Hand tags on stuffed toys are made of perishable paper. They are connected with a plastic cord and were originally designed to be thrown away. That changed in the 1990's when collecting stuffed toys became popular. The experience of discovering a rare plush character to complete your collection was magical. Protecting your plush investment was suddenly important, and plastic sheaths were invented to enase and forever protect the PAPER hand-tag identity.
While collecting plush is AWESOME, playability is problematic. Your cute toddler doesn't collect plush (yet) and that paper hand-tag is an unsightly, bulky distraction.
What if you could do both... collect and play? Meet the Ripperoo® stuffed toys! We make our hand-tags out of the same SOFT fabric as the stuffed toy. Our hand-tags are mysterious and secret. They securely connect and lay down against the stuffed toy creating a mechanism that kids can open and close, over and over again. They offer descriptive information about the toy like a name, and they are permanent! Our hand tags are sewed-on FOREVER. We call them RipTAG® labels and this cool innovation is USPTO patent protected.
The Ripperoo's are ready to disrupt and change the plush market forever! Please check out our latest video at:
Are the Ripperoo's perfect for youoo's? Please reach out with questions or feedback. I would love to hear from you.
