JMC Enterprises LLC, located in Minneapolis, MN created in 2004 by the owner and founder John M Castillo who had an invention that was first thought-up in 1992 and did not act on, until being urged on by friends and family to produce and market the Idea, originally named the “Sports Clapper” the concept was simple, take two elongated rectangular pieces of foam (one for each hand) and clap or “whack” them together recreating and greatly amplifying the sound of clapping hands and when not being used as a cheering device, the two clappers could be banded together with a dual purpose carry strap that would band the two sections together enabling the clappers to be used as a seat cushion, or a lap/snack tray.
As a cheering device the “clappers” could be made in various, team colors, with or without team names, logos, mottos, player’s numbers, etc. making it a colorful, fun way to get the crowd involved in cheering for ones team, and or to distract the opposition, for the home field advantage, the clappers could also be accessorized with attachable pom-poms, hankies, bells, whistles, etc. The decision was made in 2002 that the cheering device (cheering device, seat cushion, & snack tray), was something that the public would be interested in. Then during the research and development period, the products name was changed to “Whacker Clappers” and the patent application process started, and the Creation of JMC Enterprises LLC.
“Whacker Clappers is the next generation in cheering devices for sports fans all around the world” and hopfully will go on to become the most popular cheering device out in the market, due to its durable, multifunction, and user friendly design. The foam material is the key to creating the unique loud clapping sound! And the combination of the shape and material makes it a muti-function (cheering device, seat cushion, & snack tray) cheering device that is way more durable, Effective and Easier to use! When compared to inflatable cheering devices.
