More than 20 years ago, famed artist Scotty Ziegler took his invention, wife, and two little daughters to the Del Mar fairgrounds in San Diego, CA for one hot summer of selling Floppy Spikes™. The product was an instant hit with kids. Scotty and company spent that month chasing flying Spikes through crowds of fairgoers. Floppy Spike™ was a huge success.
The mold was eventually retired as Scotty moved on to other projects in the toy arena. Out of sight, but never forgotten, the innovative design was tucked away, waiting for its next opportunity.
Their daughter, Ariel, now CEO of Floppy Spike Inc., recalls giving them away to her 5th grade class.
"To this day, there are old classmates that i run into from time to time that tell me how they still have and love their original Floppy Spikes."
This sparked the idea that maybe one day they would fly again.
Decades later, the Ziegler's Old English Sheepdog, Fynn, got his first chance to play with an original Floppy Spike™. He lost his mind! He loved it! Immediately, Ariel began hunting for the original mold. After an exhaustive search, it was finally recovered, and so it all began.
Today, Floppy Spikes™ are made in the USA with the same magic that made them soar over 20 years ago. We hope you and your family will love playing with the one and only Floppy Spike™ as much as we do!
