Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

We have a lot of really cool inventions from Connecticut. Hamburgers were allegedly created at Louis’s Lunch in New Haven. The lollipop as we know it was first made in 1908, also in New Haven. The first helicopter was flown in the Nutmeg State in 1939. There’s a lot of history that has been made here! But did you know that one of the coolest inventions from Connecticut was a toy known and loved all over the world, by kids, adults, and dogs alike? The world has Connecticut to thank for this famous flying disc!
Nowadays, Mattel Toy Manufacturers owns the right to Frisbee. The number of Frisbees (or off-brand flying discs) sold each year is estimated to be more than the number of combined baseballs, basketballs, and footballs combined! We’d say that’s quite the success story for this toy from Connecticut.
