Okay, it's not really magic. But still, you have to hand it to Daydream Toy founder Gordon Haas for coming up with a toy that our testers just couldn't put down (or break). After recovering from a bout with cancer, Haas ultimately decided his dream of making toys was the path he was meant to follow. His wife Monique handles much of the business, and their two young sons are in charge of quality assurance (“If they can't break it, no one can,” Gordon says).
The Flash Flyer is fun indoors or out, in daylight or in the dark (LED lights automatically turn on when it’s in flight), and there as many different ways to play with it as you can think up. We found adults were just as entranced with it as kids, and yes, even after flying up to 40 feet away, it still comes back.
