Wow! Stuff makes Heliball patent official

Published on: 22nd February 2019

Heliball is the only official brand to feature patented Auto Hover technology from Rehco. 

The company has confirmed that the exclusive and official licensed Heliball is owned wholly by Wow! Stuff, and incorporates the Rehco patent under licence exclusively in Europe and other regions.

Ewan Gibb, legal counsel for Wow! Stuff, commented: “Following the recent court success of our long-term business partner Rehco, we wanted to make it clear to anyone taking products that look like Heliball that there is only one official Heliball, and that it is the brand leader in entry level price point of RC flying toys.”

Heliball, in partnership with Rehco, is the only official brand to feature an Auto Hover patent. Heliball has additional IP owned wholly by Wow! Stuff, including but not limited to trademarks and design registrations for a flying ball.

Ewan added: “Heliball is exclusive to and owned by Wow! Stuff. We have worked with Steve and Jeff Rehkemper at Rehco for many years, and while many infringing products have copied Heliball we want to make it clear that we will support the pursuit of infringing items and any unscrupulous retailers or persons that do not wish to check if they are selling legal product.”

If you have any concerns, or are selling a remote-control flying ball toy without knowledge of its IP, Wow! Stuff  has encouraged retailers and distributors to contact the company at ewan.gibb@wowstuff.com.
