Richfield, MN, July 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Everything old is new again. So think Dallas and Andrea Poague, owners of Monkey in a Dryer screen printing located in Richfield, MN who are bringing back an 80s childrens icon, Sweet Pickles.
What is Sweet Pickles? Sweet Pickles is a series of 40 children's books from the early 80's that are set in the fictional town of Sweet Pickles and are about anthropomorphic animals with different personalities and behaviors. The series' name is a pun; in each book, the main character gets into a "pickle" (a difficult situation) because of an all-too human personality trait. Sweet Pickles books were read in various episodes of the CBS television series Captain Kangaroo. The popularity of Sweet Pickles led to many bath time products from Avon as well as sleep wear for kids. Today, Sweet Pickles have a loyal following of grown up fans who fondly remember the Sweet Pickles stories from their childhood. With Monkey in a Dryer bringing back the Sweet Pickles franchise, these fun loving characters will be reintroduced to their adult fans as well as allowing them to be introduced to a new generation of children.
While times have changed and virtually everything in todays society is being reimagined, Monkey in a Dryer is maintaining the original vivid color palette of the sweet pickles characters and adding old school graphic design elements. Combining quirky illustrator art with a graphic modern edge, Monkey in a dryer has created a new trend that's fun and stylish for both teens and toddlers.
Sweet Pickles t shirts will be offered for the Junior and Toddler apparel market using 100% super soft cotton tees screen printed with PVC free environmentally friendly inks. The toddler line will include designs printed on colorful organic cotton tees by American Apparel.
Monkey in a Dryer officially launches Sweet Pickles apparel at the Magic Apparel Show in Las Vegas Nevada August 25-27th 2008. Look for Sweet Pickles t shirts in junior apparel stores and children's specialty boutiques.
