The new Heliball® Footy Flyer from the award-winning British inventors at Wow! Stuff has been tipped as one of the top toys for summer 2018 as footy fever takes hold in the UK in the lead up to the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia

The Footy Flyer, a miniature droid which adds a modern twist to the game of ‘keepy uppys’, has enjoyed significant success at retail since it’s launch in March 2018.

The lowest price point Flying Remote Control toy available in the world, the entry level flying toy is aimed at footy fans of all ages – from aged 8 to 80.

Commenting on the success, Richard North, CEO of Wow! Stuff, said: “We are thrilled with the fantastic reception the Footy Flyer has received from football fans across the country. Since the product launched just three months ago, it has literally been flying off the shelves, with some retailers struggling to keep up with demand. It is set to be a summer of football, with excitement for the World Cup reaching fever pitch, and the feedback we have received so far confirms that Footy Flyer is set to be the must-have football toy this season.”


Based on the hugely popular LED Heliball®, which has already sold over a million units worldwide, the Footy Flyer is the ultimate keepy-uppy game and challenges players to keep the ball in the air without actually touching it. Using patented proximity sensors, the clever flier will soar upwards when players place a foot or knee beneath it and auto-descend back down after each virtual kick.

Football fans can switch on Auto Hover mode to challenge their friends and family to a keepy-uppy competition or practice by themselves as the built-in LCD screen keeps count. Footy fans can also customise their Footy Flyer with their favourite international team using the sticker sheet included. The miniature droid is best used indoors so provides the perfect solution for practising football skills, whatever the weather.
