It's summertime and one of the things that means is that outdoor playtime is inevitable. Whether you are headed to the backyard, the local park or the beach, outdoor toys are a must-have item. We recently tried out a new outdoor toy that completely blew us all away.

I absolutely adore the story of how the Pocket Disc came to be.

Tasked with crocheting a round placemat for her handwork studies, Savanna
unknowingly created the first Pocket Disc prototype. But, her placemat was not
initially recognized for its unique flying abilities. It sat on an end table for over a year
and a half until the father of one of her friends stopped by for a visit and casually
tossed it across the room at Savanna’s dad.
As the placemat floated across the room, Savanna’s dad, Patrick Groft, and
the infamous placemat thrower, Erik Larsen, shared a eureka moment and the
Pocket Disc was born. The two soon launched the company they co-own, Phd
Productions, and began to explore ways to bring this new toy to the mass market.

The Pocket Disc is lightweight and super soft but, throws just like a frisbee. Now, as a mom, I know that outdoor toys often get played with indoors. The Pocket Disc is one of those things that I really don't mind when it gets tossed around in the house. I love how easy it is to roll it up and put it in a pocket, a purse or the diaper bag. I have no doubt that the popularity of the Pocket Disc among college students, outdoor lovers and dog owners will continue to grow. This is, without a doubt, the best frisbee toy I've ever seen. As lightweight and easily folded as it is, the Pocket Disc glides through the air and even my three year old can throw it like a champ.

If you are headed out to play this year, sending a kid to college this fall, have a friend that loves to throw a frisbee for their dog, the Pocket Disc is a must-have and a fabulous and affordable gift. They come in an array of colors and the online site features tons of games and uses for the Pocket Disc.

I highly recommend snagging one today!
