Toy Wizards would like to thank Kargowell/Jabago for providing us a sample of the UFO Drone Flying Toy for review. You can get your own for $24.99 on Amazon today.
Talk about the toy of the year that completely surprised me– this one might be it.
Now, let me be direct by saying that this toy is very… very, very… very much from China. Which means that there are 300 versions of it on Amazon and none of them are licensed. Which means that honestly, they’re very likely all the same toy. But because this was the brand that reached out to us with the review request, this is the one that we’re linking.
Due to technical issues, the video I took of this thing flying around my living room isn’t working, but we’re going to roll with it.
This UFO drone toy is really cool! It’s a little bit loud, but personally, if I was a kid I would lose my mind. You hold it up, remove your hands from the bottom, and it is off and flying! If you place your hands back under it, it rises up higher. If you put your hands to the side while it’s flying, it changes the drone’s direction. Truthfully, it made me feel like a total Airbender and it was fun to dance around under it with fancy hand movements.
Now, what did the kids think of it? Well, they fought over it, which is a good sign that this thing is exciting. The battery life is pretty good, and it charges in about half an hour. And holy mother, it comes with the most exciting charging cable I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s blue and the light spirals through the cable.
Using this toy inside is great because it’s super light weight and even if it crashes into your collectibles, it just falls to the ground. So far, it hasn’t broken.
While I’m more careful these days of review products I receive from China, this drone is really a fun and nice product. I definitely recommend it and my kids and I are having a lot of fun with it.
I give the UFO Drone toy 4/5 Wizard Stars.
