The Spooner was invented by accident in San Diego, California when Randy Putland was cleaning up the back of his surf shop. The first board was created when he was cutting up a plastic dog igloo to throw it away. The first cut out resembled a skateboard deck in the shape of a spoon and later became the template for the first mould and the start of the Spooner Board Toy Company.

The manufacturing process for the Spooner is as original as the product itself. Each board is 100% made in the USA and guaranteed for life.

The boards where first introduced to the physical education market in 2010. Later that year they became a most popular activity in over 5,000 P.E. programs across the country.

In the summer of 2010 a Texas toy store owner discovered the boards at her son’s school. The boards immediately became a best seller in her 2 locations and within 6 months over 100 Learning Express stores where reporting the same.

In 2011 the Spooner was voted Astra’s Best Toys for Kids, Creative Child’s Toy of the Year, and Learning Express’s Best New Vendor and Most Innovative Product!

In 2007 the first Spooner Board was accidentally cut out of a dog igloo at Old Town Surf Shop in San Diego. Soon after the first prototypes where built using wood and then epoxy.
