A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Nerf Disk from Parker Brothers (1970)

After the massive sales success of its Nerf Ball, Milton Bradley released the Nerf Disk in 1970. Touted as “The World’s First Indoor Flying Disk”, the soft frisbee was made of the same polyurethane foam as its famous 4-inch ball counterpart. The toy’s spongy material made it safe for indoor fun and games, much to the relief of parents everywhere.

The Nerf Disk measured 9-inches wide and 1-inch tall, with a 2-inch hole in its center. The toy retailed for $1.29, came in assorted base colors, and had a swirl stamped on its face in a complementary colour.
