Brothers Jeff and Steve Rehkemper founded Rehkemper ID--short for Rehkemper Invention & Design--in 1983. Their company, now known as REHCO has invented hundreds of products since then. Their creations have earned more than $1 billion in sales for clients such as Mattel, Fisher-Price, Hasbro, Tiger, and Spin Master. The firm may be known best for reinventing the flying toy category with their air powered planes and the first remote-controlled helicopter. REHCO's Rubik's Revolution won the 2007 TOTY Game of the Year. In November 2008, Jeff, Steve, and Rehkemper Invention & Design were recognized for Excellence in Toy Design at the Toy and Game Inventors Awards Dinner held by the Chicago Toy & Game Group.
