Along with YouTube creator and movie star, professional football player is high on the list of most popular dream careers for America’s kids. But while only a select few will actually make it to the NFL, there’s a toy on the market that does the next best thing: It makes kids feel like they can sling the ball around like Russell Wilson.
The Aerobie Sonic Fin football doesn’t look like a normal football. Its bright colors, hollow core, flat profile, and a tail with a trio of fins clearly set it apart from a traditional pigskin. But what makes it such a great toy for young football players is not how it looks but how it performs—or rather, how it allows kids to perform.
It starts with the gyroscopic hollow design, which creates more lift than a traditional football shape, thereby increasing the distance it will fly. And for maximum performance, kids can adjust a calibration ring for both left- and right-handed throwers and to increase the spin rate of the ball.
At peak performance and with the right technique, kids can throw the Aerobie Sonic Fin football distances of up to 100 yards, which happens to be the length of a football field. That makes it equally great for long-distance competitive play and pickup games of two-hand-touch.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. The Aerobie Sonic Fin Football is endorsed by Denver Broncos quarterback and nine-time Pro Bowler Russell Wilson (literally—his signature is printed on the side of each ball).
“The Sonic Fin Football gives kids the ability to throw like a pro – farther than they have thrown before or ever thought possible,” said the Super Bowl XLVIII champion. “So many kids aspire to be professional athletes and the Sonic Fin is engineered to deliver the skill, talent and power for them to feel like one.”
So there you have it. This football probably won’t turn your kid into the next NFL star, but it will make them feel like one. And when their football dreams fade, their Sonic Fin memories will still be there.
A unique football that kids can throw farther than they ever imagined.
