Frisbee® - Non-Toxic, Since 1958

Remember the good old days, when toys didn't get recalled for deadly paint? But there are many things about the good old days that are best left back there. Like this dude's shorts. And stupid jingles.

No longer an American company, Wham-O, makers of the Frisbee, sold to a Hong Kong company last year - toy and game manufacturer Cornerstone Overseas Investments, Limited.

So if your dog dies after catching too many Frisbee tosses in the backyard, maybe something in that Chinese glow-in-the-dark plastic killed him.

  • speaking as an ultimate player of 16 years...wham-o sucks. the only good thing about them is the invention itself. the discraft ultra star 175 mold is the pinnacle of frisbee innovation (actually, their golf discs are even more impressive, but I wouldn't want to try and catch one of those). the only thing 'toxic' about a disc these days is getting hit in the face by one...oh, and for the record, discraft is made in the good ol USA. (, I believe....yup, that's it)

  • They really wore themselves out with the lyrics for that jingle.
