The Orb
The Orb
Company: EB Brands
Location: Miami
Price: $49.99
Age: 8 and up

This lightweight remote-controlled UFO toy is 8.5 inches in diameter, weighs 30 grams and features an unusual design: It's a hollow orb with propellers in the middle, encased in a protective foam shell.

"The Orb can run into the floor or the wall, and the shell will help it to bounce off," said EB Brands' Chris Wilson. He added that the toy is built with "auto upright" technology that allows it to always take off and land in an upright position.

The Orb also features LED lights that help give it an alien spaceship look.

"The whole concept, and the green glow with the lights, is to give kids the feeling that this is alien technology that's been captured," said Wilson.
