This boomerang is therapeutic

I have lived a life of dramatic highs and lows (as perhaps we all have). In such circumstances it it occasionally necessary to leave your house and do something active. But you are alone (as we all are). Perhaps you grew up without a father and catch wasn't an option. You could feel sorry for yourself and live a life of self-pity, or become the father to yourself that you never had. Boomerangs are catch solitaire. This very model of a boomerang has gotten me through numerous internal challenges. They also make great gifts for those you meet who are struggling and need an activity that doesn't require alcohol. (Weed helps). My personal record is 5 catches in a row. Thank you Colorado boomerang company for doing the Lord's work (I'm an atheist. There is no God and we will all eventually die and be forgotten.)

Kids Boomerang

Order a Boomerang for my grandson, got 2 in. When I called they said, “our mistake”, just keep the extra. I donated the extra one for Christmas. Great experience. Great service!!!!

6 yr old new boomerang

The product is exactly as you presented it. However, we can't get it to return when we throw it. He is very disappointed.

It is a little big for most 6 year olds. Try again in a couple years. Flaten out the wings and throw with a lot of spin.

This boomerang was beautiful. Very good quality and I love that instructions came with it to show how to throw. It was just $30 and as long as it doesnt break on the 1st throw, I think it was well worth it.

It works great

I've been throwing wooden boomerangs since the 80s and took a chance on this soft foam 'rang as a gift for my friend's 5 year old active child. It's perfect for indoors throwing, and a gentle toss at a slight angle will have it circling back to you. The foam construction keeps furniture from getting dinged. The only downside is that you can only throw it outside when there is no wind, but it's perfect for the rec room.

Glow fling ring

The glow in the dark fling ring glows 10 times brighter and glows longer than any other rang I've seen. Lots of fun to throw on a dark moonless night

Great Product

My boomerang shipment was delivered very fast and I was really happy with it.
Beautiful designs and if you follow the directions and practice, you'll find the boomerang coming back to you in no time.
For now the Pelican is my favorite, but every one I've tried is great.

Beautiful flyers

After tuning, performance was excellent! Thank You!
