The Aerobie Skylighter Flying Disc Lights Up the Night

Today we played with the Aerobie Skylighter that lights up so you can see it in the dark. The neighborhood kids (Brynn, Hayden, and Bryson) really enjoyed playing with the Aerobie Flyer Rings this summer. I’m getting to be the Grandma in the neighborhood and the kids know where to get all of the cool toys and find out what’s new on the market.

The Aerobie Skylighter is a giant fly disc with one difference, it has a battery pack in the backside that turn on to reveal a hidden light. As the Aerobie Skylighter whisks through the air it is easy to spot so you never lose track of it. You might lose track of your friend but never the disc.

The star designs distributes the light evenly around the flyer as it spins and just like the original Aerobie Flyer it is large, easy to toss and has rubber edges to protect whatever it hits – like your house or car, and believe me, it happens.

The Skylighter is actually dual purpose. Get this flyer and you only need one for day and night use. Since it has the light it gives you that extra playing time. The retail cost is $15.00 and you can buy it at many local sporting goods store or at a discount online at Amazon.com.

This flyer is best played with at dust. It might be a little too dangerous to play with it when it is pitch black unless you are in a field or large parking with no cars coming.

We had originally thought the light came on when you threw it and glowed but after reading the package again we realized that you turn the switch on to make the light come on. It comes with a long-lasting battery already installed, the kind you find in watches, so there is no need to buy a battery or replace it anytime soon.

Check out the video to see just how it works. The last section of the video shows what it looks like if you are playing with it in the dark.

About the Aerobie Skylighter:
The Skylighter flying disc is great for the shorter days and enjoyable but darker evenings of early fall. Once the sun goes down players can turn on the light module to illuminate the disc for dazzling evening play. The Skylighter disc’s patented aerodynamic design makes it easy for players of all skill levels to throw and its cushioned rim makes for comfortable catches. It retails for $15 and is sold at Sports Authority, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and most other sporting goods stores. It’s recommended for ages 10 and up.
