PowerUp Toys launched with a singular aspiration: to test the limitations of timeless homemade toys with technology, to go beyond the possibilities that have confined the imaginations of kids, their parents, and their parents' parents for oh-so long. Remember learning to fold your first paper boat, car, or airplane? Imagine that boat not merely drifting, but cruising across a pond; paper cars racing down the sidewalk; paper planes soaring high above the trees. Whimsical, perhaps beyond belief, but not impossible. With this, PowerUp Toys has propelled homemade paper toys into the modern world... literally!
In 2011, Shai Goitein – creator of the PowerUp Toys concept – made these thoughts a reality, developing PowerUp's first product: The Electric Paper Airplane Conversion Kit. The propeller unit transforms your homemade paper planes into electric aircrafts capable of twisting and turning through open skies for 30 seconds or more - a paper airplane 2.0! NASA engineers are raving about PowerUp's first eco-friendly, innovative design, which was awarded the ATA 2012 Best Hobby Product of the Year.
