Like its ancestor, the plate, this lightweight disc is prone to soaring and spinning after a flick of the wrist. Unlike the plate, the Frisbee's roots are found across New England, particularly at Yale University. Students tossed pie plates. A plastic version soon hit the market. Wham-O delivered the Frisbee in 1955 and was later bought out by Mattel. The disc stars in various sports, like Frisbee Golf and Ultimate Frisbee, where players toss it to teammates while gradually progressing up the field.
