TOSY Robotics' Alien's Flying Object

Age Range: 5 and Up

Price: N/A

The Alien's Flying Object (or AFO) is like a standard boomerang -- only cooler. Bright colors light up the toy when it launches into the air, and it returns exactly from where it was thrown.

TOSY Robotics, headquartered in Vietnam, focuses on producing high-tech takes on traditional toys. The FRIING is a Frisbee with lights that looks similar to the main weapon in the recent film Tron: Legacy, and the TOOP is a glow-in-the-dark motorized top.

TOSY is best known for the Topio, a ping-pong playing robot that debuted in 2009. Topio uses artificial intelligence to continuously improve its game against humans.

While TOSY is popular in parts of Asia and Europe, its appearance at the Toy Fair marks the company's first foray into the U.S. market.
