BMI MERCHANDISE is motivating patrons to play until they win this holiday season with redemption prizes ideal for gift giving. A retro hot-air popcorn maker, Rock'em Sock'em Robots and Disney Princesses Collectible Castle headline the rollout. Other holiday time must-haves with generation-spanning appeal include a digital video camcorder, a remote control Ferrari and Angry Birds.

HMS MONACO now has Angry Birds toy jewelry and keychains. They're packaged for prize venders, cranes, rotaries and capsule (3" and 4") games. Also new are trendy feather hair extensions on braided cords made popular by celebrities like Steven Tyler and Selena Gomez. They come in assorted styles and colors, with clips, and are packaged for redemption counters and prize games.

PLAY TIME TOYS's new Christmas-themed toppers add a festive touch to candy cranes with a mix of winter- and holiday-themed candies, toys, ornaments and more. Also new is a vibrant assortment of holiday plush characters in regular, medium and jumbo sizes.

REDEMPTION PLUS encourages operators to stock up on its festive Christmas and winter-themed plush crane kits.
