CopterDarts is a winner of Creative Child Magazine's 2008 Creative Toy Award.

This miniature version of the original CopterBall uses the same foam wings that allows its larger counterpart to spin slowly down in an unpredictable state of OgoMotion. The ball can be used alone or with the OgoSport SportsDisk.
