Letter from Joel of Product Evolutions (inventor of Speed Loader)
This is the letter I got:
I was just poking around to see if I could find some press for some products I designed and found your site..
Not that you would really care, since they have been off the market for a while, but “Yes Entertainment” did the Speed Loaders originally. they may have sold the line to “Fun Toys” because they were f***ed cash-wise because of a hard hit they took when releasing a personal communicator device similar to a cell phone called “V link”. V link was recalled and tanked and killed the company.
I know this because I worked for the company that Yes licensed most of their products from.. I was pissed when they did not patent my quick fill device and allowed Larami to get in the game.. Oh well.. I was not getting the royalties from it anyway. It would’a been cool to have the product still available on the market though..
Anyhow.. that is what really happened. I know because I invented the speed Loader.. and some other things.. Check the site below..
