Welcome to Whistle Racer International (Pty) Ltd
Whistle Racer is a company built out of a father’s love for his daughter. In 2012, Chris Hattingh (owner of Whistle Racer) endured a violent home invasion with his family. Everything was stolen…including all the kid’s toys. That weekend it was raining and his children wanted toys to play with. Chris had a suitcase in the garage which had all of his toys in it from the 1980’s, which he gave them to play with. In it was a toy that worked by blowing into the back of it. The kids did not stop playing with this toy the entire weekend. On that Sunday night, Chris asked his kids for the toys back to put away. His daughter asked him to buy her one of these toys for herself. He told her they don’t not make them anymore. Her reply was: “Why don’t you make them Daddy???”. That was the “light-bulb” moment where Whistle Racer was born. Turning a negative experience into positive life changer.
