taking your flowtoys to Burning Man

Flowtoys love the playa! We've been bringing them to Burning Man since before flowtoys officially existed. Sean created our first production-ready prototypes just before the burn in 2004 and after they survived the week of heavy use on the playa, we determined they were ready for the world. That said nothing is truly playa-proof, so here're a few tips and some pre-playa prep to be sure your flowtoys can keep up with your flow!
