Renowned magician Anton Riniti dropped to his knees and began to cry the moment he was announced the winner of $50,000 on the ABC television show Steve Harvey’s FUNDERDOME.

“I was completely overwhelmed. For three years, I have dedicated my life to making BeanBagglz the highest quality family game on the market and that moment was my validation,” Chef Anton said. “In that moment, I was above all else grateful. BeanBagglz was given life and the BeanBagglz Movement was born.”

BeanBagglz is so much more than “the ultimate 33-in-1 tossing game.” While it has been named Hottest New Summer Game by TrendSetter Magazine, there is a greater good called The BeanBagglz Movement.

“Are you tired of seeing the tops of your kids’ heads while they look at their devices and games?” asks Chef Anton. “My mission is to bring back the importance of social interaction and family time like we had when we were growing up. Do you remember the joy of hearing your kids laughing as you interacted as a family? Do you remember that look in their eyes when they learned something new or experienced a brand new feeling? Sadly, for many of us those days are gone, but they don't have to be anymore.”

Join the BeanBagglz Movement. A movement to get kids off the couch, off their mobile devices, and learning the importance of interacting socially with their friends and family. “Tell everyone about our Grass Roots Campaign and let's bring the magic of BeanBagglz to families everywhere.”
