Wham-O Frisbee Review: If It's Not A Wham-O It's Not A Frisbee!

Wham-O Frisbee Review:  If It's Not A Wham-O It's Not A Frisbee!

Genuine Official Wham-O Frisbees 


If you're looking to buy a  Frisbee, you've come to the right place! This page features the genuine, official Wham-o Frisbee. You will discover what to look for when you are choosing a Frisbee and, as a bonus, learn a bit of trivia about Frisbees.

Wham-o Frisbees are available in various sizes and styles from mini ones to professional tournament ones. They are available for use recreationally and for use competitively in sports like Ultimate, Disc golf, Freestyle and Dog competitions.

Did You Know...

  • That the word Frisbee came from the Frisbee Pie Company in Connecticut?
  • That the game of Frisbee began with a pie plate?
  • That in 1957, Walter Frederick sold his idea for a toy flying saucer to the Wham-O Company in California? That they created a plastic disc that was almost impossible to break and they called it the Frisbee?

What To Look For When Buying A Frisbee


A good Frisbee should be comfortable. It should have a feeling of thickness and strength. You probably know that cheap Frisbees are readily available and can be purchased for as little as a dollar at the dollar store but they do not last and they do not fly very well. We personally have a bin in the garage full of cheap Frisbees but once you have used a real one you discover that the cheap ones really are bad.

If you are asking yourself what kind of Frisbee is the best for me and you are a recreational player, choose a basic Wham-O Frisbee.

If you are looking for a Frisbee for your child, it should be small enough for your child to grasp and hold comfortably.

Wham-O's 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Series Frisbee Disc SetWham-O's 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Series Frisbee Disc 


2007 marked the 50th anniversary of the original Frisbee disc. Wham-O produced this collector's item in celebration. This set includes a 175 gram UPA approved competitive frisbee with graphics celebrating the 50 years. These discs are definitely softer. They fly better and are easier to catch than cheap Frisbees. No longer readily available at retail outlets, you can still find this set on eBay:


Frisbees Are Affordable Fun 


I am amazed at the low cost of Frisbees. Well, not I suppose if you consider that they are just pieces of plastic. Still, for less than $10 you can buy an activity for that is easy and fun and encourages physical activity. It is easy to grab a Frisbee and take it along wherever you are going and playing with a Frisbee does not require any other equipment. What better choice could we make for our families and our friends in this day and age? Frisbees are fun for everyone. You don't have to be tall, strong, young or old! Just grab a Frisbee and go!  You can find Amazon's complete collection of Wham-O Frisbees here.

  1. I haven't played with a Frisbee in years, but I honestly had no idea there was such a huge difference in brand. You review makes me want to get a new Wham-O and run to the backyard with the pups. They make pretty good catch and retrieve game partners. It would be a lot of fun! Perhaps, we will even invite their daddy to play.

  2. We have a big yard, but I still remember needing to crawl out onto the porch roof from the boys' bedroom window occasionally to retrieve a stray Frisbee (actually it was probably one of the kiddos who did the crawling). Now I'm wondering if they were gen-u-wine Frisbee brand. Guess I need to get another one to have on hand for visits. There's no fun quite like Frisbee fun!

  4. That's funny, Cynthia. Made me want to grab our Frisbee and go to the park too even though it is definitely becoming winter here. I'm sure there is a special kind of Frisbee for dogs who compete.

    Susan, I bet your "boys" would love to find a Frisbee at the house when they visit.

    Thanks for your visits here, ladies.

  5. Frisbees are so much fun. We've had quite a few over the years and everyone always enjoyed them. I think the most fun was when we lived near the beach and played Frisbee along the shoreline. Fun review!
