The Story of this Invention: One day Rick made a small toy clown out of a tongue depressor, two bottle caps, a piece of thread and a small jingle bell. While talking on the phone, he accidentally twirled the clown around in his fingers and noticed something surprising: the bell swooped up and around, traveling from one bottle cap to the other and landed with a pleasing “click.” This accidental discovery led Rick to improve upon the toy. He dropped the clown theme in favor of basketball, and Hoop 2 Hoop was born.
Cool Facts: Cup and ball toys are some of the oldest toys in history. They have been found in the remains of civilizations dating back thousands of years. In medieval times, a cup and ball type toy called the ‘bilboquet’ was a popular plaything with both children and adults. Hoop-2-Hoop has been sold, among other places, at the NBA store in New York City. It’s easy to master the basic “back and forth” catch with Hoop-2-Hoop, but other tricks can be VERY tricky.
