Here is a crazy business product that just might work.

At the very least it did get a lot of media attention because it was different. Maybe this would be a great gag gift LOL.

Just in time for holiday cuddly critter corpses (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22028434) - Look into any child's toy box and you'll usually find at least one stuffed animal that has seen better days a teddy bear with an eye missing or an arm nearly torn off. Now a British company wants to give you that look right out of the box with its line of "roadkill" plush toys.

The first to be launched is Twitch the Raccoon which comes with its own body bag, reports U.K newspaper Metro.

I'm just curious how you see this as a business product. It just seems kind of wierd to me.

I'm suprised that the animal activist people didn't protest this.
Could you imagine giving it to a little girl or something.LOL
Might freak her out.
Little boy might like it though.

I thought about this product a little while ago when I was in a steak house and on the menu they offered a meal called 'road kill' LOL

LOL . I've been in restraunts that offer it on the menu to. Most of the time when I'm traveling somewhere.
You would think that would be a turnoff. Thats funny.

how about using www.smcorp.com as a upsell.... home decorating products for inside and outside of the home.

People make a great licing just selling this stuff alone. I am friends with alot of members, i am in a chat room with them sometimes on monday nights

fountains
bird houses
water fountains
statues
and more

Would this have to be tied in at all with outdoor landscapes or no? How important is the upsell to be kept within the theme or genre of what your business is about?

it could be a part of the landscaping, but dont have to be tied in, just a suggestion

it could be offered in hardscaping also( the outdoor stuff)

Good thinking!

If you don't present the idea to the customer, you can't sell it!
