Boomarings are, however, more than less one type of only a small handful of, if not the only type of, flying toy that can be as much fun to play with as the now vintage Parker Brothers Nerf Boomerang.

Another important point to know; the only company that sells these Boomarings is the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Liar, liar, pants on fire! Can't sit on a telephone wire!

Less than an hour ago, I was playing Boomaring in an open field near my house, and on one return trip, my Boomaring hit me directly right in my lower leg. And guess what? My leg is allright. No bleeding, no bruising, and no stitches. Just a barely visible scratch on the skin surface.

Whatever caused your son's laceration had to have been a metal or glass object. How can you be sure that whatever your son was playing with was not in fact some mash-up boomerang he might have made/assembled out of scrap metal/aluminum? Or was he playing with something made of glass and have it break and him get cut on his lip/upper chin by the glass?

The boomaring is expensive now, at twelve dollars. Plus the outside ring is quite flimsy. It doesn't work as well as they say it will.

First of all you should SUPERVISE your son the first few times he uses it to make sure he has the physical coordination to catch something that is flying at his face. Second, 10 stitches is next to nothing as far as a cut, why you paid a plastic surgeon to do it instead of a regular doctor speaks to your stupidity. Third, Kids get hurt playing with things, deal with it, move on. If your son put a fish hook in his chin,(while fishing) would you deem the fishing rod to be unsafe? Put responsibility where it should rest, not on the object but the operator. If that operator is too young to know any better, guess where that responsibility falls? THE PARENTS.
