San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2005
tWibbles LLC, the maker of the hot new collectible "tWibbles" that come in identical pairs for sharing and trading have created a special Limited Edition teddy bear named "Valor" for soldiers stationed or being deployed abroad. Soldiers will keep one of the tiny mementos and send the other one home to a loved one.
tWibbles are good luck charms, and they serve as a sentimental reminder of the person they are shared with. tWibbles are tiny and clip to virtually anything, so they can be carried with you on clothing, bags, keychains or jewlery.
"Our product is all about connection and the ties that bind, even across great distances. It was called to our attention that the troops don't have much in the way of toys or other fun items to send back to their kids during the holdiay season. It became our mission to provide our unique toy to these brave men and women to honor the sacrifices they make to carry out their duties. The soldiers are asked to keep one of the tWibbles and send one home as a symbol of the connection and love that binds these families together." said company founder, Heidi Jacquin.
The tWibbles are being handed out to the troops at deployments in the United States, and also abroad in Iraq and Afghanistan. 10,000 sets are being distributed as part of the USO Care Package program. The troops will receive the packages in time to send one of the tWibbles to a loved one during the holiday season.
tWibbles are making their debut in national retailers across the country this holiday season. The First Edition Set comprises 24 characters, five of which have been recently retired. Each character comes with a collector card that allows the user to register their collections and record trades for free. The product line was created as a positive way for older kids to enhance relationships and build social skills. Maufacturer's suggested retail price is $7.99 per set. A leash accessory pack makes it easier to attach your tWibbles to most anything. Manufacturer's suggested retail price for leashes is $3.99 per set.
Collectable, Tradeable, Wearable tWibbles are available in Target Stores nationwide, and at over 500 specialty toy and gift stores.
