success comes with CANS.” In the works is a kid-centric Toobee’s guide to life featuring positive and inspirational content.
Greg Stromberg, President of Toobee International said about Toobee, “It’s a toy that turns heads and creates good, clean fun wherever it goes. It brings people together. And is the perfect cure for sedentary lifestyles.” “Ultimately, I want Toobee to be able to make a difference in society. To bring about positive change,” Stromberg added. In keeping with that goal, 20% of all profits go to select children’s charities worldwide.
At present time, Toobee is available via the Internet, and mail order. A 2-pack with protective storage/carry case is just $14.95.
