It’s hot, hot, hot, but not as hot as ChillFactor!
Kids’ toy slushy maker sells out in many stores as temperature soars!
After several days of 30°c+ heat all around the UK, it’s definitely sizzling, but nothing is as smoking hot at present as Character Options’ ChillFactor™ Squeeze Cup Slushy Maker.
Manchester based toy company, Character Options, is fighting to keep products in stock for mums who are eager to own a ChillFactor Squeeze Cup for all of their kids, but this little gadget isn’t just a hit with the kids; it is also proving an after dinner must-have for adults who are using it when the kids go to bed for “cocktail o’clock!”
Families all over the UK are using the ChillFactor handheld slushy maker to cool off in this rare English heat wave and are enjoying deliciously icy concoctions within seconds as soon as they come home from school. Now with the summer in full swing the ChillFactor phenomenon is growing.
ChillFactor™ went on sale in late May and is almost certainly to be one of the top “toys” of the year and retailers such as Smyths Toys, Amazon and Argos are having stock delivered airfreight to keep up with consumer requests. Now, with the weather supposedly remaining hot for the upcoming weeks ahead, Character Options certainly has a task ahead.
Jon Diver, Joint Managing Director of Character Group commented: “We are experiencing unprecedented demand for our ChillFactor Squeeze Cups. As soon as stock is in our warehouse it is sent straight to retail, but in order to meet the demand the usual shipping methods will not nearly be enough and air freighting product has been the only option. We are forecasting that over the year we will sell over half a million ChillFactor units, which let’s face it is a whole lot of slush!”
