OgoSport Reveals New Toys for 2015 Spring/Summer Lineup

'Batapult', 'Batapult Jr.', and 'AeroZipp Disk' among new toy offerings by the Brooklyn-based toy maker

Friday, May 1, 2015 — OgoSport, the Brooklyn-based toy maker behind the OgoDisk, is revealing today two new products that will officially launch to retailers at Toy Fair 2015 in NYC and will be part of their 2015 Spring/Summer offering:

1) Batapult -- a new take on the traditional baseball bat, incorporates a hinge in the middle of the bat which creates a pivoting action during the swing, sending the ball flying up 200 ft.

2) Batapult Jr -- a big barrel baseball bat with a scoop on the end that holds the ball in place during the swing, allowing younger kids who haven't developed the eye/hand coordination to hit an incoming pitch to successfully launch the ball off the bat, getting a feel for the mechanics of swinging.

2) AeroZipp Disk -- a disk launcher that sends flying disks over 175 ft whistling as they glide through the air.

ABOUT BATAPULT

The design of Batapult brings a new experience to the game of baseball as well as creates the same striking force as a standard bat but with much less effort. Children ages 6+ can use the bat's catapulting action to strike the ball and send it flying up to 200 ft. Batapult is constructed of durable plastic and comes with a dimpled polyethylene foam ball.

Since the hinging action happens above the handle, children don't need to be as strong to swing the bat because some of the strain is eleviated, making it easier.

Batapult's unique design moves the bat weight closer to the grip- which makes the bat feel lighter during the swing. The result is faster swings with much less effort.

ABOUT BATAPULT JR

The younger brother to Batapult, Batapult Jr. teaches kids to knock em' out of the park with ease! The bat allows for super-power hits, or use the built-in pitching attachment to throw.

The scoop built into the end of the bat can hold the ball onto the bat allowing the child to swing the bat and watch the ball launch into the air. The scoop also makes it easy to pick up the ball on the ground pushing the bat on top of it.

Younger kids that would normally be frustrated with baseball not able to hit an incoming pitch can now experience the joy at a younger age and learn the mechanics of swinging.

ABOUT AEROZIPP DISK

AeroZipp Disk is a flying disk launcher for children ages 6+ than can launch disks over 175 ft. The disks are made of a flexible, plyable plastic with a whistle chamber built in so they whistle as they glide. The disks can be thrown back and forth between players by hand or using the AeroZipp Disk launcher.

Another key feature of the AeroZipp DIsk is the "Launch Activator", a trigger that sets the AeroZipp launcher in three different positions for catching, throwing and storing.
