Flat-pack toy capable of forming durable 3D shapes now available in the UK through exclusive distributor Big Potato.
Foooty is a clever flat-pack toy which can be hooked together to make durable 3D shapes that can be played with indoors and out. The flexible panels can build a football, frisbee, rugby ball, star, rocket and even a giraffe, which are easy to assemble and even easier to deconstruct. The perfect size and weight to fit into a pocket or bag, the product is also kind on the environment as it’s made out of recyclable polypropylene. Foooty comes in a variety of colours, including red, yellow and blue.
Jean-Pierre Raes, who devised the product, often found himself on holiday wishing he had brought a football: “We always forgot to take a ball for our kids to play. Either it didn’t fit in the suitcase, or we simply just forgot. So I had the idea for Foooty which became a fusion of football, Lego and a Rubik’s Cube.”
Dean Tempest of Big Potato Games discovered Foooty whilst at a toy fair in Germany: “Although it’s not a board game, we fell in love with the idea of a football in your pocket. We’ve been booting Foooty round the office ever since, and expect it to be one of our biggest sellers this year.”
