The 2013 catalog unveils seven new Pocket Disc designs that our Facebook Fans helped us to pick out. Each new design is named after a Mayan ruin. The ancient Mayans built their amazing cities to last, and we build our Discs the same way.(Pocket Discs have survived for years in Elementary school PE programs). Here is the public debut:
Tulum, is the ruin American tourists are most likely to see because it is a short drive from Cancun. Even still, we know one American who has been to Cancun 4 times and never gone to see Tulum. Don’t be that guy!
Tikal is located in Guatemala. It is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centres of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, and host of a whole lot of disappointed end-of-worlders this past December.
To get to Yaxchilan, you must drive hours through southern Mexico, stop in the middle of nowhere, board a very long and narrow boat (designed to cross over whirlpools) on a crocodile infested river that divides Mexico and Guatemala. How do we know? We’ve been there!
Pronounced TO-NEE’-nah. Isn’t that beautiful?
Next, Chichen Itza:
Ever watched that powerful scene in Indiana Jones where the priest pulls the still pumping heart out of a man? Well, that wasn’t entirely fabricated. Pulling the hearts out of live captives was done at Chichen Itza in order to give the Sun God power to fight the forces of the night.
Archaeologically, one of the most significant ancient Mayan sites located in Southern Mexico.
Named after a female goddess of fertility and creativity, and located on Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) this is hands down our favorite ruin. Why? Because we are all about empowering women and creativity. It is the amazing creativity of our Mayan artisans who thought up these 2013 designs. With their help we are following the immortal words of Willy Wonka ” If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it; want to change the world… there’s nothing to it.”
