Blu Cigs: Smart pack broke sales records

BY Allison Cerra

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Electronic cigarette company Blu Cigs said that its "smart pack" has broken sales records with 15,000 units sold and a one-week waiting list for orders already in effect.

The smart pack of e-cigarettes officially was launched less than two weeks ago, the company noted.

Blu Cigs said that it soon will integrate its smart pack with social media platforms to enable users to indicate their relationship status, network with friends and colleagues, and even identify locations that allow the use of the product.

"We knew we had a groundbreaking product before we launched, but the response and sales have surpassed even our expectations. The orders have just been pouring in," Blu Cigs president Jason Healy said. "We spent months polling our customers on what they wanted next out of their e-cig, and the positively overwhelming demand just proves we got it right. We’ve created a completely new experience that’s not available from any other company in the e-cig industry, allowing for a whole new level of social interaction among our users."

Brainy Baby adds Glowberry Bears to toy lineup

BY Allison Cerra

SUWANEE, Ga. — The Brainy Brands Co. is showcasing the newest addition to its Brainy Baby line: Glowberry Bears.

Glowberry Bears are interactive, plush bears who can talk and even interact with each other, via an incorporated “chip” technology. Additionally, each bear model is programmed with its own information and “personality.” What’s more, the bears giggle gently when tickled and also serve as a huggable "night-light," making them a unique bedtime companion.

Glowberry Bears will debut at the Toy Industry Association’s annual Fall Toy Preview in Dallas next month.
