The Phlat Ball. The toy with an identity crisis. Looks like fun though. £9.99 ($16.15).
Phlat Ball is half 6″ ball and half 9″ throwing disc and is taking Australia by storm. You Phlatten the ball by squeezing the top and bottom together and it sticks in place, then throw it like a disc, and it pops out into a ball, which is really quite clever. The release from disc to ball is random, so you never quite know if you’re going to be catching a ball or a disc. And of course if you happen to miss-throw it (heaven forbid) and it lands on an inconveniently placed roof, simply wait and when it pops into a ball shape it’ll roll off – neat.
