the toy man
Also on the Summer fun toy list, this one from Chris Byrne, The Toy Guy. It is the Wiener’s Circle from Waboba, For ages 8 and up, $29.99.
It’s a flying hot dog game! Wiener’s Circle is a target game that hangs on any flat, upright surface and challenges players to throw Velcro hot dogs at the open mouths on the target. Super stupid, and super fun. And everything folds down to fit in a bag for travel fun.
This is just one of nearly a dozen summer toys that kids and adults alike will enjoy. The full list of “CHRIS BYRNE’S, GREAT TOYS FOR SUMMER FUN” is on the website thetoyguy.com.
