“Yes, we actually hand make our wands and key chains right here in the USA… go figure.” We will never have ours products made overseas!
We start by cutting plastic tube that we have custom extruded to size.
After closing one end of the tube, we fill the tubes with a food grade oil. Cheap import copies of our products filled with water will evaporate through the plastic wall as time passes. Our wands will never evaporate. We have had a customer contact us that had one of our key chains for over 15 years!
The colored background sand is hand colored by us through a ‘secret’ process. We have fine tuned 15 different colors.
Using funnels to fill various ingredients into tubes. In the past I attempted to design various types of equipment to do this automatically, but people are almost as fast and in the end I wanted to employ people instead.
Glitter of course… very tiny glitter that is very hard to find.
And finally the magic hand touch, closing the tubes and sealing in all the goodness!
Since 1988 we have hand made all our novelty items at Zipadeedoodah, located just outside of Austin, Texas.
