Winter Wonder Toys

Plan on dashing through the snow this winter? We’ve got you covered.

Here in the Midwest, we’ve had some unseasonably warm weather for this time of year, but the cooldown is coming. As one of our favorite season of the year hits, it’s time to start asking yourself, “Is my redemption room ready for the winter?”

We’ve talked a lot about why keeping your redemption area relevant to the outside world is important, and with the arrival of winter, you’ll want to add some cold-weather themed items into your prize selection.

Enter: Snow Tubes

According to Google Trends, you have between the beginning of December and the middle of February to capitalize on the Snow Tube popularity each year… so now is the time to cash in on the trend before it melts away!

We’re bringing back Big Mouth Inc® products into our line this winter. If you recall, this hip company was all over the Summer scene too with their pool floats. We’re swapping warm water toys for frozen water toys with our new Snow Tubes!

There are three options for you to choose from. In the saver redemption range at roughly 2600 tickets, these snow gliders will keep your guests coming back for more winnings all winter long. People of all ages love to go sledding on snowy days, making these prizes attractive to the majority of age ranges that will visit your center — just maybe not those under 8.

Let’s meet the “cool” stars of this winter! 👇

320689 | Giant Yeti Snow Tube | ~2600 Tickets

When the Yeti isn’t dodging photographers or antagonizing poor Rudolph, you can find him having a “monster” snow day out on the slopes. This tube will even let you slide down the hill on his back! Besides being comfier than those old plastic slabs you’ve been using, our Yeti Snow tube has a lot more personality. Simply inflate, find a snowy hill, then grab the comfort grip handles and take off. The thick, durable construction is great for sledders of all ages thanks to a smooth and cushy ride.

320690 | Giant Fireball Snow Tube | ~2600 Tickets

Have you practiced your victory pose yet? Our Giant Fireball Snow Tube is ready for an epic day of racing down the slopes — simply inflate, find a snowy hill, then grab the comfort grip handles and take off (don’t even pretend you don’t know the song). The thick, durable construction is great for sledders of all ages thanks to a smooth and cushy ride.

320706 | Giant Winter Flamingo Snow Tube | ~2600 Tickets

You know what they say — birds of a feather sled together. This big flyin’ Flamingo Snow Tube is taking a break from his Florida retreat to spend some time on the slopes. It’s much comfier than those old plastic slabs you’ve been using, and a helluva lot more fun — simply inflate, find a snowy hill, then grab the comfort grip handles and take off. The thick, durable construction is great for sledders of all ages thanks to a smooth and cushy ride.
