Wham-O's Windjammers

Now that the weather is getting a little more bearable here in FL the kids are spending more time outside. With 5 kids and 2 very active dogs, I have to find things they all can enjoy so they stay outside longer. 

One of their favorite things which both the kids and dogs can play with is a classic the Wham-O Frisbee! My kids can enjoy being outside getting fresh air and exercise along with bonding with the dogs who love to catch and case the Wham-O Frisbee. Days that it is raining my kids can still enjoy the fun of the Wham-O Frisbee with the new re-launch of the  Windjammers sports arcade game for the PS4. 

 “We are super excited to be partnering with DotEmu as they re-launch one of everyone’s favorite arcade games,” says Olyvia Pronin, marketing director of Wham-O. “Now, fans of the game can enjoy Windjammers both on the screen and in their backyards.” 


Originally launched in 1994, Windjammers is a sports arcade game in which players hurl a flying disc back and forth in various settings. French video game company DotEmu recently announced it would be re-launching the game exclusively for PlayStation, and soon after, partnered with Wham-O in hopes of creating a real-life replica of the game’s flying disc. 

Wham-O’s limited edition Windjammers Frisbee challenges Frisbee fans and Windjammers enthusiasts alike to practice, perform, and compete using all of their favorite moves from the game beyond the screen. 

“Wham-O is all about active outdoor play, which is why we were especially enthusiastic about bringing Windjammers’ flying disc to life,” said Pronin. “It is an absolute must-have collectible for any fan of this awesome game.” 

In addition to launching the original Frisbee, Wham-O is also the company behind several other classic toys including Hula Hoop®, Hacky Sack®, and Slip ‘N Slide®.
