About the product

Soar to new heights with the Air Hogs Atmosphere! This powerful levitating sphere requires no remote control and hovers above any surface! Its spherical shape allows the Atmosphere to smoothly bounce off walls and ceilings for non-stop flight. You are the controller with the high-tech hovering power of the Air Hogs Atmosphere!

  • The Air Hogs Atmosphere magically hovers above objects and can be controlled with the palm of your hand.  The built in LED’s respond to changes elevation as you control how high or low the Atmosphere goes. The Atmosphere is designed to smoothly bounce of walls or ceilings without interrupting its flight pattern.  The included charging cradle displays your Atmosphere as it recharges the internal Lipo battery.

My Thoughts

I’ve been eyeing the Air Hogs products for a little while now.   But I never had the opportunity to review one until now.   Introducing the Air Hogs Atmosphere which is one of the new products from Air Hogs that got launched this year.    I was very curious to see how it worked.  So I waited patiently for my third son’s birthday to see what it looked like.  I knew he would really like this gift.

So this past Thursday we celebrate my third son’s birthday – he has turned 8 this year.  One of the gift we have given him was the Air Hogs Atmosphere I received to review.  He was quite surprised to see it has he had spent part of his afternoon wondering what he would buy with the money my mom had sent him.


The first thing he said was: “I was going to buy this with the money that Mamie had sent…!  I saw it in the Target flyer.”  He was so pleased with it that he wanted to use it right away.


Problem is…. you need 6 AA batteries in order to changer the device that will fly in your home.   So quickly my oldest son went to get 6 new AA batteries and we proceeded to charge the Air Hogs Atmophere.  The 6 batteries goes into the black device on which you will anchor the Atmosphere.


Here’s a close up of the product so you can see what the Atmosphere looks like.


The charging time is quite rapid and our son was able to use it a bit before going to their Thursday night activity.  The Atmosphere will bounce on the hands and walls in your home.  Note that this product is for indoor use only.


Unfortunately for my son, recently while the boys were playing with the Atmosphere rather roughly I think two of the blades broke.   I had one disappointed son.    We have a rule in the house – if you break something that belongs to someone else, you have to pay for it.    Which he did…   Having said this, I feel I need to warn parents who are considering this product that it is not for rough play.   The device worked perfectly well, when you would guide the Atmosphere and direct it.    However, this product is not made to do a slam dunk move like my oldest has done and the Atmosphere came crashing on the hardwood floor.   The Atmopshere is specifically designed for indoor play which is perfect for stormy days or rainy days.   

The Air Hogs Atmosphere is available at your favourite toy store.
