Make a impact with these cool and customized toys!
While doing research on unique promotional products for an Idea Guy client, I happened to uncover top-secret suppliers of completely customized items that anyone my age will fondly remember from their youth.

"Prediction Ball"
Although trademarks prevent calling it the toy we all KNOW it's based on (a round, black billiard ball with a number between 7 and 9 printed on it!) these are faithful reproductions available with your logo imprinted on the surface. For additional impact, you can order a larger quantity that include YOUR custom messages on the ball floating in the liquid window!

Imagine having every message telling prospective clients to call you or visit your website!! Or creating your own toy prediction ball -- I always thought something like this would be good for providing computer technical support. Messages like "reboot" -- "kick-it" -- or "take a computer class" could appear in the little window.

There are two different ball sizes, and you can get keychains as well as pens with prediction ball toppers!

"Rubik Cube"
Remember these puzzle cubes? Each side was a section of same-color squares that you had to mix-up and then get back in order. I remember some of my friends cheating and peeling off the color stickers, or disassembling the cube completely and putting it back together in the right order!

My source can create these same cubes -- bearing YOUR company logo in full-color!

What a great idea for problem-solving companies: send them a mixed-up cube and tell them to give you call. Your company rep shows up and BING-BAM-BOOM -- quickly solves the puzzle cube, almost as fast as your company can solve the prospect's problems! OR... Keep one on each table of a restaurant; if the customer can solve the puzzle before their order is served, they earn a free dessert! These are also available in keychain format.

"Custom ViewMaster Reels"
Probably one of my FAVORITE toys -- the ViewMaster. It looked like a set of binoculars, but you inserted a circular reel to display 7 pictures in 3D, along with text the viewer window that narrated the story. My favorite set of reels had pics of Batman and Robin for the old tv show starring Adam West and Burt Ward.

Now you can promote your business using these completely custom reels! Imagine using these stereoscopic images to promote your hotel, catering business, or luxury limo service. Sometimes it's not possible to bring a life-size demo to every meeting, but with these 3D viewers, you can almost reach out and touch the picture!

Minimums start at only 1,000 discs (great for tradeshow giveaways!) and they'll even loan you a 3D camera for FREE.

If you're interested in using any of the above items to promote your business or service -- please send me an email with your contact info and project idea. I'll get in touch as quickly as possible!
