Remember the foam and balsa wood glider toys for kids that we played with as children? Well, there’s a very good change they were made by Guillow’s! In fact, there’s probably an excellent chance that our parents and grandparents played with the very same brand! I absolutely love when a company spans generations like that. Playing together with Guillow’s Foam and Balsa Wood Gliders makes me feel like my son is connected not only to me, but the great-grandparents that he never really had a chance to get to know. There is a rich history that goes along with a company like that!

Guillow’s Foam and Balsa Wood Glider: High-Flying Toys for Kids

Jacob and I received a fabulous package filled with Guillow’s Foam and Balsa Wood Gliders. It just happened to arrive on one of the first nice days of the season, so we were able to dive right in and get playing! Our package included a selection of both foam and balsa gliders. Each glider took less than five minutes to assemble. Jacob is 8, and he was able to do the majority of the work on his own. I stood by the assist a bit. The foam gliders in particular are very easy for small hands to put together, which gives your kids a fantastic confidence boost!

Our favorite, the Sky Raider, took maybe a minute to put together and another couple of minutes to decorate with the stickers. Jacob did a custom job on his. He was so excited about flying it that he wouldn’t even let me finish putting on the stickers with him! He kept saying “okay, Mom, okay, it’s fine, it’s ready!”

Once we got it together, it was time to take it for a spin! We have a huge back yard. I just wish it was a little more green right now. Sorry about the ugly leaves, but on the other hand, I’m really just happy to see the actual ground instead of snow after the crazy winter we had! We also have a German Shepherd that thinks every flying object is meant for her to catch, so I had to put her inside while we were playing! She was most unhappy about that! Jacob got in position to launch the Sky Raider.

I started snapping pictures like crazy to show you how well it flies! Let me tell you, these babies really soar!

Jacob had so much fun flying his gliders. They’re such great outdoor activities for kids! The best part: they start at just $1.79! In fact, all 7 gliders that we received come to under $20, making them great economical toys for kids. Check out Guillow’s website to see more great gliders!
