The History of Frisbee
What do pigeons and pie pans have in common? Both played a vital role in the evolution of one of today's most popular toys: the Frisbee. The toy manufacturer Wham-O prefers the generic term "flying discs" for non-branded toys to differentiate them from the company's Frisbees, but most people have become so familiar with the ubiquitous discs that the catchy name now means any aerodynamic flying toy. Regardless of their proper name, the discs are a part of everything from beach recreation to professional sports like Frisbee golf and Ultimate Frisbee.
