The Toddy Has Smudges Running Scared From Wireless Stores

OFFWIRE Distributing the Toddy Smart-Cloth to Wireless Retailers Nationwide

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) -  Toddy Gear, a provider of The Toddy and innovative and fashionable tech accessories, today announced a partnership with OFFWIRE, a provider of solutions to make wireless retail easy and more profitable, to distribute The Toddy smart-cloth nationwide. The deal brings the first collection of Toddy's to over 1,250 wireless retail stores across the country, including Verizon stores, making them the first brick-and-mortar retailers to carry the fashionable smart-cloth.

The distribution deal with OFFWIRE will help The Toddy continue its quest to wipe away the millions of fingerprints that keep consumers from connecting with their favorite tech gear. According to comScore, by September 2010 58.7 million people in the U.S. owned a smart phone, up 15% since June. That's a lot of dirty, smudgy screens. The Consumer Electronics Association's 2010 report on Digital America concluded that the average cost of a mobile unit was around $170. At those prices, consumers want to keep them looking new as long as possible.

"Partnering with the highly recognized distributor that prides itself in selling only the best in breed products is a great way to kick-off Toddy sales," said Todd Gabel, founder and CEO of Toddy Gear. "Demand has already proven to be high for The Toddy, and we expect to increase distribution to OFFWIRE in the coming year."

OFFWIRE has long established a commitment to quality products since it was founded in 1995. As a distributor of premium cell phone accessories, the Toddy Gear brand fits well with their wide variety of wireless accessories. With OFFWIRE as a first move partner, Toddy Gear enters the market assured that the product is in professional and well-trained care.

"The Toddy smart-cloth is a great addition to our line of mobile phone accessories," said Todd Green, Executive Vice President at OFFWIRE. "The high fashion design combined with its ability to effectively clean touch screen devices scratch free and without liquids is exactly what our customers are looking for."

The 100% ultrafine microfiber smart cloth has been in OFFWIRE's customer stores since mid-October, and has already sold over 4,500 smart cloths. The 5"x7" size Toddy is available in stores in single servings for around $19.95 and exclusively in packs of three.
