WHAM-O! Big News For Matt Fleming's Monster Pong!

matt's Avataren_staff_badge

I’ve got more great news! Last week it was Gyro Bowl… this week it’s Monster Pong!

I haven’t been shy about expressing my love for Monster Pong, developed by Edison Nation member and Everyday Edison Matt Fleming. We’ve had some significant challenges and setbacks along the way with Monster Pong but we’ve always stuck to our guns.

When the retailer who committed to it basically stopped ordering anything and everything that it could in order to weather the economic downturn, we went direct. We bought a container of Monster Pongs, built a dedicated Web site at www.MonsterPong.com and started guerrilla marketing.

Our bet paid off. With a proven sales record under our belts and a hardcore team that doesn’t ever quit, we have landed a huge deal for Monster Pong…

… or should I say “WHAM-O’s Monster Pong?!!!”

That’s right, we’ve partnered with toy GIANT WHAM-O to blanket retail chains nationwide with the greatest improvement to Ping Pong since the beer cup!

Please take a minute to join me in congratulating Matt Fleming on his awesome product and wish him well on his continued Monster Pong success!

If Bruce Lee were still alive, imagine him in a Monster Pong commercial!

Fantastic and congratulations. It’s a great twist to an old game. Get it on some kids TV show to make it move even faster.

Hi Matt,

I purchased Monster Pong for my son for Christmas. He and his friends love it. My son is a high school senior and co president of a newly formed ping pong club at school. He’s excited about using Monster Pong outdoors in the spring. He’ll be taking MP to college with him next year and he’s been encouraging his friends to buy some tables to expand the fun! What a fantastic idea.
Congratulations on all your success. I know there is much more to come. Way to go with snagging “Wham-O”…It’s great that EN was so helpful, supportive and encouraging…..I love happy endings.

All the best to you!

Judy K.

Pricey, at first I thought it was a misprinted price. Now that I think about it and compare it to the price of a ping-pong table well not so bad then. Too pricey for me though. Although I’m sure you’ll sell tons!!!!

just got back from a long day at work….to such a great announcement.

First, thanks to Matt and the EE/EN team for never giving up on MP, and taking it to this level. WHAM-O indeed!! Frisbee, slip and slide, hula-hoop, hacky sack, super bouncy ball. Are you kidding me? Who has a track record like that? Maybe Lady Gaga or Elvis? I am really hopeful.

Second, thanks to the amazing EN community and for all their continued support, and all their congrats. Creative and community-minded folks rock!

I have taken Monster Pong to bars for Meet-ups, and once people start playing, they seem to love it! My hope is that the public will be able to see how fun and convenient this game can be, even without yet playing it, and I am sure that Wham-O’s seal of of approval will really help.

Hoping that MP will be EE/EN’s homerun #4!!!

Always keep hope alive.

Congratulations Matt and the E.N. team. I love stories of determination and extra effort. That is a great inspiration for all of us who are trusting E.N with our I.P.
Is there an E.N. Hall of Fame?
