Do you have kids? Grandkids? Maybe you feel like a kid inside? Whatever the case, any youngster is sure to enjoy a flying toy. I found one that's pretty cool — and, for a limited time, very reasonably priced.
The A32 is like a mishmash of ball and drone. Turn it on, then give a flick of the wrist to start the propellers. Now you give it a gentle toss, either to another person or up at an angle to try for a boomerang.
This takes a little practice, as there's really nothing to guide the ball except inertia, but that's actually part of the fun. Because it's entirely enclosed, it's safe to hold, safe to bounce off walls and so on. (Speaking of which, this is definitely an indoor toy. Even the slightest breeze can carry it away.)
Meanwhile, rings of colorful LEDs make this especially fun when the lights are low. Tomzon even supplies stickers so kids can add extra decoration to the orb.
The only bummer here is runtime: The built-in battery takes about 25 minutes to fully charge and lasts for only about 10 minutes.
Still, those are 10 highly enjoyable minutes, and they're blissfully screen-free to boot. I could see this kind of thing selling at mall kiosks for $30 to $40, so $18 feels like a solid deal.
The deadly Fourth of July shooting rampage outside Chicago has some in the suburb of Highland Park contemplating whether to leave the United States. Locals cheered as prosecutors levelled seven charges of first-degree murder against the alleged perpetrator.

The Assembly of First Nations is meeting in Vancouver this week, but what is meant to be the time to take care of important business is now being marred by infighting surrounding its national chief. Delegates voted to end the temporary suspension of RoseAnne Archibald late this afternoon, but the chief's fight isn't over yet. Neetu Garcha explains.

An Ontario lawyer in the eye of a $1-million libel suit launched by an anti-vaccine nursing group says vexatious lawsuits are increasingly being used as tools by special interest groups looking to silence critics when it comes to medical misinformation. Paul Champ, a human rights and labour lawyer based in Ottawa, spoke to CBC News about the lawsuit filed last fall by three Ontario nurses. Kristen Nagle, of London, Kristal Pitter of Tillsonburg and Sarah Choujounian of Toronto have been investig
Footage has emerged showing the chaotic scene during and after a gunman fired on an Independence Day parade from a rooftop in suburban Chicago, spraying the crowd with gunshots initially mistaken for fireworks, killing at least six people. (July 5)
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox talked to Major League Baseball on Monday about postponing their game against the Minnesota Twins after a gunman opened fire on an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago, killing at least six people. After the team's conversation with MLB and contact with local authorities, the game was played as scheduled. The postgame fireworks show was canceled, and a moment of silence was observed before the first pitch of the Twins' 6-3 victory. “Our hearts are with
A Cape Breton, N.S., man has been sentenced for killing his former girlfriend and leaving their seven-month-old daughters to fend for themselves for three days alone in a crib. Dwight Austin Isadore was handed a 14-year prison term after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the death of Cassidy Jean Bernard and abandoning her twin girls. Isadore admitted he struck Bernard with his fists, hitting her in the neck, back and stomach. He believed he hit her 10 times as hard as he could. "I'm really hap
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have said no to him twice over the past four years. But Kris Kobach is nonetheless betting that this can be the year he makes a political comeback. His losses, including a 2018 defeat that handed the governor's office in this Republican-leaning state to a Democrat, might end other political careers. But Kobach, who built a national reputation as an immigration hard-liner while Kansas secretary of state, is now aiming for the state attorney general's office. He f
CANAZEI, Italy (AP) — Rescuers found body parts and equipment as they searched Tuesday for hikers missing following a powerful avalanche that killed at least seven people and was blamed in large part on rising temperatures that are melting glaciers. Officials initially feared 13 hikers were still missing after a huge chunk of the Marmolada glacier cleaved off Sunday in northern Italy. But the province of Trento on Tuesday reduced the number of people unaccounted-for to five, all of them Italian,
Perhaps beavers need holidays too, from all that dam maintenance — especially on Canada Day. Officials say a major washout on the Alaska Highway in B.C. over the holiday weekend was caused by a broken beaver dam that sent a torrent of water through the area, sweeping away a section of the highway in northern B.C. and causing major disruptions for travellers and truckers before a detour opened to traffic on Monday. "There was, you know, quite a bit of water there," said George Smith, a manager wi
