I Wish I Would Have Invented This



When it comes to brilliant ideas for new products, I have to give a big thumbs up to my buddy over at Plopculture who is the brains behind the awesomely cool RPRT/Curad Skate Series bandages.

These officially licensed signature skate bandages are crafted to look like mini-skateboards and feature iconic artwork from some of the biggest names in skateboarding including NHS and Flip Skateboards.

This first series of skate bandages is now available at various retailers including Walmart, Winn Dixie, Price Chopper, Duane Reade, and Brookshire’s Food & Pharmacy.

In the future there will be artwork from other board companies featured as well as new bandages styled after different types of board sports.

Now go get yourself some of these amazing skate bandages and tell Mr. Meyerson that The Empress sent you!

    @Thundercat: I hear ya. It's the simplicity of the idea that adds to its brilliance.

    @Jewels: You are far from unoriginal, I've read plenty of your spicy writing ; )

    @Mrs. Hyde: I'll take that as a major endorsement from you and will certainly pass along the praises. I'm looking into possibly doing a future give-away with the skate bandages as a prize.

  16. Those bandages are the epitome of cool.

    But...my allegiance still lies with Hello Kitty.

    So what if it's an euphemism?

  24. Awesome! I saw bandages the other day that were lips and wanted to buy them but Fiance said he'd never use them. Maybe he'd like the skateboards better!
