It seems like the simplest toys are often the funnest ones!
That’s what we thought when we were sent a package of the hottest new toys available at select Toys ‘R Us stores, FyrFlyz. FyrFlyz are essentially lights on a string, yet they have immense replay value for kids of all ages. Have you seen these new light toys yet? If your children are anything like mine and love playing with light sabers, glow sticks and generally anything else that lights up, they’ll love FyrFlyz.
There are three different color combinations – the Blue Angel, the Cyclone, and the Nytfyr. You basically grasp each side of the string using the finger holes and twirl it, then either tighten or loosen the pressure to make a bunch of cool light effects. The light effects have fun names like Black Hole, Spinning Stars and Fyrewheels just to name a few.
You can even create your own tricks to be featured in the Tricks Gallery on the FyrFlyz website! We have yet to master all of the ones shown on the website but it’s definitely fun trying!
I can see these being a great toy to have on hand for backyard picnics and outings. They would especially fun for camping trips since they require so little storage space! Get two or three of them going at once and your family will have fun together laughing and competing to create new tricks like mine did :).
I’m adding FyrFlyz to Hen’s 2011 Holiday Gift Guide as a perfect stocking stuffer for ages 8 and up. they’re affordable and fun! Make sure you check out FyrFlyz on Faceboook and @fyrflyz on Twitter for surprise giveaways and updates!
