Subject: Richard Knerr--Co founder of Wham-O dies

Written By: gemini on 01/18/08 at 4:50 pm

I'm sure we all own or have owned something from Wham-O at one time or another.  The Frisbee, Hula Hoop, Silly String, Superball among other awesome toys from my childhood. In 1958 over 25 Million Hula Hoops were sold in the United States in the first 4 months alone! Probably one of the biggest toy fads ever!
RIP Mr. Knerr  :(
