The Nerf Firevision Sports Flyer Set was a hit with parents and kids. The set includes a pair of Firevision frames (visor) and a Firevision flyer (disc). When wearing the Firevision frames, children will see the flyer glow red as it moves.

The flyer disc was fun to play with by itself, even when not using the Firevision frames. It is a good quality disc sized for easy catch games. Children as young as four could throw it and catch it with ease. The frames add an extra layer of fun to play. During the daytime, using the Firevision frames didn't have much effect on the disc. Nighttime is a whole different story. Using the Firevision frames at night causes the disc to appear to be glowing bright red. All you have to do is turn on a single switch on the frames, and reflector strips on the top and bottom of the disc glow red, making it fun for a nighttime game of catch. There is no charging necessary. The frames come with batteries that are easy to replace if needed.

Anytime, day or night, the disc by itself was a hit. Being able to play in the dark with a bright red glowing disc definitely gives this disc an edge over any other. The package comes with 1 flyer and 1 set of frames, so additional frames need to be purchased for two players to see at night.
