Who invented the Frisbee? What was the purpose of the invention?
I believe it was from the Frisbee Pie Company in the 1930's. Employees on break discovered that the pie pan made an excellent disc to toss to each other. Lo, it was born. Frisbee has long been out of business but the toy lives on.
Brett has it pretty much right. The WHAMO toy company took the idea and flew with it, creating an elegant aerodynamic disk that is responsible for many of the most pleasurable outdoor activities I have enjoyed with my clothes on!
