Leave the Lights On The Pitch: Here's a perfect party product: Fiber-optic light-up logo caps from Custom Light Up Caps (asi/47894).The supplier's name really says it all, doesn't it? Think of these for corporate events, schools, teams, concerts, fundraisers and more. The hats can be ordered with several custom options. Pricing starts at: 150; $14.95-R. Click here: http://www.customlightupcaps.com/. The Bottom Line: Cap it off.
In a Bubble The Pitch: What are you thinking? You can write it on the speech bubble dry-erase board from G.R. Kreations Inc. (asi/55585). The fact that supplier spells Kreations with a "K" tells me they are a fun and "kreative" crew and item spb is fun for offices and homes alike and it comes with four foam mount tabs and a black marker. Pricing starts at: 5; $19.99-T. See it right here: http://www.whiteboardzone.com/. The Bottom Line: Say what?
You're a Winner The Pitch: I know, I know: My prediction that the Phillies would be in the World Series again was wrong (sad face). Mike was right when he emailed and told me that I jumped the gun and should wait for the NLCS results. I was half right with the Rangers, though and would like to congratulate Texas and San Fran fans. Here is another clear winner: The jackpot lottery picker keychain, which instantly finds numbers to play in the lottery with the push of a button. Button-cell battery included. This is from Leed's (asi/66887) and it's a close-out item, so get it while you can at 74% off the original price! Check it out: http://www.leedsworld.com. The Bottom Line: Lucky numbers.
Sounds Fishy The Pitch: Can your goldfish do the limbo? Being in this industry, I thought I'd seen everything, but no. I was wrong. I'm going to spotlight this item on our Tuesday Morning Radio Show tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. ET. It will be one of my favorite things (www.asicentral.com/radio). But here I am giving you a sneak peek. It's the R2 fish school from R2Solutions LLC (asi/81623). It's a complete training system that includes everything you need to teach a fish amazing tricks, like playing fetch, shooting hoops, swimming the slalom, doing the limbo and more. This is a truly unique idea for pet stores, pet lovers, youth programs, fundraisers, etc. Pricing starts at:6; $31.66-R. Click here and watch the fun videos: www.r2fishschool.com. The Bottom Line: Rule the school (of fish).
