WHAM-O, INC. Company Profile

The Wham-O slingshot has scored more hits in its time than the Beatles. The company's slingshot was a smash, and other cultural icons followed: the Frisbee, Hula Hoop, Hacky Sack, and Slip 'N Slide. The Hula-Hoop turned 50 in mid-2008. The toy maker also offers other outdoor toys, such as pint-sized Baskin-Robbins ice-cream makers and surf and snow items under the Morey, Boogie, and SLEDZ brands. Its more than 70 products are sold in toy and sporting goods stores worldwide. Founded in 1948 by Arthur "Spud" Melin and the late Richard Knerr, Wham-O was named for the sound made by slingshots hitting their marks. The company is owned by CEO Kyle Aguilar and a group of investors.
