History of FLING! The Flyin’ Disc
As a high energy and active youth, Joseph Howard never missed an opportunity to participate in sports, athletic challenges or new discoveries.
He also never missed an opportunity to get RAD anytime, anywhere. Before Joseph could walk he was riding a skateboard, solo!
From an early age Joseph’s imagination and creativity were stoked by the stories he and his dad created together while traveling between California and Utah.
Joseph and his father would spend the summers together Imagining, Creating, and Improving their own Toys & Sporting Goods.

On the first day of summer, between Joseph’s sophomore and junior years of high school, his dad offered him this challenge:
“I would like these few households items to serve as the inspiration for creating something that will significantly improve a great number of peoples lives. And, it shouldn’t cost them more than 20 bucks.”
What started out as a therapy device soon became the inspiration for patent pending Grip.Toys high performance throwing toys, fidgeting objects and desk companions.
Hundreds of iterations later, through Active Discovery, FLING! The Flyin’ Disc was born.
