Stop Right There
The Pitch: Being that I have, um, a slight problem knowing when to stop when I pull into the garage, my husband rigged up a tennis ball on a string, so I can only go as far as that. But hey, along comes Smart Park from Smart Play (asi/87800), which is a tennis ball attached to a lanyard. If we had received one of these from, let's say the auto dealer who sold me my adorable new car, Steve-O wouldn't have had to rig one up himself. It's really a great idea and pricing for a printed ball with custom lanyard starts at: 100; $5.08. See it here: http://www.smartplayusa.com/. The Bottom Line: On the ball.
A Sporting Chance The Pitch: Game Time drawstring backpacks from Jetline (asi/63344) are perfect for sports club and cheer squad clients all year long, because they come in various themes.
They include: soccer, football, tennis, golf, basketball and baseball and are made from 210D nylon. Pricing starts at: 150; $2.99 and you can getfree 24-hour rush service. Check them out: http://jetlinepromo.com/. The Bottom Line: Take one for the team.
Take Your Temp The Pitch: I need one of these for my pool! Item AD-373 is a waterproof AM/FM duck radio with a built-in water thermometer. It has a waterproof body and battery compartment. It's fromAdVantage Line (asi/31570) and it's also great for hot tubs and baths. Pricing starts at:25; $15.39.Click here to see this cute little fella: http://www.advantageindustries.com/. The Bottom Line: Hello, duckling!
Germaphobia The Pitch: You might say I'm a little on the OCD side, but I wash my hands as soon as I get home from the grocery store. And you know what? This morning, I read an online report that says, verbatim: "Shopping cart handles are a breeding ground for infectious viruses and gut-wrenching bacteria." Thus, they say that grocery stores are the number-one germiest places. So why not encourage your local grocery stores to buy up a boatload of hand sanitizers? And here is my big idea: They can put them in a huge basket at the front of the store with a sign that reads: "Customers please take a complementary bottle. We care about your health." Cal Springs LLC (asi/30111) offers anodorless FDA-approved 58 ml. hand sanitizer gel with a carabiner.Pricing (one working day) starts at: 150; $1.59. See it here: http://www.californialine.com/. The Bottom Line: Rub it in.
