Schaper Toys, mainly known as “The Cootie Company” struck gold in 1975 when they released a toy called “Super Toe Football”.  The simple game of having a plastic football player kick a field goal proved incredibly popular. This concept was expanded to include more and more sports when in 1978 they had five different versions of the concept.
