Funny Toys Distributors in Brooklyn Outdoor sports sales in the Netherlands have grown tremendously over the past year. Sales of Spikeball and Cannabis games to online stores have tripled over the past year and demand for p-stores has exploded again. More than ever, consumers want offline social interactions and want to insert and remove their laptops.
The young company Clarenbeek has not been able to meet the rapidly growing demand for several months. Last summer, dealers added two American brands, Spike Ball and Gunjam, to their portfolio. These games are now sold in 27 European countries. Bos Dean Howe, owner of Brooklyn City, explains the success of the games: “People love the simplest, most challenging games. This greatly expands the target group, from top athletes to families. “
The Dutch weather seems to influence sales more than any other country. The games have soared to Scandinavia (digitally) without a prescription during the winter months, with the Netherlands registering the highest peaks during sunny days and holidays.
A Dutch invention
From June, dealers will also bring a Dutch invention: YOU.FO, a sports game in which an aerodynamic ring is launched with sticks specially designed to hold. YOU.FO is played together or as a team, whether freestyle or tournament. In the Netherlands YOU.FO can be called an official sport, but there is actually more interest in the sport than in other European countries and the UK.
What is Spikeball?
Spikeball was founded in 2008 by American Chris Ruder. Inspired by beach volleyball, this game has a circular grid and a ball, and you play two against two. Each team starts on one side of the earth grid. Once the ball is thrown, the team can touch the ball three times before it goes through the net. The special thing about Spikeball is that once the ball has been played, the ball can be played in any direction. Interaction and good coordination between hand, eye and ball are very important in this sport, which is why many (professional) sports clubs use it as a training tool.

What is Conjam?
Originally from the United States, Gunjam owes his popularity to his athletic nature and simple rules, which makes him popular with children and adults alike. To throw the yellow disc into the black cannon, it takes focus, focus and teamwork. The barrels are 15 meters apart and the two players are following a so-called “case”. The challenge is to get the score by waving (dipping) your hand throwing the disc straight into the cannon or “blocking” your teammate. Gunjam was invented in the United States in the 1980s and has millions of fans around the world. Video: https://youtu.be/hwF90SDWkEI
