Winter Warm-up The Pitch: It seems like there's a 24/7 geese exodus over our house these days. My husband says they sound like my family, because they're so loud. (I have to admit, they do.) Yup, the birds are all getting out of Dodge for the winter, but for those of us who are stuck in the cold climates, 4 Sizzle Inc. (asi/55213) offers a new product to take the chill off. It's a winter headband with built-in speakers for iPods and other mp3 players and it's a great idea for any outdoorsy types. Pricing starts at: 2500; $4.08-R. Check it out here: http://55213.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: Cover your ears.
Not So Scary The Pitch: You can tell it's October, what with all the scary music and shadowy figures on TV … and I'm just talking about political ads. (Am I right? It's ridiculous.) But Halloween is also right around the corner and you can make things fun now and all year long for the kiddies. They love glow sticks and Chemical Light Inc. (asi/44888) offers light-up LED light stick/necklaces, which would be perfect for parties and events for young and old alike. The lanyard and batteries are included and installed and these are sold by the dozen. Not for children under 3 years old. Pricing starts at: 192; $2.10-R. Click here: http://www.asi44888.com/. The Bottom Line: Light up the night.
Remote Location The Pitch: Wow, was my remote working overtime last night. For a couple of mindless hours, I flipped between "Desperate Housewives," "Brothers & Sisters," the Phillies/Giants game and the season finale of "Sister Wives." Oh man, have you seen that show? You gotta love the remote control and whoever invented it and I also love this remote control and the inventors atChocolate Inn (asi/44900). It's an 8-oz. remote-control-shaped molded chocolate bar in a clear-top gift box with matching stretch bow. It's Kosher certified and has a one-year shelf life. This is a unique idea for entertainment-related clients, cable providers, electronics stores and more. Pricing starts at: 100; $13.80-P. Click here: http://www.chocolateinn.com/. The Bottom Line: Take a bite out of it.
Hot Flash The Pitch: Today is World Menopause Day. Isn't that delightful? There's a day for everything, isn't there? Well, it's eventually a fact of life and The Book Company (asi/41010) has a great book that addresses this topic today and every day. You should make it available to your health-related clients and women's groups. "Menopause - Chicken Soup for the Soul" healthy-living series, soft-cover book features inspiring stories and the latest information on diet, lifestyle, emotional issues, relationships and complementary therapies. Blank pricing starts at: 100; $4.50-R. Read all about it: http://www.thebookco.com. The Bottom Line: It gives one pause.
