Door Pong

Based on the design of the 2017 Kidventor Competition winner Alexander

Alexander's Story
A self-described kid inventor from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, 11-year-old Alexander Xiong was originally just one among over 160 contestants who had submitted toy ideas to the 2017 Fat Brain Toys Kidventor contest. “It is astounding how many brilliant minds are among our world’s youth!” said Karen Carson, co-founder of Fat Brain Toys and one of the judges. But as the contest went on, Alexander’s idea only continued to outshine the competition, first winning him a spot among the five finalists and then finally winning him the grand prize – a $2,500 scholarship, $500 in toys, a trip to the 2018 Toy Fair, and the chance to have his invention sold around the world!

"Alexander's invention stood out from the rest because of its simple genius," said Karen, "but also because it was inspired by his love for his sister, who has autism." What is Door Pong? Essentially, it's a no-fail version of ping pong, but also, it's a brilliant way to help kids strengthen their coordination and motor skills while giving their confidence and self-esteem a big boost. Since its release in 2018, Door Pong has become one of Fat Brain Toys' most popular toys with thousands of units having been sold around the world. Alexander even got to present his invention on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! Somebody get this kid some sunglasses because he has a BRIGHT future ahead of him.
