Among the new hoop designs is a version of UV plastic that glows in the dark. There are two new versions of the suction tongue ball. One has red, white and blue stripes, and the other is red and black in a design that looks like a spider web.
There are now more than 60 designs of Wildwear non-piercing body jewelry, and additional designs are due in the spring. The minimum order is $100, and there is a starter display of an assortment of 72 designs that wholesales for $99. The selection is from among the company's best sellers in each category. It provides retailers with a return of between 300 and 400 percent.
Units typically wholesale for $1.50 and have a suggested retail price of $5 to $7 or more. The primary target is teens. Management notes that some states do now allow piercing of people under 18 years of age.
No-pierce body jewelry appeals to parents, teachers and employers, since there are some jobs that do not permit the wearing of body jewelry. Because Wildwear is removable, it is also popular with adults, who buy pieces for fun.
