POINTE-CLAIRE, QC, Canada -- New from Allstar Vending are two 2" capsuled items and a skull-themed temporary tattoo line with wide appeal.

Dinosaurs are longtime favorites with boys and girls alike, and Allstar's Dino-World Dinosaurs are designed to find favor with young collectors. The line includes 12 species, from the always-popular Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaur and Brachiosaur to the Velociraptor made popular by Jurassic Park. They are styled in the customary "dino green" and in bright colors, and are recommended for sale at 50¢.

Also new are Squish Tins in 2" capsules, a new format for Allstar's durable 1" Squishy Animals line. The little creatures are now offered in matching tins, formed with rounded corners and equipped with keychains for convenient attachment. There are seven items in the line, including a Japanese-style bunny, frog, duck, dog and elephant, and each is portrayed on the lid of its tin.

"Our 1-in. product proved to be incredibly popular and we knew that kids love their mini-tins, so this is a perfect product pairing," said Allstar vice-president Sharon Shlien. "The matching artwork on the tins is manga-style, which is very trendy." She added that the items offer added value, because young customers can collect and display the figures and also store and carry small items in the handy tins. The recommended vend price is 75¢.

For flat-merchandise enthusiasts, Allstar has unveiled a Skull Tattoos series of 12 "fierce and funky" designs. Styled to attract both male and female patrons, the artwork ranges from a Mexican Day of the Dead skull through a "spooky skull spider" to a pink skull-and-crossbones emblem for the ladies. The suggested vend price is 50¢.

Active in bulk vending since 1969, Allstar is headquartered at 240 Voyageur, Pointe-Claire, Québec, Canada H9R 6A8; tel. (800) 685-7066.
