COCKEYSVILLE, MD -- Marking the arrival of spring, A&A Global Industries has introduced two bulk vending mixes and a flat merchandise series.
Seven characters from Comedy Central's popular South Park cartoons are commemorated in a line of "buildable" self-vending figures from A&A, just in time for the release of the show's 15th season on DVD. The colorful cast includes Cartman, Kenny, Kyle, Stan, Token, Butters and Wendy, all designed for 2" vending.
Domo, originally the mascot of Japan's NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corp.) television service, became tremendously popular in his homeland -- and later in the U.S. -- following his debut more than a decade ago. He is celebrated in a new line of seven soft, air-filled yo-yos made of elastic material and capable of being stretched 40" or more.
South Park figures and Domo Stretchy Yo-yos are both made for vending in 2" capsules, and are backed by a two-sided blister display.
For flat vending, A&A is launching a series of 14 Bear in Underwear stickers. Inspired by Stupid Factory Studios' much-discussed children's book, the stickers illustrate the bear -- who is on a quest to find optimal undergarments -- and his forest friends, accomplices and critics. A two-sided display card is available for flat-merchandise machines.
