The Aquatoy story began when the inventor used a bowling ball to play underwater catch with a dolphin named Joe. This experience inspired the inventor to design a toy that could glide long distances underwater. Many prototypes later he developed the AquaDisc. Other toys soon followed, including the popular AquaSkimmer which zips along the surface of the water and a range of fun games and accessories. Aquatoys were sold from 1999 until 2009.
AquaSkimmer 3-pack and AquaDisc reatiled in mass at $9.99. The AquaDisc sold well in specialty at around $12, and the AquadDisc Glow around $14. The AquaDiscFling was around $11 in specialty.
The inventor founded Aquatoy in 1999 to bring to market the AquaDisc he had invented.
He licensed the core products to Aqua Leisure in 2003. AquaLeisure sold primarily to the mass market retailers and Aquatoy retained the rights to sell into the smaller retailers, leveraging the pricing from the mass market manufacturing quantities.
Direct sales ended in about 2007 and the inventor focused on just licensing and other work.
Once the deal with AquaLeisure ended in 2009 Aquatoy was closed.
