Arcfire Boomerangs are made from very soft but stiff foam, with aggressive airfoils for a short flight range and an easy return throw. An adult would simply toss this boomerang for a great return and a child above 6 could throw it and probably get a good return with a little practice and persistence. For most kids 8 or above this would be no problem and it's very soft and safe and fun! The flight range is about 20-25 yards radius. Throw with lots of spin and a little high in the air! For RIGHT HANDED THROWERS ONLY.
