Be A Trend-Setter

What unexpected way can you use something to start a new trend?

From 1871 to 1958, the Frisbie Baking Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut, made pies that were sold to many New England colleges. Students found that, when tossed upside down, the empty tins would fly for long distances and could be caught by a partner. Building
inspector Walter Frederick Morrison and his partner Warren Franscioni invented a plastic version of the Frisbie tin plate. The “Pluto Platter,” whose name would later change to Frisbee® – a variation on the pie company name - began production by the Wham-O toy company in 1957.
