EVER PLAY WITH:

Hula Hoop, Frisbee or Slip 'N Slide?
That Was Spud Melin & Rich Knerr

For Funomenal Fun!

It's what makes a hoop rotate around your hips, a disc fly gracefully across the sky, or a Whirly-Go-Round spin a child without motors or batteries. Spud and Rich recognized there are fundamental properties of physics, chemistry and other sciences that fascinate  children of every age. Products that employ such properties can seem phenomenal! Combining that insight with innovation and modern style, we're creating Funomenal Fun for the another generation.

Who Took the Play out of Playtime?

Spud 'N Rich believes kids deserve options for physical play  that are more fun than staring at a screen, engaging their bodies, brains and imaginations!

FOR FUNOMENAL FUN!

Chuck has been in love with the idea for Whirly-Go-Round since he was six years old. His Dad and Spud had played around with a metal contraption that Chuck says was a blast but they never succeeded in making it a real product. "I just remember the thrill of being able to spin as fast and long as I wanted."  I told my Dad 20 years ago that I wanted to do this. He responded as he always did, "Well, good.  Do it!" Chuck regrets, "I can't believe I waited so long my kids have missed out. Thankfully, they gave me grandchildren!"

In 2019, he set out to reinvent this cherished toy from his family's past. Chuck has developed 18 different versions. Now he's refined the ultimate design, one as beautiful as it is thrilling to ride. "I know Dad and Spud would be proud that I solved the issues that stopped them, and that children will finally enjoy the 'funnest' product they never made! I guess this nut didn't fall far from the fun tree!"
