Summer is coming, so it is time to look at some cool outdoor toys like this Switchblade Boomerang. This boomerang can be folded up to fit into your pocket, with the blades quickly popping out when you hit the spring-loaded button. Although you can imagine it is a batarang that Batman keeps in his utility belt for crime fighting, you don’t have to be a superhero to use this boomerang. It is actually easy to throw and safe to catch because it is constructed of soft, spongy foam.
Made from three spongy, spring-loaded blades, this cool piece of kit will fold up and slide easily into a pocket, bag, or utility belt. When you find yourself in some space, just press the central button and the three foam blades will fling out and lock in place. Once you’ve paused from dramatic effect, throw the Switchblade and it will arc back to you. Or at least, it should. It takes a bit of practice, but this brilliant twist on throw and catch is great fun to play on your own, or with friends.
