Chuck Knerr, Richard Knerr’s Son, Introduces Whirly Go Round

October 30 01:03 2021
Spud ’N Rich is an American company that has launched an Indoor Thrill-Ride for kids called, “Whirly•Go•Round.” Chuck Knerr, the son of the legendary maker of Frisbee and Hula Hoop, founded the company to honor Spud and Rich, his mentors, and bring their unique brand of Funomenal Fun to a new generation.

Their iconic American toy company, called Wham-O, started in Rich’s parents garage where he and Spud made and sold slingshots by mail order. From the 1950s into the 80s, they reshaped the toy industry with inventions such as Hula Hoop, Frisbee, Slip N’ Slide, Super Ball, Trac-Ball, Silly String, and many others. Chuck Knerr is the son of the late Richard Knerr who co-founded Wham-O with Arthur “Spud” Melin.

Whirly•Go•Round is an indoor thrill-ride for children aged between four and ten years, and as the brand states, it will allow parents to “make any room an amusement park of Funomenal Fun.” 

Contrary to the plastic toys Wham-O made famous, the Whirly•Go•Round is manufactured of sustainable bamboo, which provides it with sturdiness and beauty. All Whirly Go Round products are shipped fully assembled and are hand-crafted on Chuck’s family farm in Kentucky.

The brand describes Whirly•Go•Round’s durability as “heirloom quality”. According to Chuck, the company’s goal was to “make Whirly•Go•Round a toy that wouldnt end up in a landfill. With care, it could be handed down to your childrens children.

The Whirly•Go•Round is backed by a 1-year warranty and are shipped for free. Furthermore, the brand is confident that all children will embrace Whirly•Go•Round, offering 30-day returns and full refunds as additional guarantees.

Spud ’N Rich’s Whirly•Go•Round is not just engaging and entertaining, but it also helps children grow fit and strong:

Physically active fun is good for kids! Whirly•Go•Round develops a child’s gross and fine motor skills to enhance fitness, balance, coordination, and strength. Spinning also provides powerful vestibular stimulation that can enhance brain development and sensory processing.

Whirly•Go•Round has been warmly received by happy children and satisfied parents. Lisa, a single mom and a verified buyer stated:

It looked like joy. Being a parent makes you happy to see your child happy. Its happy to see them being active and not sitting around not doing anything, and thats my biggest thing, getting  away from the video games.

Jessica, another satisfied customer, has emphasized that Whirly Go Round kept her children occupied, engaged, and entertained, stating:

I work from home, my company has gone full remote, so Ill be home permanently. Theres a lot of digital play, a lot of TV time, a lot of just trying to find something to kind of keep them occupied and out of my way during my work hours. Its not a problem anymore.
