That's a great idea and design. Since I don't really have a place to hang it I may use a tiki mug as a stand to keep it next to the sink.

I heard a rumor that there's a whole line of cleaning products in the works from our favorite tiki artists...

I don't drink too much, but why didn't I think of this. Just a week ago, I was sqeezing my big hand in to reach the bottom.. Nearly colapping my hand and still never reached. Didn't really taste the difference will all that stuff left at the bottom.

I'm in price negotiations with my factory on this. I've made some resin pieces in the past (jewelry, magnets, King Konga, C'Al pole & litle idols) but I've never made anything close to this in terms of volume. What I'm hoping is that you all can give me some feedback of what you feel a fair retail price for this would be, clamshell packaged with 4-color art backing. C'mon, please don't throw out #'s like $1.99 or $29.99. I have a guesstimate of what I want to sell this for (and as always, I want to put it out at a very fair price), but I'd appreciate any input. It will help in my negotiations. As there's really nothing even close to this in the retail market, I can't offer up anything to base the price on.
Mahaloz,
Holden

I would think it would also need a little rubber tip on the wire ends as not to scratch the inside of the mug.

I agree with Monkeyman...ballpark of $9.99 is fair. Most high grade brushes will run around 7 bucks with a twisted stainless wire handle...so add $3 for "Tiki Fun Factor" it's a good deal! Right in line with average low price of Tiki Farm mugs.


Flip-flOp-fLipPp...


Now what to do with the "clam shell packaging and four color graphics" ??? (IDEA) *Cut eye and mouth holes and add a rubberband...IT's A FREE TIKI MASK!!!

Yo, TJ...Your a madman...Lookin forward to seein you as the "Luchador Tikiman" at the next event. (Big Luv 4 ya Jonsey)
I will definitely back the $9.99 to $12.99 price range.. That seems to be right on point.

Between $12-15, especially if it's hand painted.
The handle would make a cool mug as well.

The Boston Warehouse line of plastic character utensils range from around $8-$20, though the paint op is much more simplified or non-existant in some cases than what you've shown. Could be helpful as a point of reference for your pricing. Target carries some of the line if you are not familiar:

Cool Product!..
I was thinking it may not need the "clamshell" package but simply tie it of to a backing card.. you could put some "instructions", barcode etc on the back and maybe a recipe,
Here's a quick packaging concept i whipped up...

That's a great suggestion Trav. It's actually the direction that I gave the factory but they have the tooling/machining capability in place to do the clamshell. I'm still gonna outsource in that direction but if the price difference is slight, I'll go w/the clamshell.

I really liked the Original Concept for this Mug Brush...
but I guess Tiki Faces sell better than Chongolio faces!
