The world's greatest experts from NASA and beyond don't even know how it works. The X-Zylo Ultra is the "flying gyroscope" that can travel the length of two football fields. It's the ultimate game of catch. Having swept the nation by storm, the X-Zylo has been featured in some of the country's highest profile media outlets.

Itīs a bird - itīs a plane - itīs Squiggly Dude(TM)! Playing catch will never be the same with these fun and laughable flying toys.

There are six individual "Dudes" with different personalities and names: Dudley, Ned, Snitch, Dizzy, Hooligan and Fizzle. - Aire Norell
