Remember those awesome polystyrene toy planes that used to come in paper sleeves? They were the coolest, right? Well, now you're all grown up, how about a grown-up equivalent—in the shapes of these gorgeous wooden gliders.

Fortunately, Matthew Tait has put together a new set of toy planes called Turbo Flyer. Handmade from balsa and screen printed in a variety of colors—take your pick from black, red, green or blue—they're basically an adult take on the childhood classic.


With a wingspan of 12 inches, the planes are apparently capable of soaring over 50 feet if you throw 'em right—which sounds like a challenge to us. They cost $15 each, or $50 for a pack of the four different colors. [Tait via Design Sponge]
