Here´s a new line of stretchy products manufactured out of an innovative material, Hyper-flex, which is super-elastic and always returns to its original dimension and shape - no matter how much kids pull and stretch it. Available in 10 different versions, Inside Out Ball($2.50-$5.00) looks like a soft round ball, but flips inside out with one quick move to change into a soft spiky ball.
These Painted Tip, Inside-Out Balls come in two sizes. When flipped inside out, the painted tips reveal an array of color. They were introduced in January 2005 and have exceeded the company´s retail expectations. — Virtually every retailer who has these products has told TDmonthly Magazine over the past year that this is a hot-selling product. — “Are you kidding? They love them!” Chuck Susmilch, owner of J.T. Puffin’s in Madison, Wis., responded when asked how well they were selling at his store. “We always sell a lot at Christmastime.” He said that other stretchy products, such as the Urchin Ball and Glow-in-the-Dark, Inside-Out Ball from Play Visions, were also great sellers. — It’s a ball … it’s a wig … it’s anything you want it to be! Retailers want best sellers and the Inside-Out Ball is that, too, which is why it was chosen for a TDmonthly Top Seller 2007 award.
