What a great idea from Douglas. These little mini Sassy Pet Sak Sillo-ettes look to be the perfect fashionable carrying case to carry some of your valuable information. Now why I think they will be very popular with young girls, I can also see a mother going to the park, amusement park, kids soccer game etc… using one as well. I know from experience that my wife and mother never want to lug their huge pocketbooks into the store and this could be something easy to use for them. Also for young girls that may not need to bring a lot with them when they go out of the house it also looks to make a lot of sense for them as well. You can check out a nice large picture of the wristlet-type purse below.
I wonder if our little girl’s pacifiers would fit in them? Hmm… maybe another use for the product. The thing that you know is that Douglas makes some quality products so no problems on that end. Hopefully I will be able to see more of the product when I attend the NY Gift Fair this year.
KEENE, NH June 2010 Sassy Pet Sak Sillos™ hit the fashion runways just over a year ago, and, because of their extreme popularity with today’s young girls, the Douglas Company design team is bringing out something even more exciting but just a “little” bit different. The keyword there is “little.” The latest handbag must have is called the Sassy Pet Sak Sillo-ette™. They are the mini version of the Sassy Pet Sak Sillo™.
Sillo-ettes™ are the perfect size for the quick trip to the mall or an evening party. Measuring in at 6, 8 and 9 inches tall, Sillo-ettes are intended to carry just the very important items like an ID, credit card, a few bills, perhaps even a cell phone. There are six Sillo-ettes in the initial introduction: Owl, Green Zebra Dachshund, Celebration Horse, Peace Dachshund, Lily Flower Cat and Pink Butterfly. Each is beautifully designed with brightly hued quilted fabrics and embellished with coordinating trim and faux gems. SRP: $11 each
Sillos™ are a full size bag measuring 10 or even 13 inches tall, where the Sillo-ettes are more of a wristlet-type purse meant to be slung from the wrist or belt loop. They are scheduled to be on store shelves in late September 2010, and they are irresistibly adorable. Even though they are designed for ages 3 and up, do not be surprised if you see the more mature fashionista carrying one around.
“Sillo-ettes™ are a fun new version of the very popular Sillos™,” said Erika Radich, Marketing Manager for Douglas Company. “They are crafted from hand picked fabrics and coordinate with some of our other fun and functional bags.”
Douglas products are sold at specialty gift and toy stores in the USA, Canada and Europe.
