The Perfect South Sea Dream
A touch of paradise for the best time of the year: Summer holidays – with the romantic South Sea feeling from NICI.
Category: Press Statements
Altenkunstadt, 19th March 2012. Beaches as white and soft as icing sugar, palm trees swaying in the wind, lagoons with a fantastic underwater world – this is what characterises the South Sea. Mandy, the fun-loving hippo lady, who is spending her holidays there, magically brings the South Sea feeling into the new Summer Collection 2012 presented by NICI.
Mandy, the easy-going hippopotamus, is spending her summer holidays in the South Sea this year. On the very first day of her stay, she meets Pierre, the charming flamingo, at the beach. And it's love at first sight! During the entire holiday the unlikely couple is inseparable and flirts like mad. Glowing Ringo, the cheeky firefly, arranges the romantic lighting for those mild South Sea summer evenings and makes this holiday truly unforgettable. And who knows, perhaps this hot summer flirt will even turn into love for life...?
From March 2012 on, the hippo lady and the flamingo will claim their places in well-assorted gift und toy shops, the internet, department stores as well as the more than 30 NICI shops and will let everybody in the cold northern hemisphere share their South Sea experiences.
Mandy, the lovestruck hippo, is available in six different sizes, from 15 to 35 cm to grand 120 cm as standing dangling plush or in two sizes in a lying position. Her holiday companion Pierre, the flamingo, is offered in sizes of 15, 25 and 35 cm. The firefly Glowing Ringo, 15 cm in size as dangling plush, really glows in the dark. All three of them are also available as the popular beanbags with keyrings made of the typical NICI plush in tried and tested NICI quality.
The Summer – Sun – South Sea Look for at Home and on the Go
The Summer Collection 2012 promises a lot of beautiful items. Cushions in different shapes and designs are ideal for relaxing in the shade. There are rectangular plush cushions on which Mandy and Pierre are fondly smiling at each other, a special relaxing cushion made of terrycloth filled with soft micro-pellets, an oval-shaped plush cushion with a firefly glow effect or the handy, inflatable neck cushion with the comfortable soft plush cover.
Two resilient gunny sacks in a large and a small size as well as a flamingo plush bag offer enough space to carry your beach wear and accessories. And the kids won't go short either: Whether pencil case, purse, handy box, money box or lanyard – holiday feelings are immediately summoned as soon as one looks at the seasonal motifs. The Magic Band is a bracelet with colour change that magically makes coloured shimmering effects appear on sun-kissed skin. And on the mug and the lunch box, Mandy, the hippo lady, and Pierre, the flamingo, only have eyes for each other.
