Cereal-box prizes make parents breathe sighs of relief by keeping the breakfast table quiet, and now Soapsters are going to revolutionize bath time. Designed to entice kids into sudsing and scrubbing more often, each glycerin Soapster soap bar holds a toy in the center--accessible only when the soap is used up.
More than 100 different toys are featured in the 13 Soapster lines, which feature animals from around the globe, including sea life, jungle creatures and zoo animals. Kids can lather up with poison dart frogs from the Amazon, spiders, beetles, cats, teddy bears, dinosaurs, fish and horses. Soapsters also feature Halloween, Christmas and Hanukkah holiday toys. The soaps come in several kid-friendly scents, including grape, green apple, orange blast, bubble gum and jungle punch. Each 2.7-ounce bar is made of all-natural, vegetable-based glycerin soap.
Wholesale price: $2.50 to $3 each. Suggested retail price: $5 to $6 each. Minimum order: 36 soaps (assorted styles).
