Spintastics Skill Toys, Inc. has been owned and operated by Dale and Val Oliver since 1997. Dale, the
1992 World Yo-Yo Champion, began designing his line of yo-yos in 1995, predominantly for his
renowned “Science of Spin” school program, with quality and affordability in mind. His world class
performance style, teaching ability and remarkable foresight in research and development, along with
Val’s yo-yo and spin top skills promoting the ‘Science of Spin’, and Business Degree, resulted soon in the
retail market taking notice. This placed Spintastics in the top 5 U.S. yo-yo manufacturers, making it the
only manufacturer of a yo-yo owned and designed by a world champion himself.
His designs quickly blossomed not only into a full line of quality yo-yos, but that of spin tops and
diabolos as well. In addition to a Fort Worth, Texas manufacturing facility for spin tops and yo-yos,
Spintastics also manufacturers yo-yos in Taiwan and diabolos in mainland China.
Dale is now semi-retired, but remains active in his never-ending design of skill toys. Val continues to
present the ‘Science of Spin’ to students in schools and libraries across Texas.
In September 2015, Lars and Andrea Hundley, owners of Yoyoplay in Dallas, Texas, one of Spintastics’
long time and valued customers, purchased the manufacturing of the Spintastics’ line of Diabolos and
By April 2016, they also acquired the manufacturing of the Spintastics’ line of Yo-Yos, as well as the
trademarked name ‘Spintastics’ itself, holding and maintaining the quality reputation in the skill toy
Due to these organizational changes, Spintastics Skill Toys, Inc., is now named Science of Spin, Inc. It
remains the sole manufacturer of the Spintastics’ Line of quality Spin Tops and Dale and Val Oliver
remain the owners. Science of Spin, Inc. maintains the Science of Spin program and continues to supply
all lines of Spintastics’ skill toy products to schools and professional skill toy demonstrators across the
country in the same manner that has always been done.
The Spintastics domain continues, now owned by Yoyoplay, and links directly to Yoyoplay’s
Spintastics’ product page, where all three lines of products will be available. Yoyoplay has agreed to
handle the web site sales of Spintastics’ Spin Tops as well, allowing Dale and Val the much deserved
freedom from the daily activity. Web site customers can be assured that this IS the official Spintastics’
Spin Top page even though it is flowing through the Yoyoplay website. Science of Spin, Inc. will remain
the manufacturer, contact and seller of spin tops to wholesale accounts.
We are excited about this unique and successful collaboration between our companies, Science of
Spin,Inc. and Yoyoplay, assuring the quality line of skill toy products you rely on for years to come.
