Reliable-Vendor.com’s HOT TOP 5!

The “Hot Top 5” is a general list of what we here at Reliable-Vendor were impressed with, received positive reviews by vending experts, or offered something special to the vending industry. This is not to say any product is better or worse than the next, but merely a listing of whats “hot” today.

  1. Angry Birds Star Wars  (Flatline)
  2. Cut The Rope Stickers  (Allstar)
  3. Angry Birds Dogtags  (A&A Global)
  4. Flashing Yo-Yo Mix  (TNT)
  5. Anime Glitter Fairies Tattoos  (VSi)

First off, I know I missed September, and I’m late here again. I’m striving to make more “reliable” content for Reliable-Vendor.com, but it takes time. I hope to have more “regular” content soon. So, without further ado, the HOT TOP 5 for SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2012!

5 Anime Glitter Fairies by Vending Supply Incorporated (VSI)

Glitter Anime Fairies

A relative newcomer to VSI’s stable of girl tattoos, the Anime Fairy tattoos are noted for being relatively inexpensive, and popular with customers of a wider age group and demographic. You have more “feminine” theming, glitter, fairies, and anime- an odd amalgam of things that VSI pulls off rather nicely. However, as nice as they are, they are still run of the mill tattoos, and will be replaced whenever VSI cooks up another solid seller when this one fades. Just the nature of the beast I suppose.

 

4 Flashing Yo-Yo Mix by Top Notch Toys (TNT)

In my experience, a good yo-yo ball will practically sell itself. The latest mix from TNT is no exception to that rule, but expands on it with their own unique mix. Unlike other Yo-Yo mixes, TNT has added other styles of Yo-Yo’s, comparable to AllStar’s Sticky Yo-Yo/Flashing Puffer Ball mix. The biggest twist is that it takes the more popular Puffer Ball Yo-Yo’s and pairs them with “spaghetti” Yo-Yo’s for an interesting, colorful, foolproof vending item. This is one of those products that will move- kids of all ages love these things, so there’s no doubt in my mind that the latest from TNT won’t be absolute dynamite!

 

3 Angry Birds Dog-Tag Necklaces by A&A Global Industries

A&A Angry Birds Dog Tags

The longer A&A has an Angry Bird’s license, the better products they seem to churn out. The new dog-tag necklaces feature all the birds from the popular game, pairing A&A’s excellent dog-tag necklace designs with a solid, proven license. As the Angry Birds continue to rise, these will be hard to find items after the larger operators get their orders in!

 

 

2 Cut The Rope Stickers by Allstar Vending Supply

Allstars Cut the Rope

Allstar Vending Supply is the exclusive license holder for Cut the Rope, a growing title from game studio ZeptoLabs. A physics based puzzle game, it has a following that is growing very quickly. The stickers are of all the characters from the game, and the quality is superb. These are the first vendable Cut the Rope products, and now is prime time to grab these before they’re gone!

 

 

1 Angry Birds Star Wars Stickers by Flatline Corp.

How could these not be number 1? Flatline has won the license for the massive crossover of Star Wars and Angry Birds. Every Angry Birds fan I know is raving about this incarnation of the game. The customer base is so wide and dedicated, I cannot see how you could go wrong with these. Angry Birds fans want them, Star Wars fans want them, it’s the perfect storm of licensed crossovers. As of this writing, I cannot think of a sticker line with better chances of great sales. I expect Flatline will be back-ordered for some time on these, so get your orders in when you can!
