Like many others have said, this is a cool toy but seems poorly made. I used mine very carefully and never kicked it, just slid it around (I teach physics and used it as a demonstration) and it almost immediately stopped working, it started kind of working again for a week or two then died again. It's light and flimsy.

This is basically a light hovercraft fan that does not go in any particular direction on a flat surface until you move it. It is powered by 4 AA alkaline 1.5v batteries but are not included (although you can use 2x rechargeable 3.7 volt li-on batteries and 2 dummy placeholder batteries). Do not expect this to last forever, since it is constantly draining the batteries once turned on by the switch underneath. It also does not work in grass too well. Short grass or carpet is a stretch, and taller grass is impossible. It performs well indoors or outdoors so long as it has a flat and level surface to glide over. Expect the sound similar to a small blow dryer when in use. The foam/ rubber guards covering the sides are probably not suitable to survive a serious kick from an older child. The plastic in the middle housing the turbine (the soccer ball ⚽️ looking part) has a vent that would probably be the worst part for rainwater to get inside. I do not think stepping on this disk is a good idea, given the construction design and materials used to make it, as it will break if roughhoused.

Super fun--for the one hour it actually worked. My son was so excited to have this, and so were we--as a way to stay active indoors. For the first hour or so, it worked great, gliding down the halls and bumping lightly off of the walls. Then it seemed to lose power and just sit there. We tried changing the batteries, and also cleaning the fan, but to no avail. It just sits and hums, but won't glide. I am returning the product. Maybe the kind without batteries that just glides on a smooth underside would be better.

Doesn't work outside, on grass or concrete, or on carpet inside. If you're inside, you should be on tile or wood floors.
Turn on the fan and it keeps it slightly hovered as you kick it around with your feet. It bounces off walls or furniture and heads a different direction. It's fun. Throwing it is silly because it's too thick to act like a Frisbee.

These surprisingly work great. They were a huge hit at each Christmas party this year (I bought four of them as gifts to four boys under 7), but even the older kids got in the action. You can see some minor wear on it after just a short while of play, but ultimately, it held up better than I thought. And, the soft sides kept the furniture safe! The batteries (Duracell) only last one, maybe two, hours if you are running it constantly so grab a whole pack of AA's if you want to play longer than that! Overall, very impressed and happy with this purchase. :)

It does not hover. I must have read wrong. It is loud, and does not hover at all. I don't even understand why we put batteries in it. They do nothing. It does not move unless you kick it, and then it simply moves on the floor. A ball does the same thing only better. Disappointed in this purchase.

It's a fun little toy, loud like a vacuum and runs out of batteries quickly.

It is a fun air disk to play. My boys enjoyed it but sadly it broke in 2 days of regular play. So reliability is in question. I will try get another and the will see. This disk returned for a refund.
