Theo and Ora Costers of Theora Design. A couple from Tel Aviv, Isreal who spent their lives together inventing toy and game concepts. Such as Guess Who?, Zingo, Last One Lost! (Pop It!), and Numbers Rumba.
The first Pop It! prototype was made in 1975. At the time, the silicone we use today was not available yet.
Busy with life, the Pop It sat on the shelf. Until the couple’s sons encouraged them to pitch it again.
So Theora Design brought the pro-type Pop It! to Fox Mind in 2013. Then, Fox Mind brought it to Target (Chuckle n’ Roar Pop It!) in 2019. After, a couple months later and Gaitlyn Rae a monkey on Tik Tok made it Famous.
