In 2011, The Bridge Direct introduced Inkoos, soft characters that you can draw on, wash clean, and then draw on again. In 2012, the Inkoos characters are getting a sparkly new look. Blingoo Inkoos come with three Inkoos washable markers that attach to a key loop on the Inkoos character. Kids use the markers to draw and color on the Inkoos character, but kids can also add some "bling" with the four washable glitter glue pens and 12 colorful stick-on gems. Once kids are done decorating, the Blingoo Inkoos can be washed in the washing machine to come out clean and ready to be decorated all over again. There are four Blingoo Inkoos styles available (puppy, owl, bear, and cat), each with shiny embroidery and tons of white space for maximum doodling.
This is a classic play pattern that never gets old, but the sharp new look will really appeal to today's kids, including older kids who will like the contemporary anime-style look of the Inkoos characters. Kids will like expressing themselves through customizing their own soft Blingoo Inkoos friend. There are lots of creative possibilities with this toy.
Blingoo Inkoos are for ages 4 and up. Kids who like activity play and arts and crafts will probably be most engaged by this toy.
Inkoos markers should only be used on Inkoos. The markers may stain other materials that cannot be washed or laundered.
Remove the gems before washing or laundering. If they are stuck, you can use a little water to help remove them, but they should easily peel off.
