Kikbo: Like A Hacky Sack With Feathers

Toy Fair 2012: Locomotion

It’s so rare that we get to share some of the most incredible inventions in the universe with you all, which is why I’m so excited about Kikbo, a small puck topped with feathers that lets you and your potentially stoned friends hacky sack the night away in style – with feathers!

The $7 toy has real goose feathers attached to it and it works just like a hacky sack (except, again, for the feathers). The creators, a pair of brothers from Connecticut, are pretty serious about the Kikbo craze and, while I suspect they may need to make a vegan Kikbo for their audience, I don’t see why this shouldn’t be a rousing success.

These guys are actually a pretty scrappy hardware start-up and just because their product uses feathers instead of clouds doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get a warm reception in the parking lots outside of silicon valley headquarters everywhere.
