POINTE-CLAIRE, QC, Canada -- Allstar Vending is greeting the arrival of autumn by rolling out two bulk merchandise series for 2-in. capsule vending as well as a novel fashion jewelry mix in 1.1" capsules.
Wiggly Worms for 2" vending are brightly colored invertebrates with buggy eyes, designed to provide "tons of play value" because of their stretchability and overall wiggliness and jiggliness. Supported by an eye-catching display depicting the Wiggly Worms creeping up out of the ground, they are supplied in 2" capsules with a suggested vend price of 50¢.
Building on the success of Allstar's Skull Tattoo series, the company is addressing the same market segment with Creepy Corpses. The line consists of squishy, stretchy skeletons in pink, purple, black and white colors. The skeletons stand 3.5" high; their elasticity permits them to be compressed into standard 2" capsules. Backed by a colorful display that will attract especial attention for Halloween season, the line is designed for vending at 50¢.
On a sunnier note, Allstar is launching a two-part line of fashion jewelry in 1.1" capsules. Finger toppers are, of course, fashion accessories for fingertips; the new Allstar line includes a cowboy boot, a princess crown, a wand and more -- 15 styles in all, formed in hot neon colors. Complementing them are butterfly rings displaying decorative red, blue, green, purple and orange lepidoptera. The mix is intended for vending at 25¢ or 50¢.
