A&A Global Industries

COCKEYSVILLE, MD -- To mark the arrival of the summer solstice and the enhanced leisure-time it portends, A&A Global Industries has launched a "hybrid" bulk toy line, three tattoo series and a novel sticker theme.

Sticky Critters for bulk vending can be sold either in 1.1" or 2" capsules (thus "hybrid"), typically at 25¢ and 50¢. The new line is an updated implementation of the longtime favorite sticky toy, and includes 10 different varmints (rats, snakes, centipedes and more), all in vibrant colors. An eye-catching, two-sided blister display showcases the entire critter collections.

The new A&A temporary tattoo lines include Girl's Club, 10 trendy images including bright butterflies, flowers and similar classic decorative motifs. Described as "super cute," they're expected to find wide application to lower backs, feet, shoulders and other areas exposed by lightweight summer attire.

For boys, A&A has introduced Ink & Iron, a collection of 12 styles incorporating such popular contemporary images as skulls, swords and "medieval symbols." And, for everyone, the new Penguins of Madagascar theme (based on the Nickelodeon television series) includes depictions of 12 characters from the show, including the eponymous penguins, King Julien (a lemur), and chimpanzees Mason and Phil, among others.

For sticker enthusiasts, A&A now offers a series themed to Domo (or Domo-kun), a cartoon character created by Japan Broadcasting Corp. Described as "a strange brown creature hatched from an egg," Domo is depicted performing unexpected activities such as snorkeling and acting as a ninja.

All A&A flat vending items include vivid double-sided displays, and ship in boxes of 300. Suggested vend price is 50¢.

A&A Global Industries offers an extensive range of bulk and flat merchandise and machines as well as parts, accessories and supplies. It maintains shipping facilities in Baltimore and Los Angeles to hold costs down and speed order fulfillment. The company can be contacted by calling (800) 638-6000.
