Razor® Has Fans Racing for the Crazy Cart™

Hot Holiday Toy Spins to the Top of Must-Have Gift Lists for Both Kids and Adults

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Razor USA LLC, innovators of outdoor fun and home of the iconic Razor® kick scooter, is set to race past holiday sales records thanks to the new Razor® Crazy Cart™. Sales of the toy have increased 14-times in four weeks making it one of the top-selling items this season. And despite analysts' predictions for lukewarm holiday sales, the Crazy Cart (MSRP: $399.99) is nearly sold-out, leaving parents – and Santa – chasing after the hard-to-find hot toy.

A unique break-out toy appealing to both kids and adults, Crazy Cart became a viral sensation this summer with its introductory YouTube video, viewed by more than one million people in just a few days.  Since then, it's topped major hot holiday toy lists for both thrill-seeking kids and grown-ups alike. 

Razor released its newest YouTube video, "Santa Claus VS the Magic Christmas Gift," a Christmas music parody staring the big man in the red suit. Parents still looking to fulfill holiday wishes with the Crazy Cart might relate to Santa's adventure.

"The Crazy Cart's success is an amazing metaphor for the incredible ride we've experienced since we first introduced the original Razor kick scooter to America," said Razor's Founder and President, Carlton Calvin. "Razor's goal is to find innovative toys with break-out appeal and the  Crazy Cart is absolutely living up to our hopes as one of the hottest toys of the year." 

The Crazy Cart was the dream machine for Ali Kermani, a long-time Razor employee who went on to develop the Crazy Cart as the showcase for his MBA thesis at UCLA's Anderson School of Management. Kermani first became connected with Razor during a chance run-in years ago at a skate park with Carlton Calvin, Razor's future president.
