POINTE-CLAIRE, QC, Canada -- New for 2012 is the third in Allstar Vending's series of Funky Face Disguises, which has been a top seller since its introduction in 2008. The new series adds colorful "hair extensions" to the kit.
"Kids love changing up their look with hair accessories, so this promises to be a big hit," said Allstar vice-president Sharon Shlien. Each capsule contains either one beard, a mustache, hair extension or two sideburns. A colorful display highlights the products and promotes their collectability. Allstar suggests a 50¢ vend price.
The first Funky Face Disguises series won the National Bulk Vendors Association's Best 2" Capsule at the association's 2008 trade show.
Also joining Allstar's bulk merchandise line is Hair Wear for 1.1" capsules. Hair Wear is a new twist on the 1" moustache mix presently in the line. Each capsule contains either a hair extension or a moustache. Suggested vend price is 25¢.
Following the success of 2" Frog Flingers, Allstar has unveiled 2" Ninja Flingers. Like the predecessor frog design, Ninja Flingers are colorful figurines molded of an elastic material to a shape that provides a built-in catapult. They are larger than Frog Flingers, but retain the 30-ft. maximum range of the earlier design. Allstar's Ninja Flingers initially will stick to ceilings, walls and other hard surfaces. They're supplied in assorted colors -- purple, blue, red and black -- and are designed for vending at 75¢.
