Spintastics has officially been sold!
Started in 1995 by National YoYo Grand Master Dale Oliver, this small company was a stalwart of the yoyo industry for many years, keeping both Dale and his wife and co-owner Valerie on the road, visiting schools and teaching thousands of kids each year about the art and sport of yoyo play. It’s now been officially announced that Spintastics has been sold to a local business owner named Lars Hundley, owner of YoYoPlay.com.
The new Spintastics has already signed on as a Gold sponsor of the 2016 World YoYo Contest, which is pretty awesome, and we can’t wait to see what new direction the company takes.
Congrats to Dale and Valerie on edging one step closer to a proper retirement, and congrats to Lars on this new venture! Check out the official statement from Valerie below.
After 19 years, we are pleased to announce that our long time and trusted customer, Yoyoplay, of Dallas, Texas has purchased the Spintastics’ line of Yo-Yos and Diabolos, as well as the industry respected name ‘Spintastics’. The Spintastics domain will now point through to their shopping cart. We have retained the manufacturing of our quality line of Spintastics’ Spin Tops under our NEW name, SCIENCE OF SPIN, INC., as well as our Science of Spin school program. This will relieve Dale from the day to day activities of the business allowing both of us to enjoy more of his retirement…but, of course, he’s can’t stop designing new skill toys! I will continue presenting school and library programs and we will continue to support the skill toy community with quality yo-yos, spin tops and diabolos through Science of Spin, Inc. and our working relationship with Yoyoplay.
