Save Those Pennies (Dimes And Quarters Too!) For A Rainy Day With Bright Stripes’ Frenchie And Kitty DIY Tattoo Ceramic Banks
Bloomfield, NJ (August 8, 2022) — Budding artists will be searching the couch cushions and coat pockets for spare coins to place inside their newest piece of work, Bright Stripes Tattoo a Frenchie Ceramic Bank and Tattoo a Kitty Ceramic Bank ($19.99). To coin a phrase, this little piggy bank has a fresh feel and look as a new generation of kids and tweens discover that saving can be enticing.
School-age kids will go screen free for hours as they immerse their artistic side by applying water-decal tattoos and gold penned designs to adorable ceramic critters. Fingers and water are all that’s needed for a tattoo session.
Hilariously cute Doggy and Kitty-themed icons like paw prints, a fire hydrant, and pet toys get the classic tattoo-art treatment. The hardest decisions will be which tattoo to place where. With a pair of scissors, kids gently cut out — from the enclosed tattoo sheets — one colorful design at a time. Moisten then release each tattoo with fingers and place on Frenchie or Kitty. There’s plenty of room for expression from Kitty’s hair bow or Frenchie’s beret to their paws and tails.
The enclosed gold ceramic marker adds the “wow” factor to every artistic flourish. Grownups will be pleased to hear that no baking is required to set the gold detail. Simply add tattoos and draw with the gold marker, letting the gold ink dry. If kids make an “ooops” with the gold marker, rub away in the first 15 minutes, or use an alcohol pad to clean it after it’s dried. Phew!
Bright Stripes’ co-founders and partners Sabre Mrkva and Eric von Stein believe in the power of creative play to empower kids to create the world they want to live in. Working in the toy and children’s product space collectively for over 20 years, they have developed a synergistic vision for innovative products and graphics. Retailers and parents appreciate their colorful collections that are always packed with discovery, value and appeal for kids of all stripes.
