Summer Reading Incentives

June 23, 2009

Here are some of the cool incentives I got for this year’s Summer Reading Program. In the back are Godzilla Babies action figures in the box and skeleton keycaps. In the foreground are zombie and alien finger puppets.

I found these incentives at Archie McPhee (www.mcphee.com) for roughly 99 cents each.  You may recognize Archie McPhee as the distributor of the librarian action figure.

Other incentives I’ve been giving away include: mini-highlighters, rulers, protractors, nutri-grain bars, doritos, books, mechanical pencils, erasers, pizza hut coupons, and a bunch of other odd ends.

Every year I have a debate as to what I’m going to get for incentives for the teens. I vacillate between practical items and toys. This year these toys were competing against a 3-ring binder. The binder although useful doesn’t have the same visual appeal as these trinkets. I’m hoping my decision is well received by the teens participating in this year’s summer reading program.

    I would say you made the right decision. Those are rocking godzilla figures.

    The toys are very cool. I would play with them.

    That said, they make pretty notebooks too, that could be super eye-catching. Also, the kids ’round here (depending on the age) love, love, love weird pens and pencils, with strange toppers or really fat grips, fun patterns, etc.

    Those Godzilla action figures could be worth a lot in a few years. Godzilla rules!

    I checked Archie McPhee, they do not have the Godzilla Toys anymore. Any idea where to get them from now?
